    That is very cool! I've got a trip to Woods Hole, a short ferry ride from MV, planned later this summer and this sounds more fun than driving or flying.

    I'm attending a workshop there. But there may be an opportunity for fun at Martha's Vineyard if things work out.

    I'll keep that in mind, Miker. I like all nautical options.

    be nice Andy....LOL

    Josh...dont know when you are coming, or when the last time you were on the Cape in the summer, but its quite insane these days..ferries to and from are sold out weeks in advance at times

    I was in Woods Hole last summer also and had the chance to visit Martha's Vineyard without any ferry reservation. I do know the traffic is bad on the Cape. It's over 30 years since I've been as far out as Truro though. It was wonderful back then.

    its still wonderful or I wouldn't be there....not the same for sure, but still good....the outer Cape from Wellfleet out to P Town has done a terrific job fighting the overdevelopment bug that has hit the lower Cape...still no franchised fast food joints from Wellfleet out to P Town....plus it helps that 60% of the land from Wellfleet to P Town is protected National Seashore Park land..

    I didnt believe my sister when she sent me the link..Who woulda thunk you could some day go to MV from teeny tiny Highlands NJ...Wonder if its advertised in NYC so the hip kids in SoHo know they can catch it from Pier 11..

    Mike we use to have connections with them as well..when the original owners first brought the boat service to our area,they were both customers of our business..
    the Westlakes and Snyders were the original owners..then they sold out long ago..every now and then i get a freeby from the bar tender that i know or a free ride to NYC from a deck hand that ive known for years..but i dont know anyone who could comp me a MV run.

    Thanks, Peter and Mike. I'll ping you both if I decide to take the ferry to MV. First they have to commit to run it mid-August. It would really be ideal if they stopped at Greenport on the way back. There is a ferry from New London so that's another possibility.
