Photographer Alison Shaw's work is the story opener for Ferry Tales in Design New England magazine (May | June issue shown below). In this photograph, Edgartown emerges like a summer dream in the wee hours of morning as seen from the shores of Chappy.

Ferry facts: The two ferries plying a distance of 527 feet of water between the islands of Chappaquiddick and Martha's Vineyard are named On Time II and On Time III. In season, the ferry line streams up Daggett Street from Dock Street, sometimes jumping North Water Street to Simpson's Lane,  If it sounds confusing, it can be — the official site of the Chappy Ferry notes, in ALL CAPS, that google maps has it wrong. So goes navigation.

But if you keep your eyes on the water and follow your inner compass, you're certain to find a memorable view. And if you want to see more of Alison Shaw's stunning photographs, we have a collection on permanent rotation at The Granary Gallery. No ferry ticket required!
