I’ve always wanted to visit Martha’s Vineyard, an island known to be the relaxation retreat for the rich, powerful and upper echelon in the US. I figured since I was only a ferry ride away with some time to explore, why not embark on the opportunity! I had recently visited the Smithsonian African-American History Museum in Washington D.C. and learned of the first black family to settle in the Oak’s Bluff community, which later became the summer haven for the African-American elite. I found the stone that honored the indentured servants and later the home that was surprisingly still intent well enough for a quick photo. I traveled down tree-lined roads of bright-colored homes with unique designs, sampled chocolate at a local home-made make shift kitchen, visited the lighthouses that happened to be closed for the season and was fortunate to catch the sunset on the beach. My dinner for the evening consist of a freshly caught thirty pound lobster and a warm fixing of Barack Obama’s favorite dessert, the homemade straight out of the oven baked apple fritter!! Martha’s Vineyard is defiantly an island worth visiting if you have a few hours to spare!!
