Three Views of Menemsha


We're at the southern overlook of Menemsha Great Pond, which is on the road from Chilmark to Aquinnah (the Wampanoag Tribe renamed it from Gay Head in a 1998 election). The view is to the north, with Menemsha off to the right horizon.

Here we're on the jetty on the Lobsterville (west) side of Menemsha inlet. The orange-roofed building is part of the US Coast Guard station where the search for JFK Jr's plane was headquartered.


Another view with Menemsha in the background. There's no bridge over the inlet. There's a bike ferry though, and one of James Taylor's brothers takes day-sailors to Cuttyhunk from here on a catamaran. We drove all the way around past the south overlook again to get to Menemsha for sunset and were treated to dinner at Menemsha's landmark Homeport Restaurant by our guests, Sandy and Pete (Sandy is Ruth's co-worker).

To Us at ease.
