August 2 – On Your Mark

August 2, 2018

Sleeping is overrated. And, honestly, who needs down time? Well, we hope you’re rested, because here comes August on the Vineyard. You might just want to wear your sneakers to bed so you can get up and start moving the minute day breaks. A short nap will be permissible, though; if only for the fact […]

July 26: Hold on to Your Hat

July 26, 2018

Hold on to your baseball cap—it’s all happening now. Tomatoes are ripening, the first local corn has been picked, sunflowers are popping.

July 5: To the Beach

July 5, 2018

Now that we’ve marched in the parade, watched the fireworks, and pretty much exhausted our wardrobe of red, white, and blue outfits (and exhausted ourselves), there’s nothing better to do in this languorous heat than to head to the beach. Grab the sunshine while you can; cooler, cloudier weather is headed our way this weekend. […]

July 2: Let the Games Begin

July 2, 2018

The 4th of July falls smack dab in the middle of the week this year, which means we have an excuse for celebrating all week long. You’ll find us at the farmers’ and flea markets, on the beaches, and at all of our usual stomping grounds but we’re also taking full advantage of the activities, […]
