Weekly Specials at the Maritime Market - 11/15


Good morning Fellow Islanders! It's 42 degrees on the front porch this morning, and the pre-dawn skies are starry, clear & cool, with a chilly breeze rustling the nearby palms, and the faint glow of twilight leaking over the eastern horizon. It's been a quiet week on the island, save for the mass of contractors scurrying about - digging trenches, building homes, and completing the various construction and cabling projects going on around the island. Otherwise, the beaches are desolate, ... more

Sunday Specials at the Maritime Market - 11/12


Good morning Fellow Islanders! It's a 48 degrees on the front porch this morning, and a light breeze is sweeping over the pre-dawn landscape - dark, with overcast skies, quiet, and very peaceful. As the dawn breaks, look for cloudy skies to slowly give way to sunshine this afternoon as we warm to the mid 60's, with light northeasterly breezes, and a perfect day to hit the links or cast a few lures into the surf (on the rising tide:). We'll cool to the mid 50's overnight, with a slight c... more

Saturday Specials at the Maritime Market - 11/11


Good morning Fellow Islanders! It's a chilly 38 degrees on the front porch this morning, with crystal clear starry skies and a brisk north wind sweeping over the dunes. The island is very quiet this weekend, save for a large wedding party that arrived yesterday. We'll see folks trickling back to the island beginning next weekend for Thanksgiving, and after that - our slowest weeks of the year, until Christmas & New Years. Today we'll warm to the mid 50's, with sunny skies and blustery w... more
