Although we certainly enjoyed our rainy day walk around Edgartown, we were eager to have some fun in the sun.
Martha’s Vineyard has a very good transit system that runs between all of the towns. For boaters, this makes the island even better. As seniors, we purchased a 3-day pass for $10. Not bad at all.
We took the bus out to West Tisbury for the Vineyard Artisan Festival, held every Thursday throughout the summer at the Grange Hall. The Artisan Festivals are the only weekly juried art show where the people can browse, shop and meet the artists and crafts people. Over 70 artisans show and demonstrate their work in weaving, fine furniture, pottery, stained glass, oil paintings, pastels, mixed media, sculpture, wampum jewelry, quilts, clothing, sea glass windows, handmade books and more.

A closer look in the tents – the creativity of the many artisans is amazing.
