The Polar Bear Swim

@The Inkwell

7:30am Tuesday, July 24 - Sunday, July 29th



To meet the Polar Bears is to encounter a windfall of sincerity, buoyant hospitality and plain old fun. In most cases such encounters are rare on a beach, but not in Oak Bluffs. It is a great informal institution that has survived for over 60 years without a constitution, bylaws, officers or any formal organizational structure other than the imperative of caring friendships.

This early morning swim is not only invigorating, but healthy.

Come to the sea at 7:30 in the morning for this ritual swim in the waters between the Island Queen and the Steamship Authority.

All Polar Bears are not the same. There are three types of Bears that meet at 7:30 in the morning. There are the swimming bears, the non-swimming bears or bear-watchers and talkers, and the exercise bears, started by Ruth Bonaparte. They form a friendship circle in the water to work out. All are swimmingly friendly, cordial, very smart, and consider themselves totally non-elitist. Though many are accomplished there are no pedigree discussions here. They come to relax, reflect and renew. This is the old Martha's Vineyard in case you thought it no longer existed and they take their history and legacy seriously. As Bear Eleanor Hughes said, "We have our own chamber of commerce. If you want to know what's going on socially, where to eat, shop, find entertainment, or meet new people - come here. They are comrades and friends and everyone is welcome." The Polar Bears begin their season every July Fourth with a prayer for continued friendship, for friends who are infirm, deceased, or need a special thought. Evelyn Tyner said the prayer for years. Now her daughter Betsy Stewart, a minister, prays. After prayer, they sing the 1985 musical hit made famous by Dionne Warwick, That's What Friends Are For. They have two mottos: "You have to spread your wings in order to find out how high you can fly," and "I am the source of my joy and infinite possibilities." Perhaps it is this strong belief system underpinning a "can-do" philosophy that has allowed the Polar Bears to survive all these years.

I saw them in the context of shared history repeating itself over time. Then there was this connection to water and its relevance in the biblical sense of water as a cleanser, rejuvenator and healer in the African American baptismal experience. It surfaced as the tie that binds, underpinned by a conviction in the value of inclusiveness that expands the boundaries of diversity, transcends physical condition, color, race or belief - transforming the microcosmic reality of what America might be.

Island Alpaca


Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Island Alpaca Company of Martha's Vineyard began in 2004 with the purchase of 19 acres of land and an antique post-and-beam barn that once stood in Export PA. Over the next two years, the barn was assembled, pastures were cleared, and fencing installed. The original purchase of eight alpacas in 2004 had grown to a starter herd of 31, which moved into the barn in 2006. Today, Island Alpaca has a select herd of over 50 colorful Huacaya alpaca. Island Alpaca Farm is located in Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard. We offer alpaca breeding, alpaca sales, year-round, or winter alpaca boarding (agisting), educational workshops for both children and adults, and continuing customer support. Island Alpaca Farm is perfectly sized to offer personalized service and attention, along with a fine selection of breeding stock, both herd sires and junior herd sires as well as pet/fiber quality alpaca.

$5 pp admission from May 1 to October 31 annually

The Flying Horses Carousel

The Flying Carousel is the nation’s oldest platform carousel and has been designated by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a national landmark. Constructed in 1876 by Charles Dare, it is one of only two Dare carousels still in existence. Originally operated as a Coney Island, NY amusement, it was moved to Oak Bluffs in 1884, where it has lived in its red barn, delighting generations of Island residents and visitors ever since.

  2. http://www.vineyardtransit.com/pages/vta_schedule/one_day

From Ocean Park take the Route 9 on the hour to the Airport and transfer to the Route 6 at :25 past the hour. Upon arrival at the Grange Hall, disembark and walk next door to the Town Hall and catch the Route 4 at :40 past for Menemsha.

To return from Menemsha, take the Route 4 at :01 past the hour (either 8:01pm or 9:01pm) to the West Tisbury Town Hall and transfer to a Route 6 at :38 past the hour. At the Airport, transfer to the Route 7 for Ocean Park at :55 past the hour.

The roundtrip fare for each person would be $10.00, so I suggest buying a One Day Pass for $8 – this allows for unlimited travel on all routes for the day and saves $2 per person.

What a relaxing way to end the day! THIS IS MUST SEE! You can grab a bite to eat from Menemsha Market which has the best lobster rolls on the island! The food from Larsens' is even better! Just be sure to bring wine if you want to have some because you can't buy it there.The kids play on the beach and the adults wait for sunset. This is a favorite beach on the island to watch the sunset. The water is calm and you can find marine life near the shore line. It's a great place to watch the sunset with the adoring crowd.

Just to note the beach each is rocky and not the greatest swimming beach, however is fun for kids to explore to catch crabs and small fish with their nets. The sunsets are breath taking .

Come very early when coming over to see the sunset. There is limited parking, and very often it is impossible to find a parking spot. The "sunset crowd" begins to gather a good 2 hours before the sunset. BUT - there's also a 2 hr time limit on parking in the adjacent lot, until around 6 or 8 pm. (sorry, I don't exactly remember). The police DO watch and ticket cars! There are also remote parking lots. The best choice - take the bus there. You can get there from almost anywhere on island, and all-day bus pass (use as many times and distances as you like) costs only $8, and is much cheaper than a parking ticket!

You can get there by car or bus... Cabs travel to there but it may cost you $50... and the bus is more entertaining and serves as an informal tour guide. :) The cuisine is fresh out of the water shellfish, lobsters, clams, oysters etc... Bringing your own alcohol is welcomed and recommended as they only sell water there..most families set up a picnic area on the beach and eat dinner and play board games until the sunsets... Very relaxing and beautiful :)

The crowd usually applauds and sings America The Beautiful

Public restroom are near by and near by shops have take out.

The sunset is awesome and it's the best place to appreciate God's glory! See ya there!
