One of the many day lilies that grow in Debbie’s garden.
Monarch on a butterfly bush.
About five years ago, Debbie took a tumble off this wall into the prickers (briars as we call them in the South).
Just my luck, she broke her ankle!
Then, guess who had to do the gardening chores for the rest of the summer.
Dead-heading day lilies….
……digging holes and all that fun stuff.
Debbie’s son Chris thinks the garden is a good place for a do-it-yourself haircut.
A few steps down the road into the town of Menemsha is the Homeport Restaurant, a great place to eat very good food, but be sure to bring your credit card! On the side of the restaurant is a back door, where the menu is less expensive and you can dine at the tables outside. We’ve done that a few times, and it is quite nice – depending of the weather, of course.
Across the street is The Galley, a fast food type restaurant, with a very extensive menu, everything from hot dogs to swordfish. A very good place to eat and reasonable prices (for the Vineyard).
At The Galley, order food in the front…..
…then take it around to the back porch picnic tables and eat with a view of the harbor.
A cool way to come to the dinner!
This is beside The Galley looking into the bight (harbor). This is where they filmed the scene in “Jaws” where the camera was in Quint’s cabin zooming back in until you could see that they were shooting through shark jaws. Quint’s cabin has since been torn down. Too bad!!
Next to the Galley is Menemsha Market, a neat, old time type general store. They don’t have everything, but they have enough to keep you from going hungry. Very nice proprietors.
Next, we’ll take a stroll to the beach – don’t worry, it’s within walking distance.
