Island…

This is a no-brainer for me 🙂  My blog started because of my obsession for my favorite place on earth, the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

My mother was raised on the Vineyard and I made my first trip there when I was less than a year old.  There are many, many things I could write about Martha’s Vineyard but I’m afraid this post would get really, really lengthy so I’m posting pictures of this beautiful map that I received in 1960.

This hand colored print was done in 1926 by painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Lloyd Coe. I love the details and bits of historical information.
