Trad in Edgartown! My second annual Vineyard Autumn Session, held at Plantingfield Way. Great-Granny Shurtleff would be pleased.
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.

I do wish I had more time to mess around with this blog (soon, I hope). For today, I turn these pages over to my favorite guest-blogger, my late and great mother, with a photo from the archives, South Beach, circa 1987.
Autumn Beach by Alison Boylston Piazza
This is the best time, the quiet and good time,
The searching-for-sea-glass and gathering-wood time.
On clean swept sand, an occasional trace
Of sandpiper's footprints, as fragile as lace.
Limpid blue water and tranquil blue sky,
Stillness pierced only by seagull's shrill cry -
This is the best time, this golden fall,
This is the very best season of all.
