A Simply Soaps update, sadly Simply Soaps has closed its doors. The owner, Beth Serusa is focusing on her health.   When Beth Smith (now Serusa) was a little girl growing up on Green Avenue in Edagrtown, she would watch her neighbor, Army Jackson make her own cold-process soap. Things were a little different back then. […]


OK. Admit it. You watched The Bachelor last season. I know I did, mostly because Renee Oteri was a contestant, who I knew when she worked on Martha’s Vineyard at Rosbeck Builders. The last time I saw Renee outside of Facebook, was about six years ago. She was always very friendly and very beautiful. I […]


Almost everyone traveling to Martha’s Vineyard has had to wait for the ferry in Woods Hole for an extended period of time. Some people stay in their cars but a number of people used to head to the Leeside to pass the time with a beverage, maybe a bite to eat, and most likely with […]

Living on Martha’s Vineyard, we sometimes take the beauty that surrounds us daily for granted. Earth Day is a good time to stop and take a moment to not only help, but also enjoy nature, whether it’s the park down the block or one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our team at Point […]

The Lampost has undergone some serious changes, and people are pretty excited about it. You may remember, we took a mid-renovation On Point Blog peek about a month […]

So many places open their doors for the beginning of the 2014 season. Here’s a list to help you plan your weekly excursions. Edgartown The Atlantic Fish & Chop House is already open, though […]


I know I keep saying this but Martha’s Vineyard is bursting at the seams with amazing, talented people. Marnely Rodriguez-Murray has definitely made the list. I have been following her food blog, Cooking with Books, for quite some time now. One of her latest recipes, Blackberry Balsamic Grilled Cheese Sandwich was the last straw. I had to meet […]
