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. Hope you enjoy :)

One thought on “August Preview …

  1. Thanks for the list!

    I’m hoping to make an “evening” trip to catch the fireworks. 🙂
