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.

The beat goes on, as well, for Clinton Fisher and Steve Kuehne who are Cape Pogue-bound. The question for today is, "Will the scallops still be out there, or did they get blown away?"

Good luck, fishermen.
