Life on the Sea as a Mouse! 

Smitten with the Mitten

Recently I traveled to Michigan to visit family out there. I had such a wonderful time I would like to share with everyone! I had an extremely long lay over time and travel day, and that was Exhausting!! But I finally made it to Holland Michigan at 728 p.m. after leaving my house at 730 that morning. My cousin chris picked me up and it was very weird because he has a grown up job, and his own apartment  and the last time we really spent time together was in high school in the marching band. haha. (since he went to college in Ohio).

The next morning Chris left me a note and I was left to explore holland on my own. He lives four miles away from downtown, and I had no idea where I was going but I was determined to be a good traveler and find it all on my own!!! I rode into town crossing a highway, train tracks and everything else  I stopped and took pictures along the way. Holland is known for its tulips, but obviously no tulips were in bloom. This was the first time ever I visited Michigan in the Fall.

So it was really  cool to see all the nice foliage. I locked up my bike to a rack, and then roamed around. I met my cousin for lunch at the cutest little cafe EVER. I got a toasted chicken salad sandwich, and apple cider donut. Except they forgot my apple cider donut at first and then gave me THREE for the mistake. I mean come on people, I was trying to be somewhat good. hahaha.

The cafe had antique tables and chairs, all mismatched and just had the best atmosphere. I then spent the afternoon going into all the shops downtown had to offer. Downtown Holland is the CUTEST downtown I have EVER been too. Everything is so kept up, clean and charming. There was not a tacky store in sight, or dirty, everything was just so cute and classy. Here are somethings I came across downtown.

Hope College is located in Holland, and as I walked from store to store I was asked twice if I was a student there. I felt so awesome, and was flattered people still thought I was a student.Holland also even has a fireplace on the sidewalk in their downtown area. how presh!!!

For dinner we drove to my aunts house in South Haven where I spent the next night. We had a lovely chicken dinner and then, spent some time with family. I made blue and yellow jello shots for the upcoming game!

Friday morning I spent with my grandfather. He is such a funny man and I was excited to get to spend some one on one time with my G-papa. He is a business man, and never stops of thinking of business, he showed me all his business adventures, and how he’e made all his deals, and all the houses he’s built. The morning I was there he had a friend looking at cars for him in Pennsylvania  so that was exciting for him as well.

We drove around South Haven, my favorite town, where my mother grew up. It was weird to see it in the off season.

We visited my Aunt Emmy, and went to My moms houses she grew up in as a child.

We went to my grandparents old house, one I have great memories of as a child. He also had an antique mall on the property, which is still up and running by someone else and it was very cool to go here as well.

We then went to his new business venture, which is a storage area that he has renovated and made beautiful! He has a little office inside of it as well, with many antiques, and when we were leaving he said hold on one second I just need to clean the place, and whips out this old, old vacuum, that actually works!

We then had lunch at McDonald’s  where he goes everyday and they even know his order there and usually have it ready when he walks in. I mean it can’t get any more precious. We had a lovely day and I am so happy I got to spend quality time with my Grandpa!

After my time with G-papa My aunt and I headed to Detroit to pick up my mom from the airport.We walked around Ann Arbor eating fro yo and buying michigan apparel for game day. Chris met up with us later in the night, and then we seperated with parents. We decided that we needed rain gear because the game day forecast was rain. I wanted to go get boots from the local store, we went around 12 am and turns out our parents were there too. That was pretty funny running into them, I have size 11 feet, so the cute michigan boots didn’t fit me. the only thing in my size were “Tingley Rubbers” which were rubber outsides that went over my shoes.

 

Saturday morning was game day and was we expected the weather was crappy. Light rain and a little bit chilly. My mom and Aunt Coleen arrived looking as nerdy as ever. It was pretty funny. We set up the “tailgate” which was inside, sloppy Joes, fruit, chips, dips, all the good stuff. We indulged in jello shots, peppermint patty shots, rum and orange juice, and I promptly threw up. I rallied though and soon enough we headed out to the game. We all had poncho’s and I greatly appreciated the beauty of the poncho, they are just an awesome invention. We walked through tail gate parties, where my mother was hit on. (ew). Came across the drum-line outside the stadium and followed them into the stadium. That was fun, and made me miss colorguard.

