Film Soars to the Vineyard, Circa 1957
Vineyard Gazette
Tom Dunlop
October 9, 2013

The film comes from 1957, so the colors look 
 elemental and crayon bright. The music is jouncy and insistent, like something you’d hear in an old-time Friendly’s Restaurant. The men wear neckties and smoke, pretty much no matter where they are or what they’re doing. In spirit, the movie is late-Eisenhower through and through. And so far as the Vineyard is concerned, it’s also a film of importance, offering us our first known motion pictures of the Island shot in color from the sky.

BEACH ACCESS UPDATE: It's a sad day, folks -- we just closed the OSV access at Wasque. The high tides and winds these past few days have done a number on the beach, and portions of the trail are over-washing. The risk of injury (or worse) if the trail collapses are simply too great to keep this open.

We certainly appreciated it while we had it, and can't wait to see what Wasque has in store next! This breathtaking property is nothing if not dramatic and dynamic.

The Oak Bluffs Fishing Pier is now really taking shape. The main decking is being installed and looks great! You can really picture fishermen taking a few casts out there now.
