Wandering Wednesday – Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard

Hello Everyone! Welcome back for another Wandering Wednesday. Today we don’t go far and stick near home for the holidays. Edgartown downtown is made up mostly of stately captains homes and it likes to really dress up and goes a little color crazy for the season. They have an event the second weekend in December call “Christmas in Edgartown” that includes a parade, a big chowder contest, craft shows and bazaars, crafts for kids, inn tours, special events, and concerts. It’s a fun time that brings people out and gets them in the mood for the holidays.
Let’s start at town hall….

The Whaling Church and Town Clock. This used to be a single light to represent the North Star that guided the wise men to the baby Jesus. The colored lights are a new development. I haven’t decided what my opinion is yet. Some things just shouldn’t be glitzed up. You know what I mean?

I hope you’ve enjoyed our stroll through Edgartown today. Happy Solstice! Now all of us chicken keepers can rejoice at the lengthening of daylight hours each day. Thanks for visiting.

  1. Beautiful! I love the light house! We used to travel a lot and we planned our outings around trips to lighthouses.

  3. Thanks for visiting ladies. Merry Christmas!

    Melodie, The lighthouse was beautifully restored inside a couple of years ago. They give tours in the summer ;)

    Dr. Momi, Sometimes simple is best. I've talked to others that feel the same way around town. Maybe we can get it back next year.

  4. Thank you for sharing the picture of the Vineyard at Christmas time.
    I especially love the Lighthouse because it means a lot to me and my family. We have memorial stones their honoring three of our loved one we lost too young. It looks beautiful all lit up.
    Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
