Greetings from Martha’s Vineyard!
I’m on my yearly trip over to the island with my best friend and her parents. I’m a lucky girl, they keep adopting me year after year for this trip ;)
Our trip started off as usual with a drive down to Woods Hole to hop on the Steamship over to Vineyard Haven.
Think we packed enough?? This was my stuff and Jocy’s stuff…me for 4 days, her for a week.
We thought the pile was pretty entertaining.
Yesterday morning I decided to hit up the local Crossfit Box here on island…
I’m glad I went! It was a pretty small gym, but everyone was really nice and I had a great workout to kick off my little vacation.
After a good warm-up consisting of sit-ups, over-head squats with PVC pipes, push-ups, and burpees we did this WOD:
- 800M run
- 30 ground-to-overhead (I did clean and jerks with 65lb)
- 30 burpees
It was a nice sweaty workout and I was back to the house less than 1 hour later!
Then after getting ready we decided it was lunch time. We hit up one of our FAVORITE spots in Edgartown: The Atlantic.
I know I’ve said this before, but Jocy has got to be my favorite eating buddy because 99% of the time we love the same things and we both love sharing!
We split the tomato bisque
and it comes with a mini grilled cheese with multiple types of cheese in there…including goat.
It’s just heaven
Somehow this grilled cheese and tomato soup has become probably become one of our Top 3 favorite meals on the island!
Then this happened….
I texted that picture to Brian…he said I wasn’t allowed in that store.
But he didn’t say anything about this store…
And I did buy one….any guesses???
If I could have purchased them all I would have…
Ok I’ll tell you…the Navy one in the middle! I was deciding between the Navy one and the one with the Yellow top. The yellow was more comfortable, but the Navy fit like a glove and I could probably get more use out of it! I was worried about the low back (see bottom right corner) but the dress is actually tight enough that I could go sans bra! Woo hoo! The dress is actually an Emma Graham dress, I got it at In the Pink which usually sells all Lilly Pulitzer stuff but they had a few of these too…the pink one I tried on (also LOVED that one) was also Emma Graham!
The day concluded with purchasing some delightful cheese, olives, and salami from here:
And finally this beast for dinner…
Jumbo lobsters were on sale at the Edgartown Seafood Market. Joc and I treated her parents (and us) to a nice 5 pounder!! We had it cooked and then her and I took all the meat out. We were going to have hot lobster rolls.
That would be the lobster next to a standard point and shoot.
Mmmm Mr. Lobster you were delicious. I was a little worried because I have heard larger lobsters can have tougher meat, but not this one! Tender and flavorful! We had a nice big salad and I had a pile of lobster meat. We feasted :)
Time to head to the beach! Have a lovely day!!
