It’s been raining for like 40 days and 40 nights. But the sun is bound to come out sometime and when it does, time to head outdoors. Looking for a little hand-holding, though, to bring you back to the wild? Then you’re in luck. On Sunday, Nov. 14 the Vineyard Conservation Society is leading a walk out to Norton Point Beach on Chappy.

Anyone interested should meet at the Chappy Ferry parking lot at 12:45 p.m. If already on Chappy, meet at the Wasque TTOR gatehouse at 1 p.m.

The walk will begin at the gatehouse, go down toward fishermen’s lot to see Wasque Point at the overlook, then head along the trail to view the erosion occurring to Swan Pond. After that it’s off to the old swimming beach at Wasque and around toward Norton Point.

The walk will be over both hard trail and sand and last about an hour.

Cider and cookies will be served. All VCS walks are family-friendly and free.

For a complete schedule of all VCS walks visit or call 508-693-9588.
