    Flying Horses are fun to ride

    Try your luck at catching the brass ring and winning a free ride on the oldest working carousel in the U.S., which has been enchanting children and adults for over a hundred years. The 20 hand-carved horses on this official historic landmark have real horsehair manes and tails.

    Colorful Gingerbread Houses are the norm

    Gingerbread houses everywhere!

    The camp meetings of the Methodist Church were ecumenical in spirit and attracted members of most Protestant sects as well as Roman Catholics. By the late 1850s, annual visitors were replacing tents with elaborately decorated carpenter Gothic cottages known as Gingerbread houses.

    Susan on vacation

    Beautiful summer mornings should be spent on one of the porches. Lots of cool places to sit and watch the activity. Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard is a bustling little community. I like being in this kind of area and finding a quiet spot to sit and "people watch".

    The Black Dog

    Everyone around here sports a Black Dog t-shirt. There's a Black Dog general store behind the Steamship Authority harbor in Vineyard Haven. Bill Clinton may or may not have shopped at Black Dog's for a gift for Monica Lewinski.
