Back on the boat

We arrived at Tommy Dundee around lunch time yesterday after a three day drive from Somerset, PA to Portland, ME. We spent Friday night with Carla and Drew Barrett, our good friends near Philadelphia, and their twin boys Zack and Jake. We got a late start Saturday, so we spent Saturday night at a Fairfield Inn. Then on Sunday we drove the rest of the way to Tommy Dundee. After arriving at Tommy Dundee, Sara and the girls went out for lunch, returned the rental car, and looked around Portland.

Martha's Vineyard

We arrived in Martha's Vineyard after sailing through Quick's Hole, which was full of big rocks and strong currents. We picked up a mooring ball in Vineyard Haven (the main harbor on the island). We met up with the Stewarts and LaGuardias and went to the Back Door Donuts shop in Oak Bluffs. We rode our bikes over much of the island including all over Edgartown and out to South Beach. Recently, we discovered that our steering cable is badly damaged and needs to be completely replaced. This repair cannot be done on the island, so we are going to Falmouth(on the mainland) on Monday. The included pictures are from our time on the island:)
