Last Saturday, a friend and I took a boat over to Oak Bluffs. We had tickets to go to The Moth on Martha’s Vineyard, which I describe at the end of this post. Before the evening show, we walked around the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting neighborhood and I took some photos of the perfectly charming little cottages. See a post about last year’s visit here. The purpose of our visit to Oak Bluffs was to attend an evening of storytelling presented by The Moth radio program. If your local NPR station airs The Moth, you know how inspiring and moving the stories can be. Last summer, Martha’s Vineyard writer, Cynthia Riggs told a most compelling story that has by now been heard all over the world. It is worth hearing her tale, so click the link on her name. She returned this year and gave an update of her adventure to a cheering crowd of 1700. Here’s the inside of the Tabernacle while we were waiting for the storytelling performances to begin. It was quite an evening!
Oh how wonderful. I’d be wanting to move there. Thanks for posting this Salley. have a good one.
Oh Salley, those cottages are like little dolls houses!
I have never seen such an idyllic place, such pretty houses, you could not help but be happy and content living here.
I have now listened to some of the stories on The Moth.What lovely stories!!!Thank you.
Worked near Vineyard Haven nearly 50 years ago (gulp!) my sophmore year summer.
I remember a special evening in Oak Bluffs with the cottages around the camp ground all illuminated with candle lanterns. Magical and charming. (and probably very dangerous).
Lovely to see these charming cottages again.
Loved seeing these adorable cottages!!! Thank you, Salley!
