Martha's Vineyard, the idyllic island off the coast of Cape Cod, is captured in picturesque photographs of its common vistas and extraordinary scenery. The journey starts with an aerial tour around the coast of the island; then takes to the road and heads "up island" from Tisbury. You will pass through the towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark, and Aquinnah and visit a range of attractions including the cliffs of clay and the Gay Head Lighthouse. From the south shore, you will head east to the old whaling town of Edgartown where you will see the architectural styles of previous generations, up-scale restaurants, art galleries, and the nearby Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge. Then, heading back to where you started this tour, you will explore the vibrant, lively community of Oak Bluffs, home to the Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, which now has more than 350 gingerbread cottages. This book is a wonderful remembrance for all who have visited Martha's Vineyard.
