Martha's Vineyard poster

I had one of the best vacations I've ever had when I took a two week photography workshop on Martha's Vineyard in the late 1970s. I rented a tiny cottage in Menemsha called The Paint Box and I drove there all by myself from New Jersey with 2 dogs and a cat. We almost missed the ferry too. It was so much fun. I like the Vineyard better than Nantucket because of the variety. The towns are so diverse! Which of those islands off Cape Cod do you prefer?

I've never been to either place but I've been meaning to ask you if you follow Susan Branch ~ she writes and illustrates books, lives on Martha's vineyard, spent 2 months in the England countryside this summer and loves everything Beatrix Potter. You two like a lot of the same things! Here's her blog address in case you aren't a follower~
I'll have to say Martha's vineyard since Susan entertains me often with pictures and news of the island. Blessings, Cathy in Idaho

I did not realize that Susan Branch lived on the vineyard. I like her work too.

I've only been to Cape Cod. You are so lucky to live close enough to drive there for a long weekend. I loved Massachusetts on my one trip to the state and would love to return sometime.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Karen...There is nothing easy about driving to the cape from New Jersey. It is a long drive and there is a always a bottleneck in one location. It's very nerve racking.

Have a wonderful weekend too. Rosemary
