You're on MV during a really nice time I would imagine most if not all the tourist are gone and you are free to explore in peace. I vactioned there for more than 10 years and had family that used to live there, but stopped going when it got too crowded and having to make a reservation to get you car across six months in advance became a chore. My favorite time to go was the before Labor Day or after Memorial Day it was just busy enough to be interesting but not crazy. I've enjoyed reading your RR.
Is Lola's Restaurant still there? It used to be good years ago, when Bill Clinton was on the island he would eat there and when the President came in you couldn't leave and no one could come in.
