The building with the red roof is the U.S. Coast Guard boathouse.
Same building from another angle.
In July, 2010, it caught fire and totally burned up. We happened to be at Debbie’s house when she saw the smoke and called me. I ran down, camera in hand, ad took a bunch of photos. Some private boats wee lost as well as a couple of coast guard boats and a pickup truck.
A cormorant kicking across the water to help himself get air born.
This man, Bob, went out every night just before midnight to go fishing around the Aquinnah lighthouse. He usually brought back a lot of fluke. He went pretty far offshore in that little boat and we always thought one day he wouldn’t come back. But he always did. Due to physical restrictions, he and his wife Claudia don’t come to the island anymore. We miss them. They were good people.
The boat in the background is the ferry that brings people, cars, and trucks to the Vineyard. The sailboat is a sight seeing boat.
This bench is on the back of the filling station. It is called squid row because people sit there watching children trying to catch squid in the shallow inlet behind the boat dock.
We always enjoy the large flags in the harbor on July 4th. Makes me thankful and proud to be an American.
Part of the beach at Menemsha is quite rocky.
Our friend Charlie loves to fly fish, and he’s pretty good at it.
Sorry to say, though, this time he was not so lucky.
