October On The Vineyard, Part I …

October is speeding along too quickly and if I’m doing posts about October on Martha’s Vineyard I’d better get going on them.

I was lucky enough to spend 5 glorious days on the Vineyard with my daughter Deb and our friend and honorary family member, Dawn.   We packed a lot into the days we were there including meeting a new step-cousin and visiting with a dear friend as well.

In this first post let’s visit the

Stay tuned for upcoming exciting, fun-filled and picturesque adventures. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow…

This week, share something that glows. Maybe you’d like to experiment with some Golden Hour photography. We’re excited to see what you share.


This is early morning on Martha’s Vineyard.  The sun peeking through the trees creating a glowing splash on the grass.

October On Martha’s Vineyard…


October is, in my opinion one of the most spectacular months of the year.

No place is better for experiencing it than on Martha’s Vineyard.

Nature provides a fiery display of color in October, the greens and vivid colors of summer have been replaced with the rusts and orange hues of autumn.

The Vineyard is a beautiful place to visit in the fall … there are plenty of activities to take part in or just relax and enjoy the cool, crisp, beautiful month of October.

Here comes October……


Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered…

Share a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture, you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

My 2016 Calendars …

I enjoy making my own calendars and have for a few years now.  I do a wall calendar which goes on the fridge, and a desk calendar which goes… um hmm, on my desk, smart huh 🙂

Covers of both calendars …


Wall calendar with all 12 months displayed on back.. the cover picture is the gang plank of the Mayflower in Plymouth, MA in October.


The cover of the desk calendar is of a stained glass window in a store on Martha’s Vineyard …extra points to anyone who can guess where – here’s a hint, it’s in Vineyard Haven 🙂


The January pictures… harbor in Rowayton, CT and white flower in mercury vase.



 Stay tuned …  there’s 11 more months 🙂
