Welcome. Edgartown News was born from the simple fact that I have ink and Dektol in my veins and I need to write and photograph more than I need air or food, and from my love for this little town where I grew up and raised my family, the town I have left a few times but can't quite shake for good. Here you will find wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town: my home town.

My favorite boat in the harbor, hands down, is the 56-foot classic wooden yawl Magic Carpet. Seeing the Magic Carpet glide through the harbor - silently, gracefully, sails filling the sky - is nothing short of, well, magic. The Magic Carpet is owned and operated by Captains Todd Bassett (another whose childhood on this harbor ultimately translated into a great life) and Lee Taylor, who have been sailing her out of Edgartown for the past sixteen summers. What a life - and what a wonderful addition to our harbor and to our town.
