Martha's Vineyard with a Thousand Other Boats

21 August 2018 | Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts

On the way to Martha's Vineyard, we passed through the Wood;'s Hole Strait at slack tide. (It can be very raucous at max ebb or flood, and rock outcroppings abound!) With 1000 permanent residents, Wood's Hole has five oceanographic science organizations represented. There are as many marine scientists on the streets as there are tourists! The harbor front includes a variety of red brick architecture with a few tall ships thrown in for good measure. It was a gray overcast threatening day. We were impatient to get to Edgartown, our destination, before the rain. Once arriving at the inner harbor, we realized that reservations for a mooring ball would have been a smart thing. Calling the harbormaster on cell phone, we were encouraged to register on the website!! Good grief! We soon found out that there were no free moorings. We called the harbormaster back, saying we saw lots of empty mooring balls. He assigned us to one. Whew! They have a launch service that can take you ashore. Dinner was at a sports pub: lobster on flatbread (pizza). Only in New England!