 

It was homecoming weekend at University of Michigan. At the beginning the had all winning University of Michigan Olympians on the field, that was cool, and the alumni band and cheerleaders which was just funny.  We had awesome seats, and we danced and just had a great time at the game. There is a lot of traditional things they do at the game that was cool to see. My favorite was the slow motion wave. Whenever Michigan scored the student section would pick up the smallest girl next and hoist them up and down for every point. The score was 40 something to zero, so I am sure it got very tiring for them.

 

We were so exhausted from the day- drinking, standing, in the freezing rain for hours and hours on end. That night instead of going to the bars me and my cousins just layed on Erika’s bed and just chatted about life, and it was just as fun.

 

On Sunday we walked around Ann Arbor, and ate food, like Jimmy Johns subs, they were pretty cheap and yes, they do make them quick. Insomnia cookies, whats better? I saw a lot of the U of M campus, and Erika and I did silly things that we read from a book when we were out shopping. That night we went to the movies and I got the student discount because I still have my BSC ID ( I will be using that thing for years to come because it has no date on it of when I attended school). We saw trouble with the curve, and we loved it. JT was so AWESOME in it.

 

Monday I woke up and walked the neighborhood. I took pictures of almost every fraternity house I could find because I have such a fascination for them, I think they are so awesome, sorority houses as well. I loved exploring it by myself and finding my way through town. Later in the evening Erika and I went shopping and then decided to go out for the night. We went to local grocery store, and there was one of those mechanical horses and it was ONLY A PENNY. Its name was Sandy so I wanted to ride it really bad, I couldn’t believe it was only a penny. I took a picture on it and my cousin put in a penny, as soon as she put in the penny this woman came over to us and said “excuse me there is a 65 pound weight limit on that, you’re going to burn the motor out.”I was SO UPSET! My cousin said “well its a good thing she’s only 64 pounds!” hahaha. Later that night  ee went to a college bar called Charley’s. Unfortunately it was just the pub menu at this time, so we got pub food and a really cool drink called “The Bubbling Cauldron”. It was served in a huge mason jar, like HUMONGOUS and it was bubbling because there was dry ice in it. We loved it and it was super tasty. We then went to another bar, which had three dollar you call its, so basically every drink was three dollars and we took it upon ourself to try every drink we could. Cinnamon Toast Crunch which was made with Rum Chata, I love rum chata :). Dirty Bong Water, which was pretty tasty, White Gummy Bear, Superman, Key Lime Pie, Some sort of lime green and blue bomb that I didn’t like too much. We then went home and picked up paint to paint the rock! There is a rock on campus that gets painted almost every night and Erika and I decided that we needed to paint it as well. We had so much fun painting it and were laughing the entire time.

 

 

We decided to put Lindz and Erika “Were the two best twins that anyone could ever have” G-mama, Jay, an Anchor, 2012, And our states. We thought the rock looked really awesome, and I got paint everywhere. The next morning we went to go check out our rock and we put too much paint on it so almost all the words dripped down, but it was still sort of readable. We headed to lunch to the Famous Zingerman’s, where they filmed the five year engagement. They make their own bread, cheese, meat, so everything is like organic and unprocessed, which means one sandwich is fourteen dollars. But it has a really cool atmosphere, and the sandwiches cant be beaten so it was worth it.

 

 

 

Every time my cousin and I are together we buy underwear and then write memories on it from the trip. This time we got halloween underwear, and we wrote on it in the parking lot of McDonald’s outside the Airport.

This trip made me learn a lot about myself by spending time with the other side of my family. I am a lot like my Aunt Coleen, more than I have realized in years past. She loves to entertain, and have guests, and just by the way she set up the tail gate it was exactly how I would of have done it. I think we both take pleasure in throwing fun events and planning and decorating for them as well. My cousin Erika and I are more alike than we realize, we have the same taste, some of the same clothes, and pretty much the same life.

 

It was such a wonderful trip and it was fun to see Michigan in the Fall and spend some time with the other side of my family that I rarely get to see! I hope they can come visit me in MA sometime soon!

End of my Whole30

Thirty days of Paleo, it was… rough.

I learned a lot about myself and my eating habits. I was miserable/cranky/irritable, and every other horrible personality trait you can think of. As you can read about here: Beginnings of Paleo.

By day 14 I lost count of what day I was on, eating Paleo became normal, and I no longer thought constantly about the foods I was “missing” out on.

