Greenport Maritime Festival

We heard about this festival in June and since I wanted to show Stan this area of Long Island we decided to plan accordingly.  What a fun weekend this has turned out to be, especially since Xavier, Clare and Faith were able to join us.  Anytime I can have Xavier visit is priceless to me.  It’s been a weekend of boats, pirates, a parade, people, music, gorgeous weather, shopping and fun; what more could you ask for?

Here are pictures if you are interested in checking out the sights and of course, all the boats.

We’re having too much fun….

and I seem to be getting really behind on sharing photos.  Living in New England most of my life I always wanted to go to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard and we accomplished it this summer.  We had stellar weather  and a grand time exploring both islands. I think what really stands out in my mind about Nantucket are the really BIG boats there, the exorbitant cost of everything and the beauty.  It is definitely a different world of how the other half lives.












Here is a link to more Nantucket pictures:

next up are the Martha’s Vineyard pictures

Pictures of our travels on Cape Cod

I guess I am getting a bit behind on posting about our travels as we moved around on Cape Cod.   (Seeing as we are on Nantucket now).  Great times, a family visit and gorgeous weather have been with us.   We went to Cataumet on the “Upper Cape” as it was the only location where we could get a mooring.  We were too big for all the other locations and the cost of a slip at $270 night was beyond steep.

Here are pictures:

From Cataumet we came back down the coast and through Woods Hole Inlet to go from Buzzards Bay to Vineyard Sound.  Woods Hole was a wild ride as it very narrow and the currents are wicked.  Check out our ride as it sucked us in one side and spit us out the other side.

Stan wanted to go back to Hyannis as we had the grand kids on our last visit and didn’t get to see all that much.  We thought we would try anchoring out as there are no moorings but the windlass for the anchor decided not to cooperate.  Plan B took us into Hyannis Marina and a very expensive slip for the night.  Needless to say I was on the phone moving up our mooring reservations for Nantucket to the next day.  One night was enough to break the bank.  We did get a good walk about in Hyannis the next morning but still didn’t get to the museums.  Maybe next trip?

We are now having a great time in Nantucket and will have lots of pictures of this beautiful island next week.  (Don’t want to completely drown you this time with our pictures.)
