Today’s post includes part 2 of our trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Check out part 1 HERE!
On Wednesday we made plans to eat breakfast out instead of at our airbnb and bike ride to the Joseph Sylvia State Beach. If you don’t know, Martha’s Vineyard is where they shot the movie Jaws! The famous Jaws Bride goes from Oak Bluffs into Edgartown with the Joseph Sylvia State Beach there as well. This is the beach where most of Jaws was filmed. It ended up being nice weather that day too- all throughout the week it was in the 60’s, making barely 70 degrees sometimes. This also meant the ocean was freeeeezzing! We actually ended up getting a pretty good sunburn from the bike ride!
The Famous Jaws Bridge
If you look closely you can see Chappaquiddick island in the distance to the far right of the picture.
Wednesday night we decided to visit Edgartown to eat dinner and visit the lighthouse and possibly Chappaquiddick. It ended up getting pretty chilly that evening, so we didn’t get to visit Chappaquiddick or the lighthouse, but we were still so glad we went to Edgartown.
All of Edgartown had these beautiful historic white buildings and homes.
How beautiful are these hydrangeas?!?
On our last day in Martha’s Vineyard, it ended up pouring rain and was so windy there was a Gale warning. This put a damper in our plans of visiting any more lighthouses, but we still had a great last day. The morning started out rough though. We had to be out of our airbnb by 10am, but our check in time for the other wasn’t until 3 pm. We ended up able to drop our stuff off at the other airbnb after getting absolutely soaked. Trenton got us rain ponchos but they hardly helped….we ended up looking like rubber ducks haha. We were able to take an uber to our destination for lunch in Vineyard Haven and hung out there most of the day until the rain let up. We then went back to Oak Bluffs to look at the ocean some. It was kinda scary how high and rapid the ocean gets when it’s storming that much. Later that day we got ice cream (yes on the coldest day of the week), dinner and decided to call it an early night since we had a flight the next morning.
Before & after we got drenched.
Our last morning there, we decided to get up early to eat a good breakfast at our favorite breakfast spot, Linda Jeans before taking a bus to the airport.
Martha’s Vineyard was so beautiful and we hope to someday be able to go back. We went when it was still considered their spring season so it wasn’t as touristy/busy as it normally is. Their high tourist months are the end of June, July, August and September. We definitely recommend going to anyone looking to go to the east coast or an ocean!
