Changing Leaves in Martha’s Vineyard

Porch Rocker

The lore of changing leaves and cooler temps beckoned us north.  Mr. Dasch-ing and I set off in search of fall weather, and we surely found it on our trip to Boston and Martha’s Vineyard.  While we’ve been to Boston many times, neither of us had ever been to Martha’s Vineyard.  So after a couple of nights in Beantown, we drove south to hop on the ferry to MV.  

Staying at the most delightful boutique hotel, The Hob Knob.  A perfect upscale getaway, just a stones throw from the heart of Edgartown’s downtown village.  Set in a 19th century Gothic Revival building, the hotel is classically styled and luxurious at the same time.  The smell of pumpkin bread baking greeted us upon arrival and throughout our stay.  Along with delicious scones and cookies, we were glad for the walks on the beach to diminish the extra calories we surely consumed.  Fireside seatings, afternoon tea, complimentary port wine, farm to table breakfast, coupled with porch rockers and bicycles for riding – you can see why we loved it.

It’s off season, and that suits us just fine.  The first two days were foggy, misty and drab, but we were not deterred.  We explored every nook and cranny of the island by car, hopping out to walk on the sand dunes along the water.  The beaches are long and quiet.  We loved the fishing village of Menemsha.  It’s charming harbor and seafood markets made it the perfect place to enjoy a cup of lobster bisque.

After a decade of living in Florida, I was in need of some new cozy coats.  I practically lived in this Black faux fur vest.  It was perfect for layering with my sweaters and lighter weight jackets.  For evening, I grabbed this leopard coat while in Boston, I basically want to sleep in it!!  It’s so comfy, and I got lots of compliments.  I’ve linked the rest of my attire and accessories from our trip here:

We’re happy to be back home in our brightly decorated cluster of cottages here at Marsh Rabbit Run, and we are so happy to add these memories to our hearts.
