Look for the video inside the Rudder Reconstruction project Monday Morning. Yep, you knew I’d get you on the inside, didn’t ya?
Here is a real Gloucester fisherman. The kind they should be writing books about.
Some people have certain chores or errands they do every Saturday. They do laundry, banking, baking, shopping, visit a relative, etc. Others wing it. Usually that’s what I do.
It depends almost entirely on the weather. If it was warm and sunny today, I would have taken a short bike ride after breakfast. Or go out and look for signs of spring with the camera.
But since today’s kinda iffy, I think I’ll go down and see the Charlie Lowe photography exhibit at the Cape Ann Museum. It’s free on Saturday mornings for locals. Then visit my Mom for a while. I also want to go look at mountain bikes. But I’ll have my camera with me…just in case.
So what are your plans today? Are you a routine person or do you go with whatever comes up?
Thanks To Frank Ciolino for these old pictures.
This picture is taken from where the Pigeon Cove Whole Foods/ Montagnino Building is looking from the inner harbor outwards. Note the broken down piers and abandoned boat.
Things sure look a whole lot different today than they did in 1980 on Parker street and the State Fish Pier. Check back at 8:00AM for the view in 1980 thanks to pictures made available by Frank Ciolino.
