We surprised Dad last week for his birthday on Martha’s Vineyard. Also known as Amity Island, it is where the movie jaws was filmed 30 something years ago.

And Patrick spotted Jaws right here on the island!

A wet seagull feather sparkled on the sand.

An osprey nest is housed up high and we watched as one circled in and joined it’s mate and young ones.

Joey enjoyed tossing sand into the ocean at sunset.

A few folks were fishing off the jetty.

Seagulls were everywhere. If you brought a picnic to the beach, you had to make sure you didn’t leave any food unattended or else you’d go hungry. These little thieves are fast and sneaky!

Sunsets were few and far between. The skies were overcast most evenings but we lucked out with this one.

We also enjoyed walking through craft markets and galleries in the many villages on the island.

There was an abundance of wildflowers. The wet and humid summer has done them well.

The ferry ride to the mainland on the last day was foggy, overcast, and dreary.

But the sun peeked through at times giving a calm and peaceful view.

It was so awesome surprising Dad like this. We all had a great week and he said this was the best birthday present ever. So glad we made it out there this year. Thank you Debbie for making it happen!

Joey and I sat and enjoyed the Menemsha sunset yesterday evening.

Today is my Dad’s 70th birthday. His lovely wife flew us out to surprise him and boy he was surprised! We are enjoying our time together here on Martha’s Vineyard and wishing we could take the beautiful rain back home.
