On island

As Sally would say, Hi. Bye.


That's her up there, waving good bye to Martha's Vineyard yesterday. We went for an overnight—took the ferry from Hyannis to Oak Bluffs, walked from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown, and then rented bikes. We biked all over the island—they have an amazing network of paved trails—and hit up the winter farmers' market at the Agricultural Society in West Tisbury. It was all pretty inspiring. 


We also ate some great food—a lobster reuben here, a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone at the Edgartown bus station, a mango lassi with Mermaid Dairy yogurt, a sausage with sweet peppers and meat from the pigs at the Farm Institute, and one of the best cups of chowder I've ever had here

On Tuesday, we leave for a week on another island—a remote spot in Maine called Monhegan. It should be an adventure—there are no stores open on the island this time of year, so we have to bring and plan all our food for the week. I can't wait to cook and relax and read and hike. We could use a little recharging around here. 

So Hi, Bye, so to speak. Happy Halloween, and I'll see you soon.
