Martha’s Vineyard: Menemsha Sunsets

Posted in Travel by leahyetter on August 11, 2010

Menemsha is home of one of the most dramatic sunsets in New England. It reminded me of Oia in Santorini, Greece.

Our first sunset was lovely but the clouds were very low on the horizon which prevented the full effect of the sun setting beyond the ocean.

The last night on the  island we had a clear sky and no clouds on the horizon.

With every minute passing, the color of the ocean and sky would change. It would all glow with a blue or purple hue, then orange.

A perfect view for our last night on the island.

Que the clapping, dogs barking, and children screaming with glee.

Martha’s Vineyard: Menemsha’s Harbor

Posted in Travel by leahyetter on August 10, 2010

This is an area of the harbor where the movie “Jaws” was filmed. Quints shack was temporarily built for the movie on this plot of land overlooking the harbor.

Patrick and I watched these fishing boats come in full of fluke and striped bass and much more.  The fish markets were always stocked with tons of fresh seafood that we gobbled up every night.
