The dog days are upon us, and Triangle traffic is a nightmare. I shudder to think what my mostly abandoned PO box looks like right now, and I’m pretty sure it has been at least two weeks since I’ve driven through Vineyard Haven. Luckily I’ve been making it from my summer bunker to the beach […]
I had a weekend of birthday celebrations to attend this past weekend, which was a great way to catch up with some Martha’s Vineyard friends amid all of our hectic summer schedules. First up, Friday night we hit the Square Rigger to toast with lobsters for Amanda Hollyfield, the happy birthday girl. Representing Edgartown at […]
Well, Fourth of July was a great day to be a duck. Luckily, the powers that be set their sights on Saturday to fete America, the beautiful, and Mother Nature was happy to oblige with sunny skies and a clear night for fireworks — Arthur be damned. We all know it takes more than a […]
Today we mow the lawn, set the stage, prepare to hoist the flag. And tomorrow we celebrate. Happy birthday, U.S.A!
It’s hard to believe we only have one week left until Fourth of July. The kids are out for summer as of Friday, and we have one week left of comparative calm before weeks of full-on nonsense-level insanity. For my part, I have pulled the beach cruiser out of storage and hung up the car […]
The tents were a-rockin’ at the Doctor Daniel Fisher House this past Thursday as the Preservation Trust kicked off another summer season with their annual Taste of the Vineyard event.

Congratulations MVRHS graduates! I can’t believe how many familiar faces I saw popping up with mortarboards on their heads, surrounded by proud mamas and papas. I tried my hardest to swallow my desire to blurt “I knew you when you were this big.” But holy moly! Everybody’s all growed up. Luckily, the fresh new crop […]
Can we talk about the ticks for a second? They are everywhere! What was once a seldom occurrence in my household has become a daily encounter. The dogs are covered, the husband is covered, and I constantly have that phantom sensation that they are crawling all over me. So let’s consider this a public service […]
I somehow survived the long weekend. Something like 16 barbecues later, here I am back at my desk, craving green vegetables after multiple burgers, steak tips, and ribs. Definitely not complaining, but it is absolutely time for a salad or three. I logged about five miles walking around Edgartown on Saturday in the beautiful weather, […]
A “ride” turned into “might as well bring a grill and chairs,” and the next thing we knew, six hours had passed in a sandy, sunny, sausage-with-mustard-y haze. A couple of brave souls even jumped into the ocean. That’s one way to clean out those winter cobwebs right quick.
