Below are some pictures of my Dad's meal! He had Russian Oysters and then a seafood salad.
I couldn't help but think of Susan Branch as we took this photo in Oaks Bluff, Martha's Vineyard. Whilst we were taking the photo an entire flock of geese flew over- it was breathtaking! As the waiter had my camera at the time I was unable to take a photo of them I thought I'd missed out... but when i picked up this batch of photos I discovered he had captured them!! (top left)
Susan Branch has a quote in her Autumn book regarding the end of summer being signalled by the geese flying over!! And you know what I think she is right! Because we also spotted this conker tree in Vineyard Haven!! And a couple of days after this beautiful day the weather changed also as we got the tail end of Hurricane Kyle.
On Becky and Dougie's last day on holiday we got up early and went in the pouring rain (Hurricane Kyle had brought some rain.. my dad and I even have on our waterproof trousers in this photo!!) and we went to Betsy's dinner in Falmouth... Old school proper dinner... it was good fun but I only had a bagel as it was getting ridiculous the amount of big breakfasts I'd had!!

The Columbia as we docked in Banisters Wharf, Newport after a great 4 hours sailing!
The house my Mum rented was beautiful!! So stunning! It was right on the water- about 2 houses down from the ferry terminal in Woods Hole that goes to Martha's Vineyard.
The view of our house from the Ferry. It was on two levels and had alot of out door space to sit out and enjoy the weather. We also had our own little peeble beach and jetty.
Above is the local bakery in Woods Hole- on the first morning my Dad and I went down to get breakfast for everyone. You can see my Dad behind the Open sign.
