We’re gonna need a bigger boat, or a better vacation

I’m not the only freak in my marriage.  Here’s proof.  Last year, my kids and I got bamboozled into what we thought was a vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.  It was actually the Jaws” tour.

Brody’s house? Saw it.  The beach that the Kinter boy’s raft washed up on?  Went there.  The docks where Quint took the Orca out to kill the fish with Brody and Hooper?  Spent an afternoon there.  Oh well – my kids will need something to tell their future therapist, this is good enough.

Why should we have to suffer alone….below are a few of the stops on the tour.

 the aforementioned docks…

. Town Hall where Brody fought to shut the beach down    Something happened here, but I can’t remember

Cast/crew stayed here during filming (yep, stayed there)

  Jaws bridge – spot where the shark went from the ocean to the bay (or something).  Apparently everyone jumps off it. That’s my girl jumping off – squeezing in some fun.

Let me know if you’d like to go, I’ve got a very willing guide.

    That’s hilarious! It would be a pretty good vacation if everyone in your family loved the Jaws movie…at least the next time you all watch it you can point out all the locations you’ve visited!

      I didn’t mention it in the blog – but we watched the movie the night before we left with the kids (because isn’t that normal and health?!). Nothing gets you in the mood to go to the ocean like the ultimate shark movie – but that’s how we roll.

        That’s great! Being involved in many different aspects will help your kids to be critical thinkers. :D Plus, it’s just awesome to get really into things.
