One final, not-to-be-missed place on the island is the sunset at Menemsha. Menemsha is a small fisherman's village with some of the best fresh seafood on the island. We visitors know it better for the small beach on the harbor, which offers one of the most spectacular sunset views on the island, possibly in the world (although I think Church Point down at SMCM would give it a run for its money, but I may be partial). Even though sunset photos never turn out as spectacular as the even itself, here is one of my favorites (because this young lady was just too completely adorable for words):
One of the coolest things about the Menemsha sunset is that everybody claps for a natural event. So many people come out just to watch something awesome--such simple pleasures abound for those who would seek them. I don't even miss the television one little bit. I think I'm not even going to bother hooking it back up.
I have also uploaded other photos from Martha's Vineyard that did not appear in other posts, including many of program participants and my own master's thesis presentation. Check out the album:
