MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Visiting Chappaquiddick …

Leave a comment

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.

After our tour we headed to Mytoi Gardens. Mytoi is a botanical garden maintained by the Trustees of the Reservations.

We had a really nice time exploring a little of what Chappaquiddick has to offer.

Back on the On Time II, headed to Edgartown.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. I'm also into genealogy and reading. Hope you enjoy :)
