The Island

I'm waiting in Woods Hole for a ferry to Martha's Vineyard, where I'm spending the weekend with friends. To the best of my recollection, I've never been to Martha's Vineyard before, although once I almost spent the day there with my lab group.

The drive down took us past a town I used to visit a lot when I was in college, because I dated someone from there.

Also, I'm going to be back in this area again in just a few weeks. At one point during the drive, we were mere blocks away from the Falmouth Public Library, where I'm speaking in two weeks on an authors panel. I was very tempted to visit the library this morning and say hello to the reference librarian organizing the program.

Have a good weekend, everyone!