I think my favorite part of the diet is not weighing yourself until the end, Helps not obsessing over weight and just feeling good. I have no goal weight because I just want to feel good in clothes, in life and feel most important HEALTHY. I decided step one is to not be ashamed of my weight and openly share it, and even to the world, via Senior2realworld. :) I felt the changes, I felt good. My jeans from last winter were so loose I could not wear them. Even some yoga pants were loose. At the end of the 30 days I am  unsure of how much weight I lost, because I didn’t weigh myself before. I can tell you: before I had my gallbladder surgery I was at 222. After my surgery and not eating for 14 days and at my lowest skinniest nastiest point of the recovery time I was at 198. I began to gain weight once I was eating again. (duh) and I got frustrated and stopped weighing myself after 212. This was well before Paleo. After Whole30, I weighed in at 206.5

The first introduction I had was Graham Central Station Ice cream. To reintroduce sugar and dairy. I felt good. no stomach ache, Could not believe it. I had cheated (oops) through out the diet, very little, a bite of cookie here, food not cooked in coconut oil and I felt as though, I would die. My body rejected the idea of any of this, so I was surprised when I felt fine. I would also get extreme sugar headaches, my body was NO SUGAR. OWW. I had to go for a modified barium swallow and they made me eat graham crackers and honey nectar and fruit cups and I felt so gross after that I could barely shake it for the rest of the day.

Unfortunately the next day was my Cookies and Cocktails Party. Where I indulged in cookies and alcohol. Except I really didn’t have that many cookies because they made my tummy weird, and I really didn’t drink much of the cocktails. I had SEVERE acid reflux issues. Luckily my Dr. before I got off Paleo prescribed reflux medicine because food was traveling down my esophagus slower than normal.  I especially noticed this with carbs such as bread, cookies anything like that. But it was painful, un sure if I had this problem before and ignored it because I felt crappy all the time or if it is actually worse now.

I also BURP ALL THE TIME off the diet now. I am currently on vacation and traveling through various family members and I dont want to be that person a “diet” and difficult when it comes to meals because they are already nice enough to let me stay with them and cook for me! I am still making healthy choices when I can. (yesterday at the airport I picked a grilled chicken salad) over subway, the many chinese foods and sushi and mexican I really WANTED.

Once I return home from Vacation Paleo will begin again. But my own version of Paleo so it can become more manageable for me and a lifestyle.  For example, I am going to eat beans, and maybe the occasional piece of chocolate and dessert if its special occasion. I want to learn more about what triggers my  acid reflux!

Fun day with Science

….said no one…ever. UNLESS. You have been to the Boston Science Museum. Then a fun day with Science is almost guaranteed. Heres how the story starts- Lindsey surfing the web late at night instead of reading, like I should be doing- on the Library website to renew the book for the second time that I have finished the other two times, because I have been spending too much time on the computer… anyways, found out you could get the library passes ONLINE. great. I also got the discount library passes to different places with the kids, but never for myself. Why not try for one? Whats the harm? So I tried for the day pass to Boston Science Museum. and… I got it! So exciting!

Everyone should check their local library every so often, not enough people do and it is literally such a great resource for everything. They have so many free events all the time for children and adults, on my library website you can download free music! Rent movies, rent CDs and then upload them to your itunes, and never pay for music again. I mean cmon people lets rediscover the magic of libraries. like Matilda did, and look she turned out to have super power. So it cant hurt to try.

Our admission was reduced to seven dollars for each person for up too four people, for a family, that can save you a BUTT load of money. When I used the library pass for me and my three kids, we went with another family only two kids one adult, and they payed double what we payed. P.S. my library even has a free beach pass… who knew?

So I grabbed my partner in crime. My fellow sort of unemployed cousin- we both have schedules right now with usually unset hours. She drove to boston because she just bought new car, and off we went. The Museum was surpassingly easy to get to right off the exit. When we got to the Museum it was DEAD. It was wonderful!! September a great month to visit because there were NO field trips going on, and since it was a thursday children were in school. I am really enjoying the freedom of it all. I only work MWF’s, so that leaves me with Tuesdays and Thursdays, since my days are limited, I am trying to live up every day.

Now I have not been to this museum since second grade so I was really excited to go. I have very fond memories of this field trip with my beloved second grade teacher. In the lobby the stair case is a PIANO.! YOu go up and down the stairs and each stair is a different key. For 22 year olds we spent far too much time on the stair case, I was just trying to play mary had a little lamb, but decided it was impossible after ten minutes of exhaustive running up and down, splits and skipping stairs.

