Hey, Janzee, I've been away from the blog for a while too, except for brief periods when the location guessing games are afoot, and am just now getting back to them. We did buy a house at Serenbe but are not ready to move yet so we've rented it out. We still get all of the Serenbe announcements as we are on the mailing list, and the community seems to be flourishing. There will even be an Atlanta Designer Showhouse tour there in September, and I am hoping to go.

Our other Dalmatian (my sweet Diamond's best friend -- we adopted them together) is old now and suffering from serious arthritis, so my travel opportunities are rare, but I think we can manage to get someone to watch her for a day so my husband and I can get to Serenbe! So how is life in Vegas?

I'll bet the winner of the Martha's Vineyard Dream Home will be interested to know all about the best eats on the island. Fortunately, Edible Vineyard, a quarterly magazine, can give you all the local info:

Oysters are a local specialty, according to the magazine:

Katama Bay oysters had a bit of a bacteria scare last year, but all is well now:

Since the bacteria are only a problem in warm waters, the old saying about eating oysters in the months ending in "r" may be sound advice, and according to the magazine article December is the month for the best flavor.

However, if oysters are not for you, no worries -- there are all sorts of options available:

Thank goodness the Field Club has so many activity options, as it may take many hours of tennis, swimming, and gym workouts to compensate for all the delicious island edibles!

That giant tic-tac-toe board on the balcony made me laugh -- I want one! Now I'm off to see the rest of the photos.

Good to "see" you again, Janzee! It looks like the fun is only just beginning here -- glad to see you are around to join in!

Very late in replying here, but you found the photo with the boats! So all of the images are from Patrick Ahearn homes -- at least Virginia is consistent!

Great idea, Coop! I have to say the clipper ship is pretty impressive, and perfect on a fireplace mantel. Since the word Katama apparently means "crab-fishing place" I would most likely go crazy with a crustacean theme, so the obvious choice for me would be the lobster weathervane (since there is no crab!). And then I would have to display the "Pigs Fly" one prominently in the front yard, as I think the only way I will ever win a DH is when pigs fly!

LOL! Do you think the residents of Martha's Vineyard will find a horde of HGTV bloggers descending upon their little island a lot more alarming than any great white shark?

LOL! Will do, Coop! I doubt I could find all the links you do anyway -- you seem to have mystical powers when it comes to finding them (Deerspring does as well).

This architect also drew up a site plan and architectural plans for Field Club Residences:

I suppose it is still possible another architect designed the Dream Home, but then I don't think they would have featured so many houses by Patrick Ahearn in the clues!

See the clue #3 post -- almost all of the images are from homes by Patrick Ahearn.
