June 10th 2009, Honeymoon Day 3

In the morning, I got up and got breakfast from the dining area down stairs and brought it to our room to eat on the balcony while looking out to the beach. I thought that would be a nice thing to do to have our private breakfast together. The meal included orange juice, muffins, bagel with cream cheese, cheerios with milk, and waffle with syrup. It's not as fancy but we had enough food.

We took a nap before heading out of the inn. We walked to the town center of Oak Bluffs and checked out the several bike rental places to see what they offer. We decided to rent from King Rentals mostly because they are cheaper and the bike looked newer. We got the tandem bike which was bright red and looked like brand new. They gave us a chain and lock and off we went. Jenn was sitting in the back and she couldn't see where we were going because my back was blocking her view. It was scary for her in the beginning, but she got used to it after a while. We biked to Edgartown, which was another harbor town south of Oak Bluffs. It has more sail boats parked in the harbor and it has more small local shops for gifts and clothing. It was around 5 pm when we got there and we didn't want to ride the bike back thinking it will get dark soon after we have dinner in Edgartown. The bus doesn't take the tandem bike because it was too long, so we decided to go back by bus but leave the bike locked by the bus station. We went for a stroll in town and looked for a restaurant to have dinner. Jenn utilized her iPhone and found D├ętente. This was a small restaurant that is not very easy to find. It has a bar and a dining area with about 9 tables.

It was a Wednesday and the restaurant were full by 7 pm. All of the guests were couples. One couple was cerebrating their 20 something anniversary. The overall atmosphare was upscale and the service was excellent. The food was also excellent. We got a trio tartar with beef, scallops, and tuna for appetizer, and shared a flounder dish for entree. We also ordered dry rose Champaign and finally a bread pudding for dessert. It was a nice romantic dinner.

We went back to the bus station but we had to wait some 40 mintues for the bus, so we went into a near by shop called the Black Dog, a local brand that sells casual clothing for men and women and kids. We each got a bright yellow rain coat because we know it was going to rain the next few days and we were going to ride the bike back the next day.

After we came back by bus, which was a short ride, we walked around Oak Bluffs and saw what kind of stores they had. There was an arcade place and we went in to play. We played many different machines and got those tickets to exchange for toys. We played until the arcade was closed, at 10 pm, and walked back to the Beach House.
