First off, I would like to say happy fourth of July! I hope everyone had a great 3 day weekend!
For me, I took a short road trip to Martha's Vineyard, MA!
Me and a friend traveled all the way to Massachusetts by car but it was pretty rough since Hurricane Arthur was traveling with us. He wanted to crash the party and we just wanted him to go away. And that's how I imagined the whole scenario. Haha!
I do have to admit, one of the best things about the vacation was the food. So much good and new meals to try! The one on the left is rabbit sausage with herbs, wild boar with cranberries and a Guinness flavored brat wurst at an Irish brunch place. They also had a ton of Irish Tea which was to die for! The other photo is from The Black Dog Tavern, and we had clam chowder and a crab cake sandwich. There was so much seafood and yumminess that I couldn't contain myself! So good! *Droool*
One of the highlights of the trip was visiting Edward Gorey's house/ museum. He's a great illustrator that has great line and ink work. He knows how to use lines to create darker shades of black and to move the eye along. A lot of his work is related to death and horror but it's fantastic! Below are just some photos of the place.
Since the hurricane came during Fourth of July, we ended up going to Martha's Vineyard a day late. But it was fine cause the weather was amazing!! So nice that we got a bike to tour the island and it was a fantastic day to do so!
We ended up at the other side of the Island and visited the beach and Gay Head Cliffs. Something about this place is so peaceful and quaint. It was a nice break to see from the hustle and bustle of the city. The beach was a little painful since it was covered with big rocks and seagulls kept trying to eat our food but other than that it was fun! I want to say that I got a little darker or tanner but I would probably be lying.
But it was a great vacation in all! We did a lot of random things and we did have adventure! I learned a lot about myself- more about what makes me feel relaxed and what I would do regarding my future. It's such a great place to just empty all your thoughts out and take in space in your head. Even through all the rough patches of the trip, I'm glad I went!
So that was my adventure! I hope everyone had a great vacation and that they learned or gained something from it.
Till next time!
