The New Book Jaws: Memories from Martha's Vineyard I'm enclosing a photo from when I was seven or so, my sister was six.  We're in Edgartown MA in front of the JAWS 2 sign along with my grandmother.  

I moved to Martha's Vineyard when I was five.  Right before I moved there with my folks we saw Jaws at a drive-in theater.  After the shark first appeared, my father leaning over the front seat exclaiming to me and my sister cowering in the back, "That's where we're moving too!"  

So we did.  Being a fanof the film and fan of the water it never really bothered me to go swimming.  In 1987 Universal came back to Martha's Vineyard to shoot  Jaws: The Revenge I appear as the chubby faced kid playing and E flat Base Clarinet in the band- it was February and I was wearing penny loafers.  It was beyond cold and we were there for several hours.  Enjoy-
