Labor day on the Cape and Fall Events

At Edgardtown on the Vineyard - sunset from the boat

There is already a nip in the early morning air these days and those warm, end of summer, days seem so far away! Labor day weekend took us to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard this September. I tend to wax lyrical about the beauty of the Cape and the Islands during this time of the year. Hurricane Irene or the "storm" that hit us prior to our visit had hurt the local businesses there, but the long weekend was still magical. The beaches in Osterville were gorgeous in the morning when we went for long walks. The lake in Centerville was not warm, but the children were swimming, tubing and generally having a blast. We spent a day on Martha's Vineyard with friends who graciously invited us to visit their sail boat and stayed with others who shared their home with us for the weekend. It was amazing visiting the lighthouse in Edgartown ( the lighthouse keeper was playing Italian opera for atmosphere) and we caught glimpses of a wedding party walking around. Watching the sunset from the sail boat was spectacular. We can't mention going to the Cape and not talking about the local restaurants. The fish and chips everywhere are the best. But add the french bakeries for breakfast, Four Seas lobster sandwiches and home made ice cream for lunch and great Italian meals for dinner, we ate like kings! I came back to find our copy of the WSJ weekend section had a spread on where to eat and what to do on the minds?
Including some pictures of our visit!
