Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts

Posted In: Favourite Places

My love of Martha’s Vineyard grows each time I visit it. The first time we experienced it was part of a larger New England trip, those few days made us want to come back and spend longer there.

During the summer of 2014 we spent just under two weeks on this beautiful island in Cape Cod. Thanks to a Peter Pan bus, which took us from Boston to the ferry port we were able to enjoy a holiday without a car, getting around by bus and bike.

We stayed at the Lightkeeper’s Cottages in Edgartown.

A film that is always showing at the Edgartown Cinema in the summer months is Jaws. This classic movie was filmed in 1975 on the island. We didn’t get chance to see it there but watched it when we got back home, although we were more interested on spotting the familiar locations in the film rather than the shark appearances.

Here are some of my favourite photographs of Martha’s Vineyard, mostly taken during that 2014 trip.
