Island Time: February 28-March 3: Ten Things To Do This Weekend

February 28, 2019

The windows and doors rattled and shook in the old house Monday night, keeping the occupants of the former summer cottage on the north shore awake and on guard. Outside, the roar of the wind was deafening, a small dog stumbled to get her footing, and the cold seeped through the lining of a parka […]

February 21, 2019

We had a wee bit of snow this weekend. A covering, softened just enough by sleet and rising temps to capture the footprints of rabbits and raccoons and dogs and deer before hardening back to a crusty record of one winter day on the Vineyard. We had sun, too. We walked through the woods in […]

But they’re out there, enjoying the ocean and beach which, ironically, people […]

February 12, 2019

We were all shocked to learn that this will be the last Valentine’s Day for Chilmark Chocolates, which is closing its doors after more than 30 years of delighting Islanders and visitors with outstanding handmade chocolates and candies—often with whimsical names like Tulgeywoods and Squibnuggets. Opening at 11:30 Thursday morning, the shop is likely to […]

Island Time, Feb. 7-10: Hope for the Flowers

February 7, 2019

Things are looking up. We have 10 hours of daylight. We hear a lot of garden-planning and seed-swapping talk on the street. (Yes, we hear other talk on the street, but we steer away from controversy.) We took advantage of the little warm-up this week to walk around the backyard, imagining where the new garden […]
