Touring around downtown Edgartown it is hard to miss the nearly complete renovation of 37 Cooke St, which is known to be one of the oldest homes on Martha's Vineyard. When renovations began last fall, the @vineyardgazette article about the property said: "Historical accounts about the age of the home are conflicting. Town records list the house as built in 1680. Other accounts indicate the house, or additions to it, were built as late as 1730." And, "The house was originally located at Farm Neck. In the mid-1800s it was moved to Cooke street, a distance of more than four miles, by “stalwart men with the help of strong oxen and good Jamaica rum,” according one historic account. One account dates the move to 1822, another to 1831." Cool to see new life brought to this classic old home in downtown Edgartown.

Beautiful day for a walk at Polly Hill Arboretum. #marthasvineyard #marthasvineyardlife #capecodlife #westtisbury #cherryblossoms

They are back! Got lucky yesterday on the Vineyard with the first schoolie stripers of the season. Fish were bright, healthy looking, and covered in sea lice. 🎣✌🏻😊

Two kidney bean sized hummingbird eggs (Mentos en-croute). While they cannot walk or hop, they really know how to hover! They should be back on the Vineyard in a few months. #marthasvineyardlife #hummingbird #nests #hoverdonthop Repost @ U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
