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.

A short walk on Monday yielded these results:

edgartown's giant pagoda tree, south water street
South Water Street. The pagoda tree- Edgartown's Giant Pagoda - on the right, was brought to Edgartown from China in 1812 as a seedling by a Captain Thomas Milton. This tree enjoys a degree of fame; one of its offspring graces the Edgartown Public Library's front lawn on North Water Street.

A sure sign of spring are these mooring markers, ready and waiting to be set out into the harbor.

A rare sight: looking at the sky through the ceiling of Edgartown's Memorial Wharf, the top-side of which is under re-construction.
