Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Martha's Vineyard #2


On our second full day at Martha's Vineyard we drove to Edgartown and found parking on the street near Fuller Street Beach.  My daughter, Emily, had read that it was a good spot to look for shells.  There were some very large houses fronting on this beach.


We walked to the lighthouse and then to the street.






We moved the car to be closer to the main part of the town and walked around.
The Pagoda Tree was a stop.






We got lunch and sat out on a bench to eat along the water.


Below was the ferry to Chappaquidick Island.


An interesting weather vane.


The church in town.





Across from the Museum which was closed was this house on blocks.  A new foundation had been poured.



On the grounds of the museum was this light from a light house.


More to come.

Love the lighthouse and the light. It is interesting to see clocks on church towers - a good idea.
