Tomorrow I’m taking the ferry from Wood’s Hole to the Martha’s Vineyard. Like most little jaunts these days, the day trip is for an assignment. Last summer I went to Martha’s Vineyard for the first time. (Still haven’t been to Nantucket.) Brooke at the Globe magazine (who’s last day was Friday – I miss you Brooke!) asked me to write a piece (“Everything Is Illuminated”) about a guest house built by Hutker Architects. The homeowners needed extra space so their kids could visit with their families. Although it lacks the main house’s spectacular view of the Aquinnah Lighthouse, it’s a great space, with lots of Shaker wood cabinetry, Mission furniture, a big stone fireplace, and a pathway that leads up, over the house and down again on the other (water) side.
