Unfortunately although this is still shoulder season and rates at the hotel are still expensive, it appears most of the Vineyard has already closed for the season. Like 50% of the coffee houses, 100% of the ice cream shops, 50-75% of the restaurants, and 75-90% of the attractions. And the wonderful hotel we've picked has some serious problems. Like the Wifi is down and their support number isn't answering the phone. Fortunately I can use my CrackBerry as a modem but 100Kbps is a let down. Also, apparently we forgot to notice that Vineyard Haven (Tisbury) is dry so we didn't bring any wine with us; we went out yesterday to buy 2 bottles to BYOB but that is insulting since we have hundreds of bottles of better stuff at home. The restaurant last night (Zephrus) cost $88 for okay food but poor service for 2 people without anything to drink.
So, all in all, I'd say Martha's Vineyard is a lot like DragonCon. I'm glad we came, but I prob ably won't be coming back. I wonder if I will like Nantucket better when we get around to that in a year or two.
P.S. It turns out that the 4th floor router / access point which I found next to the ice machine has no enet cable running to it; once I unplugged the power to it so that I could connect to the 3rd floor router / access point it started working; I wonder if I can bill them for technical expertise.
