Monday Morning Links–one day late

  • Michael Miller reviews Stephen Elliot’s new book at the Fanzine–I’m dying to read it.  (The Fanzine)
  • It’s August and all those tomato plants you’ve been watching all summer are finally bearing fruit.  Preserve some for the winter with this pickling recipe from Home and Oats.  (Home and Oats)
  • I never get tired of ogling the baroque beauty of Bornay’s flowers, ribbons, and photographs.  I’m especially enamored by the colors of the petals in the aisle in this post. (Flowers by Bornay)
  • Do you kiss your iPhone goodnight too?  Do you know six-year-olds with their own iTunes account? (NY Times)
  • New England’s stuffiness is not something I generally lust over, but I wish I could be magically transported to this Cape Cod brunch.  (A Hawk From A Handsaw)

Martha’s Vineyard, Day Two

Sun came out today.  It was nice.  Went for a walk on the beach.

beach

The fog was still so thick you couldn’t see 100 yards down the beach, even with the sun out at 4pm.  The tiny dot in the distance is the Gay Head lighthouse.

starfish

There were lots of starfish on the beach.  I threw a bunch back in the water.

wampum

We collected wampum.

It got overcast on the way back.  The cliffs above the beach are streaked with deep red clay.  Access is restricted to tribal members by federal law.

Martha’s Vineyard, Day One

69˚ and cloudy, but great clam chowder

Since I’m a bit flu-ish and the weather is bad I didn’t make it more than about thirty yards from the house, but I discovered some interesting things nonetheless.

viney trunk

The visual effect of the vine along this trunk is beautiful, but the vine itself looks to be parasitic–I can’t imagine an oak tree being very happy to have vines wrapped around it, but maybe I’m wrong.
