Menemsha summer

Menemsha is a working fishing village on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.  It is one of my favorite places on earth.

  1. Thanks S. It is really peaceful, and laid back for the Vineyard. Most places up there in the summer are so full of tourists, with crowded streets etc. But Menemsha is quiet, without all the tourist trappings of gift shops and bars and restaurants, etc. Just a working fishing village. There was a place down by the water to get fried calamari, lol, and ice cream, so I was good with that! Some day Laurel and I may come see Sweden too! xo
