Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Part 2

Dear Reader, Martha’s Vineyard could be a foodie’s paradise. Recently, my boyfriend and I made a trip to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation (more here). While the island is a hub for tourists in the summer months, things are pretty much left to the locals in the dead of winter. Regardless, we enjoyed exploring all the... Continue Reading →

Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Part 1

Dear Reader, Martha’s Vineyard is a May to October destination. Between these months the temperature is warm, the restaurants and cafes are open, and the tourists are everywhere. Today, in December, the island is much, much quieter. So, as a tourist on Martha’s Vineyard in the winter, what is there to do anyway? On my... Continue Reading →

Views from Below

Dear Reader, Depending on how you count it, Martha’s Vineyard is about 70 to 95 miles from Boston. For the locals, anywhere on Cape Cod, including Falmouth, Chatham, and Provincetown are popular vacation spots. Unlike the mainland destinations, however, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are a bit more secluded as these islands can only be reached... Continue Reading →

Nothing to See Here

Dear Reader, One of the best feelings in the world is the exhilaration of being alive and present in a beautiful moment. Cameras can help us capture these moments and photographs allow us to preserve them indefinitely. I have many such moments stored right at my hip in my trusty iPhone. In fact, I have...

Happy Trails

Dear Reader, “Having hobbies” is a hobby of mine that I take very seriously. I’m impulsive about it. With sites like MeetUp.com and Eventbrite.com it’s easy to pick up and drop hobbies like hot potatoes — and that’s just what I do. Because some restrictions on group gatherings are being lifted (despite the worsening pandemic situation... Continue Reading →

Recently, my boyfriend and I took a car trip north to Camden, Maine and I want to share a little bit about my experience. Each... Continue Reading →

On Top of Mount Battie

Dear Reader, Not all small towns are created equal and Camden, Maine is far greater than its 26.65 square miles. Located on the water, Camden is a hub for sailing (more here), but also a great destination for hiking. A big draw to Camden is the Camden Hills State park. Most famously, the park is home...

Starboard Home

Dear Reader, What does one do on vacation in a small town? This is the question my boyfriend and I were confronted with when we decided to take a weekend trip to Camden, Maine (more here). Camden is a coastal town, home to about 5,000 people and a summer destination for wealthy New Englanders who... Continue Reading →

Just the Journey

Dear Reader, And we’re off! Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I ventured north for a weekend in Camden, Maine, a coastal town. In a subconscious realization of the refrain “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey,” we ended up spending our first day "in Camden" just getting to Camden. Due to availability, we ended...

Shopping in the Square

Dear Reader, Shopping during the pandemic has its challenges. When the lockdowns began in Massachusetts in March, we all turned to the internet for our needs and received our purchases through brown cardboard boxes in the mail. Amazon deliveries were so frequent to my apartment building that the storage lockers (where we sometimes receive packages)... Continue Reading →
