Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard Adventures

     In September I flew up to Boston and headed east to Cape Cod for my friend Jocelyn's wedding for the weekend, which I blogged about HERE.  A few weeks before her wedding DFH found out he was hired for a new position at work and was unable to take time off and come with me to the Cape.  My good friends LES and ALV were nice enough to offer to travel with me to the Cape from Pittsburgh since DFH couldn't come, and they made a weekend out of it. 

    Jocelyn's wedding was on Friday so it was nice that we had the whole weekend for wedding festivities and to enjoy the Cape and take a quick trip to Martha's Vineyard. 

   I had been to the Cape a number of times growing up, but I had never been to Martha's Vineyard, and I was excited when I learned that the ferry  was only a five minute drive from where we were staying. 

I was a terrible photographer while we were there and this is the only picture I took of the cute little town of Falmouth.
On Friday before the wedding we spent the day exploring Falmouth.  The town is lined with the cutest little shops and restaurants. 
Friday night was Jocelyn's wedding and Saturday we woke to a spectacular fall day, and we decided to head to Martha's Vineyard for the afternoon. 
I loved the views from the ferry over to the Vineyard, especially the lighthouses.
It was not windy at all on the ferry.
Slightly better.
Once we were on the Vineyard we explored both Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven
Both towns were so quaint and had great little shops and restaurants. 
I loved all the buoys hanging from the porch of this shop.
The original Vineyard Vines store is located on Martha's Vineyard, so of course we had to stop in their shop while visiting.
Of course no trip to the Cape / Vineyard would be complete without a tasty Lobstah Roll.
I am already excited to plan another trip to the Cape!
