Martha’s Vineyard part 3

Today, we’ll continue our stroll around the small fishing village of Menemsha.

This is one way to do your shopping.  This couple took their dinghy to the store, bought something for supper, and and took it back to the boat they live on for the summer.  The two photos should be in the reverse order.

Dutcher Dock runs along behind the fish markets.  To the left is where the fishing boats dock to unload their catch.

These are a couple of the markets to buy fish, scallops, lobsters, etc.

This boathouse burned  down a few years ago.  I got some pretty good photos of the fire that I will post tomorrow.  See you then.
