June 11 Martha's Vineyard

What a day. Not hot just June east coast weather. We started out the day walking the back path to Menemsha shore to look at the tidal pools. The woods are alive with birds and snakes and greenery. Flowers are in bloom. This is heaven.

Later in the day I went on my own to Gay Head Lighthouse. I asked a local if he knew of a beach here and he pointed the way, and you don't need to be a resident to use it. Just ten minutes walk from the lighthouse. Ah, an afternoon baptismal in the Atlantic Ocean. Refreshing and life giving. The shoreline had a Caribbean look to it today with light blue waters and white sands. It was truly beautiful.
