Wednesday Wonderings #WW: Conservation on Martha’s Vineyard


Martha’s Vineyard has a history of conservation and put some good regulations in early so that development did not occur on our South Shore beaches. The dunes have been kept intact and you’ll see lots of beach grasses with rosa rugosa in your travels.  That being said, we do not have many rental options on the South Shore that are beach front.  There are many pond front rentals that have access to the barrier beach via boat which can be a fun adventure for your family.  Therefore, it is not unusual to have a short drive to the beach or share an association beach with many of our rentals.

Halloween on Martha’s Vineyard!

Martha's Vineyard Halloween

I know it was a couple of weeks ago, but it was so impressionable that my husband, Owen and I will be making this an annual event.

This year Halloween fell on the weekend that Owen was commuting to the island…we alternate our weekends on and off the island since we also still own a home in Mansfield MA. Besides, Thanksgiving, Christmas and his birthday, Halloween is one of my husband’s favorite holidays. Frankly, it frightens me too much and I am anxious for it to pass. NOT this year. I picked Owen up at 5:45 in Vineyard Haven from the Steamship Authority (which runs year round) and we casually walked up Union Street, crossing Main Street, left on Church and finally a right or left on the infamous William Street. During our walk, we were all smiles and laughter due to the adorable children and most of the adults in and out of the storefronts all dressed in full costume. As we strolled to our William Street destination, the exterior lighting, ghoulish music, dry iced lawns were so impressive. Everyone was full of enthusiasm and having a blast. We later learned that each year there are approximately 700 to 1000 “treaters” that come through to show off their garb and grab a special treat. For safety sake most neighboring roads were closed to vehicle traffic during the prime hours of the evening.

My husband’s exact words when we reached our car to head home, “This was the best Halloween of my entire life!” We are both in our 50’s and as you can imagine have been through our fair share of Halloween events, but this one tops them all. Can’t wait for Halloween 2015 on MV – how about you?
