On The Road: Martha's Vineyard

Current location: Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
Temperature: As high as 85, but a lovely 72 today – our most comfortable temperature of the trip so far!
Since last post we drove: 597 miles across four states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts.  

Loudest sound of the week: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, or possibly the Blue Angels practicing next door over Lake Erie
Along the way, we stopped and visited friends in Whately Mass.  We stayed in their super-cool tree house!

We also enjoyed time with their kids, lots of mosquitoes, chickens, cows. And did we mention a treehouse?!  Plus a beautiful hike up Sugarloaf Mountain (it’s technically a hill at 265 feet, but we will let them call it a mountain).

Now we are in Martha’s Vineyard visiting old friends, swimming in the ocean, visiting local dining establishments and enjoying a film festival. And of course catching up on work we have not be able to do on the road, like this blog post.

Since our arrival, we’ve been hearing interesting stories about the Portuguese and Brazilian immigrants and would-be immigrants on the island. These have resonated with what we’ve heard elsewhere as we’ve begun research for our documentary project.
More on that soon, but our next post will be a vlog of some of the cool things we’ve seen so far as captured on video.  Stay tuned!
