Mug of the Month - MV Sharks

What is summer without baseball? Great way to see baseball on the Vineyard is to take in a Sharks game! The MV mug museum went to their first "Sharks" game tonight - beautiful weather and great crowd. This is a highly recommended addition to summer activities on the island. Even better the menu includes coffee and mugs!

Mug of the Month - Steamship Authority

It's an island so we could not get there without them. It's a new year and time to start booking the ferry tickets, so January mug is the Steamship Authority.

Personally I will always miss the Islander and many thanks to all of the personnel who get us back and forth so safely.
