Off season at the beach

Heading to Martha’s Vineyard from NYC, we decided to spend a night out in nature.  A night in between our existence in the East Village and a rural Island.  We found a campground, still open long after the tourists have gone that would allow us to make an early ferry to the Vineyard.  Horseneck Beach State Reservation.  Beautiful ocean views, sandy campsites and late access, good for leaving after work to drive late into the night.  Only drawback, being used to wandering out at 3am and getting pizza or falafel…. find some food in the middle of nowhere at 11pm.  We did though, and had a wonderful feast of salad bar items with a bottle of wine.  Ten minutes later and the grocery would have been locked up for sure.
