Taken at 5:14 a.m. at Ocean Park, Oak Bluff by the Vineyard Colors photographer. We will be on the Vineyard soon, and I've been looking at the photos from Vineyard Colors on Facebook since winter. I wish I had it in me to get up at 5:00 a.m. (or earlier I guess), to get dressed and head out with my camera. Instead, I will live vicariously through the amazing photographer at Vineyard Colors. Most of the photos below were taken in May and June.

Brookside Farm, Chilmark.

One the many colorful cottages in Oak Bluffs.

Maybe I will see Susan Branch. When I get back, you will hear about my favorite beach on the Vineyard. We have been before and love having a picnic there every sunshiney day. In case you've never been to Martha's Vineyard - the three most populous towns are “down-Island” — Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven (also called Tisbury). The three rural communities are “up-Island” — Aquinnah, Chilmark, and West Tisbury.

Thanks for stopping by!
