Today I’m posting from Jawsfest, an amazing event that combines my love of Martha’s Vineyard, my movie geek-ness, and my passion for ocean conservation. There are so many posts to come — about the movie that scared me out of the water for a decade, my favorite childhood vacation spot, and my first time camping — I only have one thing to say: WE’RE GOING TO NEED A BIGGER BLOG.
If that joke goes over your head, please go watch Jaws immediately. You’ll thank me later. Now, onto Photo of the Week candidates, all snapped in rare moments of good weather we’ve had on this otherwise rain-soaked trip…
Rolling sand dunes backing South Beach.
Scenes from the sweet fishing town of Menemsha, where many Jaws scenes were filmed.
A sunbeam bursting through a wooden fence in Edgartown.
Let me know which photo is your favorite, and do a little sun dance for me!
Photo B! I love the timeless look of fishing equipment!
I confess… that’s my favorite too 🙂
I’m going with A this week! And Jawsfest sounds amazing – can’t wait to read more about it 🙂
Oh my gosh, its so much fun! As a fellow animal lover you’d really be into it — they are placing a huge emphasis on ocean conservation and shark preservation.
I love A! Makes me dream!!!
So funny, A is definitely the favorite this week and I almost didn’t put it up! That’s why I love Photo of the Week, I love hearing everyone’s opinion!
Loving them all, but the details in B totally brings me back there…
Aw, isn’t it a magical place? I didn’t know you had been!
A evokes memories of past MV visits. I can smell the air.
It has definitely been fun lining up my scattered childhood memories to what I’m seeing now as an adult. Mostly though I remember the smell of the ocean… that hasn’t changed.
Love the flowers against the lobster traps.
Thanks! That is such a classic New England image to me…
C! Love the sunbeam 🙂
Glad to see a vote for that one! I always love sunbeam pictures but it turns out they are hard to take, this is the first one I’ve taken that was actually a success!
I’m gonna go with A…
The surprising favorite this week!
B. They really give a sense of place. And its over 100 every day here with no breeze and all sun so Im sending some your way!
Everyone’s good vibes must have worked…. Monday and Tuesday were beautiful!
I LOVE A, not only for the composition, but the story it tells of how small but outstanding each one of us is against the vastness of nature
Thanks Gram… that’s a beautiful way to describe it!
