The seniors enjoyed a blissful couple of sunny, breezy days on Martha’s Vineyard. They visited the cliffs and lighthouse at Aquinnah, learning about the cultural and geological history of a unique part of the island that is the reservation for the Aquinnah Wampanoag, who have lived on the island for over 10,000 years. A stop at Menemsha Beach for swimming, rock-skipping, buttery lobster rolls and fresh oysters followed. The group capped off the sightseeing with an afternoon in Oak Bluffs, an area of the island that also holds interesting history. Oak Bluffs saw a great deal of activity during the Transatlantic slave trade, and later became both a home for formerly enslaved peoples, as well as the only town on the island to offer accommodations to visitors of color until the 1960s. We ended our day with a group potluck, all gathered on the porch of one of our rooms.
