Vineyard Vibe
  1. The Haves – Have Nots! A Vineyard Commentary

    The Martha’s Vineyard Times has been running a summer series on various individuals that make the island their home in the summer. It is titled “Summer People“. To follow is a Letter to the Editor I sent upon reading the 4th in the series. It seems to have struck  a chord with a lot of people. I thought therefore that it might be worth putting it here in my blog in the hopes of getting other people’s impression of the issue I had raised and the perception that I feel it had left.

    Here is the intro to the series mentioned  in my letter


    “Summer People,
    a weekly MVTIMES series, whose goal is to introduce readers to their summer neighbors, some of them prominent and extraordinarily accomplished,some whose lives are less exalted, all of them Islanders in their own ways. How do they describe their connections to the Vineyard and their seasonal Island neighbors? How do they describe their off-Island lives?”

It can get frustrating especially when I’ve already lathered on layers of sun screen at the house to save time once I get there. So, there I am sweating and greasy but still confident the trek down will be worthwhile only to hear  the adorable young attendants say there is no room to park. Understanding that I need to be gracious to our summer visitors and that there really isn’t anyway my SUV could ever fit into the one tiny spot open, I make the trek down the road in search of a legal spot to park. Not wanting to come back to a $50 ticket I drive way down the road thinking I could have probably just as easily left the car at home and walked (-:    Ever the optimist though I am excited just to find a spot, drag my chair and bags out and make the 1/2 mile walk down the street. (Alright so maybe it’s only 1000 feet but at my age it feels like a marathon).  So, I round the corner to the entrance and what do I see?

  3. Kelleher Real Estate Goes to the Street Fair!

    As the island’s only GREEN Certified Broker, I thought it might be fun to buy a table at this year’s annual Tisbury Street Fair! While I hadn’t been for years I remembered it as being somewhat of a carnival on steroids.
