An afternoon on Chappy: trip to Cape Pogue, a long walk along Wasque, a visit to My Toi, and most especially take in the breathtaking view of Cape Pogue from North Neck.

A morning jog on State Beach or a morning walk at Eastville looking for sea glass, then it's off to OB for ride on the carousel, followed by a stop at Tisberry for lunch - medium peach yogurt with raspberries, blueberries and toasted coconut. The warm afternoon sun draws us to the beach then it's Up Island for dinner on the beach and a spectacular evening sunset at Menemsha.
