down by the seashore.

one of my very favorite places on earth is martha’s vineyard, a relatively small and woodsy island off the north eastern coast. i love taking the ferry there and renting a bicycle for the week and just cruising into town and to the beaches, and generally just loafing and basking in the sunshine, or napping in the cool fog. martha’s vineyard is almost a bit like being at a lake house – it’s got that east coast vibe with woods and seagrass, much different than the california coastline, but equally as stunning. it’s just, for me, a bit more cozy and calm.

i’ve rented some pretty cute seaside cottages there, so today, i though a make-believe journey to the vineyard would be a nice escape. imagine a lazy day at the beach, followed by a nice outdoor shower, a nap on fresh clean white sheets and ending the evening with a lobster dinner with a nice chardonnay. ready? set? let’s go.

  1. The United States has the most beautiful places on earth. I would put this one at the top ten! I would so enjoy experiencing this place.

  2. All of these photographs are just so amazing. A friend took a trip there recently and after I saw her photographs, I wanted nothing more than to get in my car and drive there. As is, I think I’m going to plan a nice little weekend getaway up there — in February (I love the slow seasons).

  3. Wow! Beautiful. What wonderful images to end my day with. It was a rainy and stormy day in more that one sense and now I’m going to think about these wonderful images as I try and fall asleep and remember that there is so much beauty in the world and what is really imoportant. Thanks for a great post.

  4. beautiful photos. my dad and stepmother went to marthas vineyard years ago and ive wanted to go ever since! these photos make me want to start planning now :)

  5. Aww, My husband and I got engaged at the Edgartown Lighthouse! We go back as often as we can. We can see Gay Head on a clear day from our backyard where we summer every year!! Thanks for stirring up the memories!

  6. This is so beautiful! Martha’s Vineyard is on my to go-list since the very first moment I saw a photo shoot in a magazine. And this post makes me wanna pack and go!

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful images!

  7. Oh my goodness! My heart literally skipped a beat when the images loaded. Gorgeous! I have never been to Martha’s Vineyard but I imagine it would be just like this, though I really cannot complain because visiting the Baltic Sea has a similar affect on me.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  8. I’ve always adored attic bedrooms. They’re so cozy and romantic. A classic scene from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers shows the women dancing around in their attic bedroom… I grew up with that movie, so you can understand my affection for the lovely attic bedroom you showed here. The seashells were a delight for the eyes as well. Thanks for the post!
