A wedding in West Tisbury

As dusk settled, the ambiance was festive with twinkling lights strung among the trees and bushes surrounding the house — the music was rock and roll and the dancing began — not on a dance floor, but on the lawn. Katie sang four songs with the Bodes and Lucy joined them on the keyboard for several songs. This was truly an Island wedding — potluck dinner with smoked bluefish and smoked chicken by Aunty Sarah; pulled pork, grilled chicken, and lobster salad by Betsey; rice and salads and breads brought by guests.
