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.
The last time Lord Stanley’s Cup touched upon Edgartown, we at the Wharf felt we owed some thanks to a visit facilitated by Dylan from one of Tom Taylor’s taxidermied bears, which crowd-surfed the Pub decked out in Bruins gear.
Well, May really has jumped in over the past week to kick the doldrums of April to the curb. I spent so much time outside this past weekend, soaking in the vitamin D and enjoying — finally! — some fresh air. Backyard golf, burgers and dogs on the grill, bikes strewn across the lawn — […]
Ellie and Caroline Dolby attended their first Red Sox game on Marathon Monday, where they ate everything in sight, including cotton candy, hot dogs, kettle corn, Italian ice, and lemonade while donning freshly purchased Sox duds — sparkly of course.

I’m on a plane now returning from a lovely, warm week in New Orleans, preparing to get dumped on by two feet of snow upon landing. What were you guys doing while I was gone, a full-on snow dance? I leave you all for one week and it’s wintertime all over again. When technically speaking, […]
