This post is one of a series on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts made famous by its early settlement and long history, its wonderful beaches, and for its long being the playground of the rich and famous.
The entire series of photographs comprise five postings: 1) gingerbread cottages, 2) villages, 3) beaches, 4) by the water, and, 5) Gay Head point. The ‘Like’ button is only on the first set; that way you are free to enjoy the pictures at your leisure but will not need to keep coming back to ‘like’ them one over the other.
There are a number of villages on Martha’s Vineyard: Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Tisbury (aka Vineyard Haven to the residents, who, in fine Yankee fashion, use the two names interchangeably), West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah. All of these shots are from the first two villages listed (we got to the others but I did not get any memorable photos from them) but you should be able to get a sense of the area from the photographs below.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
