Home From Vacation
As someone who finds incredible nurturing from the ocean, I am truly blessed that Thaddeus’ sister’s family has a house on Martha’s Vineyard.
My Perfect Place
Water, sun, activity and no crowds…it doesn’t get much better than that. I even got a bit of knitting done while on vacation.
My sister-in-law’s family has a fantastic place on one of the largest ponds on Martha’s Vineyard. I have to look no further than the back yard of this place to take photos that will remind me of the serenity and beauty of my time there.
We were there with my sister and brother-in-law and our niece for this past week, had beautiful weather, ate like a school of bluefish in a feeding frenzy and had a wonderful time. We also bicycled around the island almost every day we were there and I even got to go our kayaking a couple of times.
If you zoom in a bit, you might even see me and my sister-in-law, Michelle paddling around the pond.
On one of our bicycle trips around the pond, I took this photo of where we stayed from the other side of the pond.
Suffice it to say, it was a fantastic time and it’s always great spending time with Michelle, Bill and Alexandra (as well as their furry friends, Teddy, Paisley Joon, Cassanova, Lilly and Stella…all delightful ways of helping us miss Finn less than we might have).
While there, I even spent a bit of time knitting (which I don’t usually do on my vacations). I ended up finishing the Old Shale Wrap and also starting a new one using a different color of the Persimmon Tree yarn.
I have trouble capturing rich reds and oranges on my camera, but the first wrap is quite beautiful. I didn’t think I was going to like the green and gold yarn as well, but it’s coming out very rich looking as well.
