Early Spring in Martha’s Vineyard

I love a quick getaway. A 24 hour escape . . . new sights, new sounds and new surroundings. Just enough time to enjoy a break in the routine of daily life, yet no real planning or packing is needed. Grab some essentials, my camera, and I am ready to go. Let the exploration begin . . .

Martha’s Vineyard is a real treat. Known for its endless beautiful beaches, charming streets to stroll, and picturesque scenery wherever you look, there is no surprise it is a hot spot during the warmer months. Every photo taken could become a postcard.mv - harbor

Sure, sometimes hustle and bustle of crowds can be fun. However, I generally do prefer more quite times, such as early Spring. A nature girl at heart, having the beaches to myself gives me time to reconnect and truly enjoy the beauty that is surrounding me without any distractions.mv - beach

Beaches are always great places to explore . . . and they are so different wherever you go. On Martha’s Vineyard, I loved the colorful rocks on the fine sand. I also loved how the tall beach grass would blow in the chilly March wind.

Along this grassy shore, I discovered summer boats stored for winter in all shapes, sizes . . . mv - big boat

and colors. Sure the day may have been gray, but I surely didn’t notice.

In fact, on gray days I feel like I am more likely to see all the hidden colors and unique shapes around me. They seem to pop out more against the neutral background and make for some interesting shots.

And these photos take on a classic and timeless feel.

I woke up the next morning refreshed and ready for whatever life would bring my way. Before boarding my ferry home, I was presented with the most lovely sunrise. A subtle blend of pastel colors that made it almost impossible to tell where the ocean met the sky.

This is what it’s all about . . . A simple getaway, with entrancing moments, in a truly most delightful place. Just enjoying life and enjoying the view.
