Travel the World Wednesday - Marthas Vineyard

Happy Travels everyone! Again, it has been a couple weeks since we've gotten a well deserved travel in. Last week I was lucky enough to spend a few days with a friend at Marthas Vineyard! I am so thankful she invited me to go with her and her family, and it seems like such a New England thing to do in the summer, I'm glad I got to experience it!

Pack your bags, we're headed to MARTHAS VINEYARD....

So along with the treasury I will be sharing personal photos from my trip.  It rained the entire time up until the morning I waited for my ferry back home, as you'll see in the pictures!

I am realizing I'm putting together a lot of nautical-ish treasuries lately... but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it. I love everything nautical.  This treasury is unique because I found a lot of soft paintings to throw into the bunch.  Please click around, favorite, and share your fellow talented etsy artists!

Now for some photos from my recent trip....

We walked around the 'Gingerbread Houses' and the Tabernacle.  This area completely reminded me of my favorite place on earth, Chautauqua, NY.

We visited an alpaca farm (called Alpaca Island)! Who knew there would be a bunch of alpacas living on Marthas Vineyard?!  I have to tell you, these animals are some of my favorites so my insides were squealing with excitement when my friend told me we would go.

It was pouring outside, so all the alpacas were stuck in the barn.  I think this guy was yearning for some sunlight.

We made it to the beach! It rained in the morning, and sprinkled a little bit while we were on the sand, but it was still gorgeous. I believe we were at South Beach, and even saw a seal :)

One of my favorite photos from the trip.  The Flying Horses is America's oldest running carousel.  The little boy I was with would go on it a few times everyday.

Here's the sun shine! This was at Oak Bluffs dock, while I was waiting for my ferry to go home.  These little sailboats were from a junior sail boat class, all of the kids looked like they were under 10 years old. Very cute

Thanks for traveling with me today.  I'm wondering if any of you have been to the general Cape Cod area, and what towns did you like the most? I haven't spent any time in any other places like this, so I need to know the best from the best!

  1. So glad you got to enjoy Martha's Vineyard! It is a very special place and I hope you'll get to go back. I love pretty much all parts of Cape Cod but MV has a special place in my heart since I've been going there every summer since I was born. Thanks for including my mom's card in your collection!

  2. We used to go to Cape Cod almost every summer when I was younger. It was the go-to New England vacation spot. We liked Yarmouth a lot because there's a lot of touristy things to do there, but a drive out to Provincetown is a must. I haven't made it to MV, but Nantucket is also very nice. I'm glad you had such a good time!

  3. Rachel, thanks so much for including my painting in your treasury and here on your blog! I enjoyed your photos and feedback on MVI and long to visit myself. I have been to CC and loved it....Chatham was an especially charming place.

  4. Thanks for the tour of Martha's Vineyard! The only places I haven't been to in the US are all upper (north) east coast states. I would love to see this area!

  5. Despite the weather, you managed to take AWESOME photos!! I love the shot form the indoor looking out...just beautiful and you have captured the special moments. Thanks so much for sharing! I love your travel photos! :)

  6. I love your picture of the gingerbread houses, I remember seeing them for the first time - so cool. Hope you are able to get back there again, it's so relaxing just like the rest of the Cape. I spent many summers in Eastham as a kid - Nauset Light and the giant flea market in Wellfleet were among the highlights :)

  7. BEAUTIFUL pictures! I've been to MV once and to CC a few times(was an au pair in Boston 20 years ago) so this brought back some wonderful memories! Thanks!
