A magical spot

Menemsha, on the western coast of Martha’s Vineyard, is an absolute delight. Went by 2 busses, through wonderful countryside, chatting to locals and other boaters on the way.
 It is so picturesque and quaint. 

It has been a commercial fishing village since the late 1600 s and still has a working fleet with a couple of fish markets and a wholesalers. 
Menemsha was once known for harpoon-caught swordfish.
 A large, bronze statue near the harbour entrance commemorates the harpoon sword fishing and its fishermen.
