Fall is here and the leaves are starting to show it

Here we are once again visiting our Vineyard land holdings. Waskosim's Rock is up on the hill to the right. I love coming here. It is always different. It is always the same.

Here's a video riding up to what may be the real Waskosim's Rock. The Martha's Vineyard Land Bank implies that the very big split rock is Waskosim's, but Ashley Hunter, who know a lot of Vineyard stuff thinks it is the one in the video.

Here is another video from my IPhone of riding through the fields at Waskosim's Rock just before sunset.

Wequobsque Cliffs looking East toward Edgartown

Getting to the South Shore is a nice way to end my ride. It sort of completes a cycle where I ride to the highest point on the island then down to the water on the north shore (two times today at the Brickyard and Menemsha) then check out the south shore before going back home.

si which picture do you like better?

The Swordfish Harpooner Sculpture at Menemsha

I do love this sculpture even if I made it myself. It is one of the things I have done in my life that I feel proud of.

Captain Flanders House Field with Horses

Horses sure are a lot prettier to look at than mountain bikes, but require making a lot more hay to keep them going. I do appreciate being able to see them, especially in such a beautiful setting.

Looking west with Gay Head in the distance

Great clouds this time of year. It almost looks like a nuclear explosion.

The Chimney at the Brickyard

If you look closely you can see the osprey nest on the top. Back when I was a kid the chimney was a heck of a lot taller. Does anyone know how tall it was originally?

Nice trails. I am lost to the world.

Marianne and I take a CPR class from the Red Cross

Marianne Doing CPR and Rescue Breathing on a dummy. Hopefully we will never have to use these skills, but if they are needed it is sure good to know them.
