Ok....I've finally been able to do more than just shop at the local yarn shop in Vineyard Haven....finally some knit nights. Alix is a groovy gal who loves knitting, loves the island and makes a great host in her small but beautifully stocked store. All the gals I've met, of all ages, have been kind, welcoming, funny and beautiful knitters. I'm lucky to have met them and enjoy their company.

Chesca's is another restaurant I like to check out when on the island. The food is good, the atmosphere is relaxed and fun and the staff is always friendly.
My start was of course....yes....a dirty martini...yum. We tried the house made gnocchi, hot Gorgonzola dip with pancetta and Maine shrimp and the Anjou pear salad. Now the gnocchi is a new one for me and an absolute do over....the dip and salad, well those are favourites of ours.
Another lovely meal.

Twinleaf pattern as soon as I saw it and am now knitting the first of two I purchased yarn for...crazy I know, but it had to be done. Lovely pattern and beautiful meadow yarn by The Fiber Company. Supporting local shops don't you know...again.

L'etoile. It's a small place in the lower level of a house on Water Street that packs a huge punch with flavor. I am fortunate that they opened for the season during my visit...wonderful to sit at a familiar table often shared with friends to enjoy a lovely meal with family.
Of course...this wonderful and memorable meal was accompanied with stimulating and exciting conversation, much laughter, plenty of visiting with our neighbors and most of all....a pace that evoked peace and contentment. Mmmmmmm.......
