Island Time, July 23 – 29: Vineyard Dreams
July 23, 2020
The week ahead brings opportunities to bid on one-of-a-kind Martha’s Vineyard experiences, to hear live music, and to take a custom guided wildlife tour — on land or over water. Of course you can always grab a carry-out meal and bask at the beach or sit by the waterfront and watch the boating world go by. The Complete Martha’s Vineyard Calendarlists your day-by-day event options; here are five to consider in the days to come:

Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary in Edgartown will pair you and your quaran-team of up to nine people with a personal naturalist for a guided exploration
