Took this photo Somewhere near #cuttyhunk - One of the Elizabeth Islands between Buzzard Bay and Martha Vineyard Sound. More about these islands in an old NYT article by BARBARA LAZEAR ASCHER“ Nashawena, #Naushon , #Penikese and #Pasque. #Nonamesset , #Weepeckets , and of course #Cuttyhunk. Not an old camp song, just music to a sailor's ears. Stretching across Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound in Massachusetts, these islands discovered by the early 17th-century English explorer Gosnold and, local legend has it, named for his young daughter (hence their collective name, the Elizabeth Islands) provide some of the world's most satisfying harbors.”
