Lisa has a great story about how she came to live on Martha’s Vineyard, and it goes back to her grandparents, born in 1900, and vacationing on the island since 1918. “I started coming in 1967 when I was three. My folks came and we rented a cottage by the old Lobster Hatchery…I was the fifth of six kids and we all swam in the Lagoon and paddled a now-very-old canoe over to the Portside Dairy Maid for ice cream…I visited my grandparents every holiday I could. I would look out their back yard at a spectacular “family” oak tree and say, ‘I’m going to get married under that tree.’ After college, I traveled the world; the Island pulled me back every spring. I found the love of my life at the fishing derby, and in 2007, Brendan and I were married underneath the grand old oak. My grandparents were there in spirit.” [read the more complete version here]
