MV Obsession

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

The Islander Remembered …


February 2007, almost exactly 7 years ago was the last time I sailed on the Islander..


Even though not sleek or graceful, for 57 years the Islander brought her own special beauty to the waters surrounding the Vineyard. The Islander will continue to exist through paintings, photographs and in the memories of those who loved her. There was just “something” about her.

Early morning …


It was said she was going to be dismantled for scrap metal… I don’t think I want to know if that’s what happened to her or not…  I’d rather remember her as a beautiful tub of a ferry 🙂

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 :)

  1. She took us there so many times…..

  2. it’s like moving away from a house you built with love….you don’t want to ever go back because you know the new owners have changed it to suit *their* taste… want to remember it as you left it ♥
