Helen Scarborough, owner of the Sea Shrimp, stands on the house's porch. The cottage is painted the color of a shrimp.One night each year, dubbed Grand Illumination Night, the houses are lit by Japanese lanterns. The festival is one of Martha's Vineyard's summer hightlights. Scarborough decorates for the festival every year - the lantern in the photo was made by her late husband out of flower pots.
