It's not uncommon to see sailboats on the waters around The Vineyard.
It isn't, however, as common to see so many sailboats in such a small area.
When we saw this many boats in one location we were pretty sure there was an event going on.
Turns out that it was the 88th Annual Regatta sponsored by the Edgartown Yacht Club.
If you know me at all, you know that I don't like to ride in boats. Sailboats are so tippy (in my opinion) that they completely freak me out to be in them. (in them, on them?) So although they are gorgeous and look beautiful gliding on the waves, you will not catch me in one of these in a very long time. I had a ride a dozen years ago and that will do me for the rest of my life!
It sure was a beautiful sight to see them all together, even though you wouldn't get me in one anytime soon.
We leave tomorrow (Sunday) and I'm truly going to miss this place. I have loved the friends, the food and the towns. More adventures from my Scion Road Trip will be coming and certainly more from Martha's Vineyard.
This was just a slice of life here on Martha's Vineyard. For more slices of life, head on over to Unknown Mami for Sundays in my City.
Have a great day!