Before we went into the actual Museum, we decided to have lunch at the Museum Cafe. The Cafe has so many options to pick from I could not believe it. Complete with Salad Bar! So this paleo/ cave woman was happy. The view was incredible from the dining area, right on the Charles River, with a great view of Boston’s sky scrapers. There is something about fall in the city that I love. I think its because it is the perfect temperature for city walking, and the foliage is beautiful and boston is just such a green city were there are many trees to appreciate the seasons and weather. I clicked a pic of our view, can you see the paddle boarder?

The first room we went into was all models. What I loved about this Museum is yes, it was kid friendly, but also made for adults, the challenges they had, were difficult and it took me a while to get most of them, mostly because I wouldn’t read through directions.But I mean I learned about nanotechnology and how they are going to use it to cure cancer, (hopefully because cancer sucks). We had a lot of fun solving the different challenges, such as making sure disease didnt spread to my fish I was breeding, guessing items, diagnosing patients with cancer using CT scans, x rays, stopping the spread of cancer, lifting 500 pounds, guessing scents ( my favorite and expertise, my friends call me a blood hound) categorizing shells, and sneaking through the forest to hid from birds.

We stumbled upon this electricity room which was was happening to just start a show as we walked in. This show emitted electricity to music, it was so strange yet so cool, like purple lightening bolts making music. Sarah volunteered, and the man rubbed a balloon on her head and made static electricity. Her hair shot right up. It was also funny because she was broadcasted on huge T.V.s either side. I could not stop laughing and clicking pics of her. Here are a few:

                                

 

After that, we found a HURRICANE machine, you know the kind you see in the mall, which I thought we would for sure have to pay extra for, but NO! So awesome, it reached up to 78 miles per hour winds, not something I would wanted to experience in real life but simulated it was awesome. We laughed and laughed.

                           

I think the thing I was most amazed about was the Dinosaur bones. Like they found an ENTIRE dinosaur bones in the earth, and I was standing next to it. I just couldn’t fathom how old the bones were, and how cool it was to like see a Dinosaur  up close, Can’t be real that those creatures actually used to roam the planet. Blows my mind! They also had a metal structure of a Dinosaur  that since nobody was around, I decided to climb into, it made me feel pretty cool. hahahaha. I am so happy however Dinosaurs are extinct, and I am not a prey for dinosaur. Just their feet are HUGE!

 

 

We wrapped up the day, and headed to Boston College! Our mutual friend is attending BC  graduate program for nursing, and she is also an RA with a nice room! It was weird being on a college campus again, its always an adjustment  and watching her and her room mate do homework made me realize how much i DON’T miss the stress of college, and homework, my life just has so much freedom now I am really learning how to enjoy every moment of it. We watched the Premiere of Grey’s Anatomy. Seriously. NINE seasons Grey’s has been doing this to me. NINE. It was such an emotional episode, and I definitely do not agree with what has happened to a lot of the characters.

Being a tourist in our own state was a great time. I think it is very important to travel, even if its only 20, 3o miles away. As I grow older I am finding more things located around me that I had no idea existed. I am taking this time that I was given and trying to enjoy every moment of it, while getting projects done, traveling, and spending time with family.

My Second 5K

So My first 5k was the color run this summer- ( Still need to post about that)

The back story- I hated exercising- Pancreatitus and getting my gallbladder removed inspired a lifestyle change for me. I mean I did Color-guard in high school and danced in college. So it’s not like I had no form of physical activity but I wasn’t the type you would find in the gym. I decided I was going to become a runner. Everyone I knew that lost lots of weight recently, (which seemed like all my friends I thought we were supposed to gain weight in college but they all did the opposite) used to hate running and now was their man form of exercise. I began walking/ running the same route and running an extra telephone pole every time. No where near close to a mile. I also noticed inside on the treadmill I could run a lot longer- My most recent was 10 minutes.

So overall I am working my way up to running a whole 5k, but it will be a while. The color run I probably ran about .5 of a mile walked the rest. I am a serious power walker and have no problem power walking an entire 5k. I try to do that at least once a week. Running another story. So I am no shape to be running a 5k but I really want to push myself to do it.

