Relax in Edgartown, nearby Edgartown MA lodging

  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 […]

Day trip to #OB

Did you know over a million people a summer take the Steamship Authority Ferry to the Vineyard from Woods Hole?  Hard to imagine, until you live in Woods Hole and you watch the people streaming on and off the boats. And while we spend the summer at the front desk advising people about how to […]

Lap of Luxury

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 […]

Winter Visits to Martha’s Vineyard

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 […]

Boating on Vineyard Sound

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 […]

Visiting Beautiful Up-Island Martha’s Vineyard

Blog Post by Megan Jensen My early trips this summer to Martha’s Vineyard kept me close to the main island towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Each town is unique and has plenty to offer for the casual journey to an offshore isle. But, for my last sojourn to the island before heading […]

Eight fun things to do in Oak Bluffs

This week was hot, hot like life on the proverbial tin roof, so I lit out for the open air of the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, hoping to catch a little wind on the way, and see the sights in Oak Bluffs.  I have been to the Vineyard many times before, but never explored every […]

The Martha’s Vineyard Chilifest is coming up this weekend, on Saturday January 28th in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard. 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 […]

High School Dating…

Construction blogging is like high school dating.  You flirt, you kiss for the first time, and then all of a sudden you have nothing to say to each other.  Yes, hard to imagine but I have run out of clever things to say about wood framing, Marvin windows and drywall. In truth, quite a bit […]

Rain or Shine…ing Sea Bike Path

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 […]
