Could June be the most beautiful month on the Vineyard?

The Island landscape has a way of capturing the heart of anyone who spends time walking through the fields of daisies, biking through down-Island downtowns, or sitting on a shoreline for some bird watching. The weather is mild, the sun is shining, and the roads are still not filled to summer's capacity. Every place has a hidden story.

If you talk to a geologist, you'll hear that the Island is an attraction for the story it tells in the sand, the cliffs and along the moraine. If you speak to a bird enthusiast or a horticulturist, you'll find that they have their own reasons for being drawn to the countryside. The June landscape conjures up myriad reasons for earning the affection it gets from one summer to the next.
