Easy trip to book online In Scotland but once I got to Boston it proved difficult to confirm pick up point as I did not have a mobile phone with me. Fortunately I had brought my laptop and my Hostel did have Wi-Fi so I was able to bring up some details and Hostel made call for me. First driver from Boston was a wealth of knowledge and kept us all entertained on our ride to the ferry. Our Martha's Vineyard host was off a local Indian tribe and a wealth of knowledge and she told us just so much interesting information about how Martha's Vineyard grew through 1000's of years to present day. About the rich place it was when whalers lived here and how so many wealthy people vacate here nowadays. Despite the wealth that visits this island and the millions of dollars many have paid to live here, there is still an air of laidback living and somewhat neglect around the island. Those with power and money seem to be pushing out those families who have lived here for many hundred's of years but can no longer afford to live here. Sad but so common the whole world over when rich people descend on a location and try to make it their own.
