Ahhhh. The kids are back in school. Schedules are pumping along at an even pace. Mother Nature is starting to paint her Fall tapestries. And I’m sitting at work in the middle of the week wishing I could run away for some midweek ‘me’ time.
As I ponder where my escape would take me, I feel cool air brushing strands of hair across my face, sounds of birds calling out to their flock, waves slowly licking the rock and earthen surfaces that contain them. I think I even hear the clang of fishing boats as they sway and bob in the dappled sunlight.
Low and behold, I open my eyes to discover Martha’s Vineyard and all the attributes that make it a highly desired destination to travelers who crave a rich history, endless beaches, a thriving culture and most of all an affordable getaway to six quaint island towns like Vineyard Haven.
How can I not be tempted to stay longer when I discover a mid-week bonus that goes easy on the pocket book and a Martha’s Vineyard Spa to rest and rejuvenate my weary bones after spending the day(s) doing everything there is to do? A Calendar Of Events feeds my love of a list, and I’m setting out to experience as many of the events and activities as I can before I have to return to the reality of life.
For now, this is the life. My life. Real or imagined, Martha’s Vineyard is a great place to explore midweek when the crowds are thinner, the opportunities to explore, relax, rejuvenate, shop, dine are plentiful and the affordability makes it guilt free. I think I’ll be coming back often. I might even invite a friend or two to see for themselves the beauty of “me” time in Martha’s Vineyard.
