Green salads are one of my favorite places to highlight my “instant” pickles, especially radishes since they look so pretty with the green.

Notes from the Tackle Room: War and Wasque

Seventy years ago this August, V-J Day set up a string of events that led me to the Vineyard and altered my life forever. When victory was announced, my mother made plans to visit her parents, who were vacationing at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown, and we set out the next day, taking the Cape Codder train from Grand Central Station in New York to Woods Hole, where we would board the Vineyard ferry. The streets of New York were littered with confetti and other leftovers from the uproarious victory celebration, and the train crew was still celebrating.

Oceanography: You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Permit

Forty years ago Jaws put the Vineyard (masquerading as an island called Amity) and white sharks on the same Hollywood map. The celluloid great white shark that terrorized beachgoers gave sharks a bad rap, and swimmers reason for pause, for years. But interest in real sharks, especially the whites – the official name for the species does not include the “great” – has been on the rise in recent years, and today would-be Quints and Brodys would need more than a bigger boat before chumming the water for a shark. They’d need a permit.

From the Editor

You wouldn’t know it from a trip through Five Corners in Vineyard Haven, or the Triangle in Edgartown, but most Americans don’t take the time off they deserve. It’s not just hard-working laborers who are not permitted paid vacations by their Scroogian overlords, either, though that’s a huge problem and injustice: one in four Americans does not get a single paid vacation day. According to the U.S. Travel Association, an industry group, Americans don’t take advantage of 429 million paid vacation days every year.
