Behind the Bookstore is one of Megan Weeks’ go-to spots on a early Vineyard morning. —Lily Cowper

My Perfect Day ingredients are sun (-rise, -shine, -set), saltwater, and sand, all with people I love. It begins with an early morning latte at home, and then paddleboarding into Edgartown for breakfast at Behind the Bookstore or Rosewater. Then a long beach walk and swim, lazy conversation, and a good book. The cap to my perfect Martha’s Vineyard day is the standing weekly tradition of a sunset potluck beach picnic friends began years ago. The same core group meets every Tuesday night at our sacred spot, where we spread out blankets, bottles of wine, and our contributions to the evening’s perfection.
