*Inspiration Weekend June 5 – 7 at the Tabernacle
A few years ago we decided to take the On Time ferry over to Chappaquiddick. In all the years of going to MV I’d never been to Chappy. It was time.
It was a beautifully clear day and we were looking forward to taking a tour out to Cape Poge lighthouse. When we got over to Chappaquiddick we piled into an all terrain open truck and off across the dunes we went.
Cape Poge Lighthouse is a 55 foot high wooden structure. There’s a staircase inside but to get out onto the observation area you have to climb up a wooden ladder and through a door in the ceiling. We were told many times by our guide to ‘watch our heads’… I was the first one up the ladder and I still can feel the bump on my head.
The view is amazing. You can see for miles in every direction.
Including down where my daughter and grandson were waiting. Being that I’m afraid of heights this was a big deal for me, but I’m glad I did it, the view was worth the slight tinges of terror I felt.
We had a really nice time exploring a little of what Chappaquiddick has to offer.
Back on the On Time II, headed to Edgartown.
Happy Birthday Tiffany, I love you.
Look closely. What sign does not belong on MV ?

Saturday, May 9th was the Shearing Festival at the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm. in Hopewell Jct, NY.

There was terrific music, compliments of Sax ensemble from the local high school.
Gorgeous wool and yarn to be had.
And of course shearing.
Patrick and Jeff, the shearer.
The sheep seem in a ‘zen’ state.
Beautiful Cormo wool.
The goats & kids are a tad muddier than…

Thank you Susan, Patrick, Erin, Harry and everyone involved for a terrific day.
