Yesterday Mary and I went to Edgartown on the island of Martha’s Vineyard under cloudy skies and a cool 62 degrees. It’s the largest town on the island (population-wise) with a 2000 census of 3,779 and the county seat of Duke County. It was one of the leading whaling ports in the 1800’s. It was also widely filmed during the making of the movie Jaws in 1974.
Here’s a few photos…

After completing our visit to Edgartown, we took the ferry to Chappaquiddick Island. See tomorrow’s blog entry!
