06.08.09 Great welcome to the Vineyard with perfect conditions on Day 1....

     It was an early start picking Steve up at 130 am making our way north. Got passed Stamford and the 95 shutdown by taking the Merritt Parkway. Had to stop and sleep for a half and hour as I was starting to fall asleep while driving. I was worried about crashing, but then worried about missing the ferry. Luckily we made it to Woods Hole with plenty of time for the 815 am ride over.

      Conditions were dam near perfect so we stopped and grabbed a bagel in Oak Bluffs and by-passed the usual stop to the grocery store and Coops to get in the water. We stopped by our house for the next week and it is beyond beautiful. Plenty of room and great views of Menemsha.

     We lugged out stuff down to the beach for the week, ladder, umbrella, and beach chairs and as Theresa took a much needed nap I started looking in the water on the start of the flood tide. The fish came up and I spent the next few hours casting to fish in the 24-30 inch range. I landed three after switching to buggy looking crab flies to a more exact replica. The wind went from our backs to into our faces and it shut things down. Day 2 looks better as the wind is near zero with high bright sun.
