Hello everyone! Here’s to the last full week of July… Yikes!
After a few trips to Burlington, mornings at the bakery with friends, peak bagging adventures in the Adirondacks, and hours helping build the wood-fired pizza oven in the organic garden, I found myself with just enough time to get ready before driving south to the locale I find myself in now.[caption id="attachment_4241" align="alignnone" width="300"] View from a bike ride to Aquinnah[/caption]
I’m spending 12 weeks of the summer on Martha’s Vineyard as a conservation intern with The Nature Conservancy, working hard to “save the last great places on earth,” while also immersing myself in the sea-level training life. When I’m not training and working full days “Protecting nature and preserving life,” it has been great fun to explore the island on foot and by bike, both alone and with my housemates. Between art fests, farmers’ markets, thrifting, arboretum walks, live music, yoga on boardwalks, scenic beaches, and vistas of the vast, blue ocean, there has been so much to enjoy here.[caption id="attachment_4242" align="alignnone" width="225"] Respect the preserve boundary![/caption]
I’ll be in Vermont for the last few weeks of summer, biking, gardening, throwing the frisbee for my dog, and knocking off some more of the High peaks that I’ve yet to climb.
Looking forward to seeing you all, minus Jack and Nick, in September!
