The day before a predicted snow storm is always busy with everyone out and about completing errands and battening down the hatches, collecting firewood and stocking up on provisions for an anticipated day or two at home.   While many New England snow storms miss us, the first real snow on the Vineyard is usually early January and we can expect to get a couple more big dumpings through the winter months.

Tea Lane Associates is proud to sponsor this Community Arts Project  - the "Covid Monologues MV: Readings to Nourish, Inspire & Connect" book to be launched this December.

Coming to the Vineyard for the holiday?

7am on a chilly sunday Halloween morning at the Steamship Authority terminal and a crowd of bleary eyed MV high schoolers gathered to board the “Nantucket”, which had been chartered by the school to take teams from Soccer, Field Hockey and Football across the sound to our rival island to play for the Island Cup.

As we enter the winter on Martha's Vineyard, things could start to look a little bleak as we start to think about shorter days and the possibility of staying home more often, especially during these Covid times.  However Slough Farm in Edgartown is offering workshops and classes to beat the winter blues.

The Iconic Lucy Vincent beach cliff pillar fell into the ocean last week during the night of May 1st 2020. 

April 7th marks the birthday of William Wordsworth the 17th Century English romantic poet, who is known for his poem “I wandered Lonely As A Cloud”,  perhaps better known as “The Daffodils”. 

The Chilmark Commuinty Center isnt just for Summer yoga classes, film festivals and kids camps, it has a life during the winter months too and last weekend the Children of the Chilmark School performed their winter concert for the community.

As the name suggests this inn and restaurant sits at the western end of Martha’s Vineyard, in the shadow of the famous Gay Head Lighthouse. You might think it's far, but it's so worth the drive, even in the winter and maybe more so when you get to experience the island in it's quiet un-touristy glory.  South Road takes you through Chilmark and as the road gets close to the ocean you are rewarded with beautiful water views and glimpses of maginifcent summer homes that are usually shielded from view by the trees.    Once you get to Aquinnah you realize why you came -  quiet roads, miles of unspoilt beaches and magnificent views like no other on the Vineyard  - its a real feeling of escape from it all.
