Ideal Setting at Martha’s Vineyard

Edgartown Lighthouse

A Festive look at Edgartown Lighthouse.

According to the sign, the Edgartown Lighthouse was a popular place for weddings. It was easy to imagine wedded bliss in this platonic setting with flowers in full bloom.

Edgartown Lighthouse is located in a plush resort town. I had passed by restaurants, art galleries, churches, houses, and resort hotels on my way to the lighthouse in this idyllic and picturesque town. Boats lined the ocean and people strolled along the shore.

Edgartown was my first stop of the day. I had read that Florida lighthouses were tall because the land was near sea level. Still I was struck by the contrasts between the tall Florida lighthouses and this one
short one.

Since the lighthouse was closed, I rapidly began sketching. Three more lighthouses to go in one day!
