Brook and Kristin Zern
We first met on Menemsha Beach when we were teenagers. We married, had kids and the Vineyard was always a special place for our family on vacation. We rented houses every year for 50 years but we never bought a home (regrettably) until 2007 when we decided to move from New York City to the Vineyard year round. A number of our friends since childhood also were "retiring" to their homes here, so winter is actually full of activity nowadays.
Our plan was/is to rent the house during the summer season while we are in Spain following the pursuit of flamenco. The photo shows us at a ceremony at the Spanish Embassy in Washington, DC where Brook has just been knighted by Juan Carlos I, the King of Spain for his life long "dissemination of Spanish culture in the U.S.".
We decided it was time to finally after 50 years of renting to buy a house.
