Now matter how many times we visit Martha's Vineyard, we always find new things to do, like our hike last week through Menemsha Hill Reservation.
Known as the jewel of Martha's Vineyard, Menemsha Hills Reservation is home to Prospect Hill, the second highest peak on the island.
Trails loop around low lying wetlands, home to red maple, cinquefoil, beech and black cherry trees, before giving way to brushy bushes and grasses.
The longest trail guided us to a remote beach.
Here cool breezes blow from Vineyard Sound and a path leads down to the rocky beach below with commanding views of Menemsha Village and the Elizabeth Islands.
On a picture perfect June morning, we truly enjoyed our 3-mile hike.
And even though John and I have gone to the island together almost every year for the past 28 years, we never grow tired of it.
