Mom, Dad and Tenielle visited me here in MVY for 10 days. They arrived after a bumpy red eye flight on Aug. 19 and left Aug 29. I picked them up from our very tiny airport after I went to the gym of course and immediately took them to a flee market, which was on our way home. Mom and dad needed a nap before I took them to South Beach and I waited patiently. I took dad and Tenielle to Back Door Donuts which is a place that sells warm donuts from 7pm-12am. The line is usually out to the road. They also did this the last day they were here. Dad loves apple fritters and they have really good ones. We went to bed early that night because we caught the early ferry out the next morning. It was a beautiful morning; so clear that you could see The Cape from MVY. It was so nice to be able to be off the island. You don't realize how trapped you are until you get off. It's nice here and all, but it's kind of like being in another country because you are separated by water from Target, TJ Maxx and Costco.
We returned back to MVY Friday in time to get Grace Church's Lobster Rolls, drink lemonade, and watch the fireworks that Oak Bluffs puts on at the end of each Summer.
The rest of the time we spent at the beach, playing cards, watching movies and relaxing. On the last beach day the waves were huge and there were rip currents. You know its bad when there is a sign that says, "expert swimmers in the water only."
Today is my birthday. I am 36
