For Valentines Day - DH gave me a nice weekend away - down to our favorite island - Martha's Vineyard. It was a crisp clear cold weekend - perfect for a weekend getaway to our favorite spot.
This is the outside of the inn we stayed at. Not overly fancy- but quiet and comfortable.
The upstairs hallway.
The fireplace in our room
Fancy big bed - not so comfy but it did for the night.
We walked around, lots of the galleries were open and I snapped a photo of this famous photo by Eisenstadt - I think it's of children at a puppet show. There are a series of these pictures and they are amazing. Look at the expression of that little girl in the hat - it's astounding how this guy captured these moments.
One of my favorite things to do is walk around and look at the houses on this island. There were so many whaling captains houses, - big houses, and little bungalows. Here is one that was almost hidden behind other houses.
This one was great, with it's sort of false front. The house entrance is on the side.
Look at the top half window's with their half shutters. Lovely detail.
This is a cozy little cape - I coveted it. Classic MV look - shingled and small, and cozy. Just my style.
Another tiny house that I just loved - my favorite are these little houses.
Tree root - doesn't it look like a foot, with the big toe turned outwards?
A little lane - leading to other little lanes.
Ocean view. Just look at that sky and the ocean. Such an amazing day.
New Englanders are so optimistic and realistic. The porch ceilings are often painted blue - I always liked that.
A harbor view...
Thanks DH - it was a wonderful weekend, peaceful, quiet and gently relaxing.
