It was more difficult than usual to get around as there were many more cars. What was quite a sight was the line of traffic heading towards Cape Cod and the islands as we headed home. This definitely justified our decisions to go early and late in the season. I could not imagine going to Cape Cod or the islands in the middle of the summer. On Martha's Vineyard the population swells from 15,000 to over 100,000. No thanks.
Below is a video taken as you travel north towards Boston, of everybody else heading south. It's not my video but pretty much echo's what Arlene and I saw yesterday as we headed home. Once again, no thanks. I often wonder, apart from getting a new bridge, since the "Big Dig", if the traffic is any better than it used to be, or is a good chunk of it is now 90' underground in a new tunnel. Still it all does look better than it used to.
This video was taken somewhere on the mid-cape highway and most of this mess is caused by the rotaries you have to negotiate to cross one of the bridges over the Cape Cod canal. It was almost like they tried to make this as difficult as possible.
As I said I didn't take any pictures though I do like to go back and check out some of the ones taken in the past. Sunrise from the end of the street the hotel is on.
The colorful downtown in Oak Bluffs
So that was trip number 14 since 2010. As always we love the hotel we stay at. It is so wonderful to have the staff recognize us and greet us. From the gentleman who maintains the grounds to the ladies who clean the rooms and work in the kitchen. All of them are wonderful people who went out of their way to say hello to us. Everything about the place and the island has a special place in our hearts.
As I write this it is hot and humid around here as it seems to be around the country. I have to go to the supermarket for a few provisions. I really don't like to go there but you gotta eat. There's laundry to do as well as checking in with Arlene. So that's it for now my friends and...
I am outta here.
