Shining Sea Bikeway

Finally got down there. Walked approximately 4 miles out and back. I was feeling a bit tired and could feel it in my hips! Old much!
Skies were sunny-cloudy every 5 minutes I swear. You can see Martha's Vineyard from the path, kettle ponds, memorial benches. It must be really great in cooler weather.

Entrance:


 a bit of whimsy a short distance from here


mile markers. from the end where we began we saw Mile 3 first then Mile 2 of course.




different views of Martha's Vineyard





in that grey haze looks like a clipper ship to the right.

Oyster pond- Trunk River- Vineyard Sound
migration of river herring



and the rest are just random scenery





last one is Quisset Beach association and the usual private beach rules- no dogs no rafts LOL

The first photo in the group is of bamboo. on our way back a landscaper was raking and admitted in a short conversation that they would be using poison on it to control it. I shuddered inside but nothing I can do. So stupid.






the last two of this group of photos are the ultimate in serenity AND I could hear a Prince-Frog call my name. :)

**
Bird sanctuary and a path that leads who knows where.






and last but not least this huge utility pole with a "stapled" pattern wow.
