Mattapoisett Village

\The Village sits on the south coast of Massachusetts.   It's a coastal community where one, if so inclined, can board a small power boat and travel across the bay to Falmouth for breakfast or lunch.   Martha's Vineyard can be seen from the harbor and beaches and Boston is a stressful one hour drive north.

Mattapoisett is a quiet little town of  6,000 and was settled in 1750.  There are some old places to see in this quiet bike friendly hamlet.   The sun was shining this afternoon and all my chores around the house were done by noon.   A nice time for a short bike ride.

Part of the ride is on the Phoenix Bike trail in Fairhaven but most of it was through the side streets of Mattapoisett.  Large waterfront and water view homes make this ride a little different from the rural rides we usually take.
