“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding”
Hello friends…from the New England states! For the last 12 days, Butch and I have been enjoying an autumn road trip to this beautiful part of the US that we have never seen until now! We began with three days in Boston, then on to Martha’s Vineyard for three days, then we moseyed on over to Cape Cod for a couple of days, followed by a day in Nantucket, and we ended with a day in Newport, RI! Whew! Are you tired yet? We sure are…we drove the entire way! I have taken hundreds of photos that I must wade through, but I thought that I would share a little walking tour on Martha’s Vineyard with you today…and we are visiting two little towns! You better lace up your most comfortable shoes because we have lots of ground to cover!
We began our walking tour in Edgartown which was founded in 1642 and is one of New England’s most elegant communities. Stately white Greek Revival houses built by whaling captains have been carefully maintained. To really appreciate and view Edgartown, you must walk its streets!
Wesleyan Grove in Oaks Bluff was the first summer religious camp established in the United States. It is famous for its more than 300 Carpenter Gothic cottages with Victorian-style, gingerbread. Every color combination imaginable can be seen on these cute summer cottages!
Thank you for joining me on Martha’s Vineyard…there will be more from our trip soon, so stay tuned!
