Lucky, lucky me, two trips to MV this year, May and October, both beautiful months to be on the Vineyard. Come along and join me, my daughter Deb, her dog Chappy and my granddaughter Tiffany on our adventure.
Welcome to Cape Cod… getting closer to Woods Hole and the ferry by the minute.
Arrived late afternoon on Saturday and mostly walked, browsed, stretched our legs and paws, enjoyed a good meal and then settled in for the night.
Sunday morning was stunning. After breakfast in the garden at Espresso Love we drove out to W Tisbury to the Artisan Fair at the Grange Hall.
We browsed, bought a few trinkets and then headed down the road to the whimsical and delightful Field Gallery. You can’t visit here and not smile.
A moment of relaxation and contemplation before moving on.
The afternoon culminated with a ride on the Flying Horses. You can never be too young or too old to not enjoy a spin and a chance to catch the brass ring.
After breakfast Monday morning at the Black Dog Cafe…
…we headed to pumpkin heaven at Morning Glory Farm.
Part of the afternoon was spent walking through the Campground.
This is the first cottage in the Campground…1864.
Tuesday’s breakfast was at Among The Flowers in Edgartown.
Then a drive Up-Island to the Beetlebung Cafe and to spend the day with a good friend.
The nexy day our time on the Vineyard came too quickly to an end.
Here comes the Martha’s Vineyard to take us back to America.
One final picture.
PS… Chappy waiting patiently as always.

I did not know the purple cottage, which I have photographed, was the FIRST!… I love the artisan fair at the W. tisbury grange hall. I carry a black leather purse I bought there, it’s very well made by a leathersmith who sells his leather goods there… I bet you saw him! He is usuall IN the grange hall, not tented outside. I have never been to the Beetlebung! Putting on my list……

Beautiful photos! Thanks for reminding me of all the lovely places to visit in the fall on Martha’s Vineyard! I have wonderful memories of Morning Glory Farm—with all the autumn bounty— beautiful pies, breads, veggies, etc.!
Espresso Love is a the best place for morning coffee and the Artisan Fair at the Grange Hall must have been interesting!
I’m so happy that you had a perfect vacation in Martha’s Vineyard with your daughter and granddaughter!

Hello Joan – Great pictures (as usual)! It seems that your most recent trip to the Vineyard was a pleasant one, albeit too short. My wife and I were there this past weekend, and we simply loved it! Just can’t seem to get enough of that magical place.