So this was a real 5k. With real runners. Scary. The start was interesting. I hate running straight from start with no warm up. I ran the FIRST MILE! whooot. It felt like forever, I then began to power walk/ run. The route was split in half, so you had to turn around half way through. Weirddd. Did not like that. You could see all the people beating you run past you.

So overall I ran through the finish. and I completed it. My time for the first half was 17 minutes, and completed I finished in 38 minutes.

I dont know if I was feeling inspired to run more to give it up, but I really want to keep trying at it and become a real 5k runner!!! It makes me sad now that fall is here and 5ks will be no longer once winter comes. One of the many down falls of not living in California -_-. I like 5k’s because they are a true test of how well I am doing with my training.

Small steps to working my way up to my goal!

4 Months into the Real World..Job Interviews, Day trips, Enjoying the Passage of Time

Since this blog originally started as my transition from college to the real world I decided I should probably make a post about that!!!

Four months in and I am missing college more than ever. It was hard to see everyone go back to school, and start off the new year with out us seniors. I guess college really does go on even if were not there. It was also hard because most of my friends are still in school, and a few of them starting at new colleges, all new college life. So I was insanely jealous.

My room mate recently updated her status that said this and I thought it summed it up pretty well:

“yeah…call it denial, call it immaturity, call it whatever you want. i miss my friends at school. i miss having all day sunday to recover from saturday night. i miss drinking the night before an exam, the night of a basketball game, or just any night. i miss being an athlete. i miss walking to cvs/roche bros/bogarts/bsp for all of my life needs. i miss going to class and seeing everyone i wanted to see for the day plus more. i.miss.college”

So its been a very hard adjustment, I had no where to go once September came. But I was DETERMINED to have one next adventure. I couldn’t fathom working every day forever. I explored many options. I did get my SLPA License though! (Speech Langauge Pathologist Assistant) I have that for when I am ready for my real job. I thought seriously about cruise lines, and then set my mind to IT. I applied to SO many cruise lines, Disney was my DREAM. Except disney said dont even send your resume if they are no openings. There were no openings… but I said you know what. Im gonna do. What harm can come of it?

Guess who was the only cruise line that contacted me…. DISNEY.

So Life Lesson of the day:

Never Hurts to try

Honestly I used to think it was all B.S. when people were like just send in your resume anyways, just so they have it on file. it may help out, blah blah blah. WELL LOOKIE HERE. IT DOES PEOPLE. “weren’t hiring” PSHHH.

Like a great quote from the Last Sisterhood Book:

“You get older and you learn there is one sentence just four worlds long and if you can say it to yourself it offers more comfort than almost any other. It goes like this… Ready ”
“Ready.”
“At least I tried.”

So I was ESTATIC that for once I put my bait out there, and SOMETHING BIT. A BIG FISH. actually more than  A FISH. a WHALE. of what we call DISNEY CRUISE LINES.

So here we go. Skype interview. Skype interview.? SCARY. So it was with the disney recruiter. Turns out, we didn’t even use the CAMERA! ha! It was just “phone” interview. Well I nailed it and got moved onto the NEXT STEPP. boo ya.

This was back in July, and I had to wait until SEPTEMBER for my next interview. P.S. if you are looking into applying for cruise lines, its a very lengthy process.

September comes and this time its a real Skype interview. Spent the day stressing about wifi connection, finding the perfect background and practicing mock interview questions. To be honest, I didn’t think I did my best in this interview, I felt I could be more smiley, more happy, and more “disney”. I really wasn’t sure how I did.

Meanwhile I pursued the “real world” jobs, and have an interview with South Bay Mental Health, that went great and I was offered the position. But I dont think I was reedy for that, wasn’t there MORE FOR ME OUT THERE?

So I was relieved/ecstatic when a week later I got an email from disney and the subject line reading- CONGRATULATIONS. WHOOO. Now all I had to was pass my background check (takes up too two weeks) and my physical. Jumped through hoops to get that physical.

Not sure of my sail date, or what ship I am going to be on, but I literally can not wait, I am doing the best I Can so that things run smoothly.

Until then I will be blogging/working at my old dead end job, trying to get my life MOVINNN

I also have been trying to enjoy the freedom of the real world/ without school. My room mate and I cured our no back to school blues by taking a trip to MV which was awesome. We went on september 10. a monday, WE never have been able to take a random day trip in september before in OUR LIVES. so that was pretty awesome, the island was quiet and the weather was beautiful.

