SMAK 2011

It is Sunday morning and Missi and I are the only two stirring right now  The view from the Cathy's apartment is amazing.  But let me start at the beginning.....we got here at midnight EDT on Thursday, visited briefly with Cathy and then went to bed.  She has to be at work at 9 and is then flying home to Springfield to be with her husband this weekend.  We had breakfast at the greatest Portuguese bakery....had things we cannot pronounce and drove down to see Buzzard Bay.  What a surprise when we looked out into the water and saw the US Coast Guard ship....The Eagle.  Photo op for sur.  We then headed to Newport for the day.  It was overcast of Friday.  We toured the Vanderbuilt House - "the Breakers"....what a prime example of the very rich.  We toodled around all day seeing the sites and then went downtown and did some shopping.  We went back to the apartment and then later headed out to dinner at at a local favorites....Davy's Locker.  The food was yummy.  They are known for their scallops and clams. Back to the apartment and to bed so that we can get up and be in Hyannis Port by 8 for our ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard.....then to Nantucket....then 10:10 last night.  What a day....we took the bus route on Martha's Vineyard....not the way to spend most of your short time waiting for one.  We rented a car on Nantucket....that was money well spent.  We packed a lot into the time we were there.  When we loaded the ferry home we noticed that we were not on the speed ferry we were supposed to be on.....we were on the slow boat to China...and it was HOT!   Amanda spoke with the steward....and we took the slow First Class.  Whooo hoooo....cheese and fruit....and AIR CONDITIONING!  We got back....walked the forty miles to where the car was parked...drove through Micky D' was the only place open at latethirty.  We got to the apartment....I washed a load of clothes.....put them in the dryer....and put another load on....and went to bed.  I can't wait to show you the pictures.

Karen! You've certainly made the most of your Summer vacation. Sounds like you've been on the move and having a ball!
