With 2009 coming to an end my wife asked me to go through some photos from the past year, as she was having calendars made. These were not Christmas gifts, just something fun to make and pass on to friends. After looking through some old pictures and doing some organizing, I set aside the photos from 2009 that I like the most.
In February we spent some time on Martha’s Vineyard. While there I had the opportunity to hike the Menemsha Hills and visit Aquinnah, formerly Gay Head at the southern tip of the island.
The Light at Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard
It was a beautiful, cold February day when Chris and I wandered around Aquinnah. There aren’t very many people there at that time of year, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
The shoreline at the foot of the Menemsha Hills reminded me of Maine. As I remember the day it was cold, but by February standards pleasant. We stopped and ate our sandwiches before wandering out onto the rocky beach. Chris found a few broken lobster traps washed up on the rocks.