 

Heres a few pics I took:

My precious room mate:

 

 

We waited for the bus.. on the beach. where else can u wait at a bus stop..on the beach?

 

 

 

The two of us:

I LOVED this shirt, its my new mantra:

Paleo Lifestyle

Okay so I have been on a Paleo Diet for 9 days now. I am very mixed about it. For those who dont know its a caveman diet. No processed foods, sugar, dairy, or carbohydrates, the benefits are amazing, I am just waiting to feel them.

I didn’t have any real problems before I went on this diet, most people have headaches, body aches, other such things. I just really wanted to cut my sugar cravings because they were getting out of control, as you can see from my BLOG!

I REALLY struggled with diet for the first five days. Im talking crazy mood swings, cranky all the time and hungry. The beauty of this diet is you can eat as much as you want, which is awesome for me, theres not just not much to eat.

Once I figured out my menu more and grocery shopped/planned ahead, it started working out well. A difficult part of this diet is you have to make EVERY meal, you cant just grab cereal and milk or pop a bagel in the toaster. I was never a breakfast person but recently have been forcing myself to eat breakfast, so its hard for me to wake up early to make eggs or MAKE something. I cant just grab it and eat it on the way to work.

I was exhausted all the time, felt like how I did when I had mono, I think this was my body adjusting to making energy using protien (like its supposed to) rather than sugar or carbs.

 

No baked goods updates for a while, just be posting the boring Paleo Food. But some of it is quite tasty, this is longest I’ve gone without dessert in my life too. DESSERT IS MY LIFE. oy!!

Just a Perfect Day

I know Ive switched this over from my college blog to my crafts, DIY, do pinterest recipes really work blog, but I just need to to talk about this MARVELOUS day I had.

I went to Martha’s Vineyard and it was just so PICTURE PERFECT.

So woke up, and ate my three different kind of cereals, and headed to Alyssa’s house from there we New Bedford so we could take the New Bedford Ferry. It was wonderful. My cousin works at the Fairfield Inn so we got a parking pass from there and parked there for free, short walk to the ferry where we had tickets reserved, hopped on this wonderful ferry that was not packed at all, and we got lots of space and a table even!

Ferry ride over was beautiful, we drank mimosas that we snuck on and that made it all the better.

We got off the boat and Alyssa’s brother Jack was waiting for us at the dock and took us to the boat that Alyssa’s parents had parked in the harbor.

When we got  to Alyssa’s Family boat, Cracker Jack’s, we took the dinghy to the beach! Laid out on the beach and it was the most precious wonderful day.

We waited for my cousin Sarah to come in, and when she did we waved and jumped up and down as she pulled into the harbor, we boated over to her, picked her up and headed into town. We did a little shoppy- shop. Went into a bunch of different T shirt stores, and we got ice cream at Mad Martha’s.

Then we stopped in at Johnny Cupcakes, I LOVE johnny cupcakes, and they had in store exclusives that were just vineyard shirts, and I wanted them all, but I didnt get them all. I got a ANCHOR key chain, and a bumper sticker. We went into the classics, Vineyard Vines and Black Dog.

Then we walked to the green grass with the gazebo right on the water, and hung out there and enjoyed life for a bit, but not long enough.

We then went to the Sand Bar, which was a bar on the water where the ground was the sand. It was SO AWESOME. We got frozen drinks and nachos, and everything about it was wonderful.

 

From there we went on the Famous, Oldest Carousel, Flying Horses. It is especially fun because you catch the rings as you go round and round, and if you get the brass ring, you get a free ride, and of course Alyssa got the brass ring, and got the free ride and we all watched her go around for her free ride, it was pretty funny.

 

After flying horses we walked back to the boat and hung out and enjoyed appetizers just enjoyed the beautiful day.

We then walked over to Nancys/ Donovans Reef. They make the BEST frozen drinks for only 8 bucks. Cheap for the vineyard, and even around here. I got a raspberry pancake drink, and the others got , bahama mama, mango daquiri, and pina colada. Fried seafood and I got a Gyro. 

 

Then it was time for us to take the ferry back :(. We sat outside for a majority of the ride back and got swept away by the wind .

We had a great day, and I am looking forward to my next Vineyard Trip!
