Makes me think of Stephen M

This is something from my hometown paper. Thought it might be of interest. The Elizabeth Islands are mostly uninhabited now, but they have the most beautiful names--- here is a link about them. I have never been out to them as they are mostly for seals and fishing. But you can see them from the Vineyard easily, and you pass by them on the way from Woods Hole on the boat.

And here is the one that reminded me of Stephen Maturin
