In the 1960s my grandfather built the small cottage that my family shares on Martha's Vineyard. For reasons unknown to me, he and my grandmother called it The Rookery.
For decades now, my family, including my uncles and cousins, have stayed at the Rookery on our summer vacations.
Over the years, there have been countless pictures of all of us inside the cottage, on the front steps, or on the back porch. But the below picture, taken when the original "The Rookery" sign was still present above the door, is easily my favorite of them all.
My sisters and I posed on the step for a picture before we headed out to the beach. I'm the little one in the middle.
My A-Z of Martha's Vineyard theme is inspired by my book, The Ghosts of Aquinnah, which is set on the island. Click here for all the info on the book.
