Martha's Vineyard Memories

I have so many memories to write about and so many photos I could post! It's hard to narrow it down but I'll try. This post is about a walk we took around the park and area near the beach at Oak Bluffs.

I would live in any one of these homes. Each one was beautiful and unique. This one had a lovely garden out front.

I am not that fond of yellow but I don't mind it on this home. Maybe the green helps.

The flowers were unbelievable.

We turned the corner and there was this beautiful gate, yard, and garden.

A pagoda in the yard! Gorgeous!

And the front of the house was not too shabby either. Wow, was all I could say.

Looks like they're having a party. He's setting up the bar. How can I get myself invited?
I would love to sit on this porch all night.

We later found out from our innkeeper that this is the home of Peter Norton of Norton Anti Virus fame. And yes that is him in the photo.

The home was destroyed by fire and rebuilt to it's original grandeur.

And here was my second favorite, it's called Cinderella Cottage. Our innkeeper told us that this is the ex Mrs Norton's home.

Again, lovely landscaping.

And very ornate. I love that bump out, don't you?

This blue and white home also bordered the park.

Another pretty house overlooking the park.

I love weathervanes and this one was especially decorative and perfect for it's location overlooking the Atlantic at Oak Bluffs.

This is the first in a series of posts about my mini vacation. Please come back and travel to the Vineyard with me.


Such beautiful Victorians... wow! And that is so cool you saw Mr. "Norton Anti-Virus"!

Can't wait to see more :)
