Today I explored the shops in Edgartown and found lots of scrimshaw to drool over and admire. Then we headed out to the lighthouse to see the captain's house & spy my eye on some rooftop widow's walks. I think it's necessary that one day I have a home with one! The day ended with a relaxing pond-side stroll to look for more wampum to make jewelry from. At the pond I met an old man who grew up on the island, we chatted arrowheads & he proudly showed off one he found around his neck and told me he has 1200 more at home! Yes please!
