I have two days off! I took the ferry, which is just across the harbor from my dad's hospital in Hyannis, to Martha's Vineyard yesterday, where I am staying in a quintessentially New England charming rustic barn with friends.
Last night, we went to a jolly Blue Moon party at the lighthouse.
The railing around the top is very rusty. I didn't trust it.
The wind was blowing hard the whole evening, but it was warm.
First we watched the sun go down.
Then we watched the moon come up.
I found a snail embedded in a milkweed pod.
Are the trees dying from ozone on this island, just like everywhere else? Of course, why should it be any different here?
This is what the older leaves in this milkweed patch look like...but more on that later. I have an ocean to visit today.
