Sea-washed shingles, neatly trimmed cottages, cheerful flowerbeds, and a scenic harbor full of yachts and sailboats make Edgartown one of my favorite spots to visit on Martha’s Vineyard. Edgartown seems to emanate summer and relaxation, beckoning me back every year. The easiest (and most economical) way to get there is to take the Woods […]

MV Chilifest (also known as the Big Chili Contest) is right around the corner on January 25, 2014 this year! Start getting excited for the fun of the ferry ride packed with happy people headed to the big tent with all you can eat chili donated from local restaurants, live music and plenty of cold […]
The summer people (those who own houses and visit Woods Hole mostly in the summer) really know how to live — yachts waiting at the end of long deep harbor docks, vegetable gardens brimming with hyper-local fare, rose cutting gardens and tennis courts perched above private beaches. Surrounding the charming village of Woods Hole (where […]
Last week I wandered across the street from the Woods Hole Inn and breezed onto the Martha’s Vineyard ferry for a short trip to a place we neighbors refer to as “The Vineyard.” The winter is a wonderful time to visit, because you see real live Islanders, those hardy souls who choose to live year […]
Re-discovering Cape Cod from the water is one of my favorite parts of summer. As the days started to get shorter, and the crispness of autumn snuck into the air, I rushed to take my boat out onto the Sound. The warmth of the summer water made me feel bold, and we packed the boat […]

I blogged a lot about this last year so look here OR here for more photos and information about my experience at the 2011 version. FAQ’s about Chilifest – How do I get tickets? This is […]

The sky was glowering when I biked out of Woods Hole on the Shining Sea bike path yesterday, with a blustery wind blowing from the southeast which is where the summer storms blow in from. The breeze was warm enough, it was cool and pleasant, a perfect day to explore. The bike path, which is […]
