Welcome. Edgartown News was born from the simple fact that I have ink and Dektol in my veins and I need to write and photograph more than I need air or food, and from my love for this little town where I grew up and raised my family, the town I have left a few times but can't quite shake for good. Here you will find wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town.

Clare and Irwin, with Stella. Clare is originally from Co. Tyrone, Ireland but has been living in London for twenty years. Clare was more interested in my photographing Stella, her large Irish Setter, but I talked her into letting me photograph her (and her husband, Irwin, whom she beckoned from down the street, on the phone with a business call. "But you're on vacation." "Yeah, I know."). Clare, Irwin and Stella are on the island for five weeks.

I also ran into my Green Avenue neighbors - Justin and Stefanie and their four daughters who are here for the week at the Marchese house: Kaelah, Marabel, Lucy, and Neve. It's been fun having kids in the neighborhood. There are times, between my grandkids and the neighbor children, when my yard looks and sounds like a school yard, with swinging, running, screaming, digging in the dirt; all the things children ought to be doing, somewhat of an aberration among the pristine and perfectly landscaped and mostly child-free Edgartown yards.

Mike is back in town, holding court on Main Street. Tonight's selections included Ring Them Bells (that he learned from me on my porch last week), and Lord, Won't You Buy Me a Mercedes Benz.

  1. I love these posts! Keep them coming.. and we are all looking forward to our week in July - and perhaps some real estate searching. That family of girls have lovely names... and your yard full of kids has more charm than the perfectly hedged, manicured pristine versions that abound in the neighborhood. Your porch sounds like a lovely place..
