Chappaquiddick

In recording our explorations of Martha’s Vineyard, I feel that I should also record that we visited Chappaquiddick yesterday, and stood on Dike Bridge where Edward Kennedy’s car went off into the sea in July 1969.   At this remove, it was hard to see how he could possibly have taken a wrong turning down an unpaved road and left Mary Jo Kopechne in the sea to drown.   But at least I remember the months of news coverage of the trial.   This is the so-called Chappy Ferry:

And this is the view from the bridge:
