Red visited the Menemsha Inn & Cottages for a few days to get a first hand experience of the Martha's Vineyard lifestyle. While getting plenty of rest and relaxation, Red also got in plenty of exercise by using the gym on site and a bike to get around the Menemsha area. It was only later that evening Red discovered how out of shape she was! (But not to worry! An outdoor shower on a beautiful day and a soft fluffy white towel can work wonders on a chair). Red had such a wonderful time visiting the Island of Martha's Vineyard and would love to go back soon!
Tim Little of Cape Night Photography kidnapped the Red Chair last night (from the Woods Hole Inn) and took it on a moonlit romp all over the Upper Cape! If you have not yet experienced Tim's incredible night shooting, I highly recommend you check out his website here. In the meantime, here is one tantalizing image from his four hours in the freezing cold with the Red Chair. Wow! He says he was planning on a hour but the chair inspired him to shoot and shoot in the chilly night air. His fingers are still thawing, and we look forward to sharing more of the night with you as he sends it along...
The little Red Chair continues to lead an interesting life!
The Red Chair returned to Woods Hole a few days ago, and low and behold it snowed as if on cue. Snow is rare here, because we are so surrounded by the warm Gulf Stream waters, but last night we got a nice dusting and here is a quick photo essay of a Woods Hole walk in the snow.
Pie in the Sky is right next door to the Woods Hole Inn, so of course the Red Chair enjoyed a hot coffee and freshly baked pastry before heading out in the cold...
Happy children were sledding on the golf course and the Red Chair could hear their squeals of delight.
With the wind blowing hard from the north, the Red Chair was knocked over flat by the gusts while this picture was taken. Brrr....
Not too many fishermen out today.
From the porch of Crowell House (a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute aka WHOI building) you can see across the village green with the peaked roof of the Woods Hole Inn in the distance.
How many of you have heard of the Stockbridge family named Ffrench that make these wonderful silk-screened calendars every year? Well, I have long been a fan of these calendars, and have them always hanging in my front hall to delight me with their original art work. So imagine my shock this month when I turned over from February and found this! If there ever was a sign that now was the time to put the effort into my red chair travels project it was NOW! So, with out further adieu...the Red Chair begins it's Cape Cod trip in the month of March 2012. How very fitting.
