Weekly Challenge: The Road Taken…

I have taken this road forever, I know it like the back of my hand.  My heart flutters when I see the words ‘The Islands’ as I know I’m getting closer to Woods Hole, MA and the final leg of my trip to the place that has been important to me my entire life… the island of Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Cape Cod, MA.  This road leads to….

… the ferries in Woods Hole, MA.

… which transport you 7 miles across Vineyard Sound to the Vineyard… where there are many kinds of roads to take.

Vineyard Februaries …

I’ve been to Martha’s Vineyard in February and I love it.  I love it any time but February is as different from summer on the Vineyard as you can possibly get.

There’s a  cold crispness in the air, the colors are more vivid, the Island is quiet and yet speaks volumes to those who take the time to look, listen and drink in the beauty and wonder that is the soul of Martha’s Vineyard.

February 1989…  a light dusting of snow made everything look like powdered sugar had fallen all over the Island.

February 1995…  no snow that trip but bitter cold.  Did not stop me from visiting the Gay Head cliffs in Aquinnah on the western most tip of the Vineyard… or hiking through the woods of Christiantown to visit the tiny chapel there.

I also  experimented a bit with black and white film. From top left… Edgartown harbor, Christiantown stone wall..Sengekontacket Pond and South Beach.

February 2007… bitter cold, dusting of over night snow, icy ponds and harbors… and brilliant sunsets.

My birthday is in February and sadly the only one I’ve ever spent on the Vineyard was in 1950 when my beloved godmother, Gertrude Norris passed away.  But I’m not anywhere near done having birthdays so who knows what the future will bring 🙂
