Autumn’s Army

Autumn’s Army

I drove out to West Gloucester along Concord Street

and found a spot where one of the many little creeks

that form much of Essex Bay floods the marsh and,

at high tide, gently meets the roadbed.

It was there, at that exact spot, that autumn,

having slowly and silently infiltrated from the east

confronted the last remaining troops of summer

across the tranquil reflective pool.


On the west bank stood the trees of summer,

looking somewhat pale and worn, but still

wearing the green uniform of forces

that have seen days and nights of glory.

On the east massed the army of the new season,

resplendent in the colors of its order

and resting before fording the flood to

take the retreating enemy in a display of brilliance.


I’ll drive out to West Gloucester along Concord Street

in a few weeks to see how autumn’s army is getting along.

Some Babson Boulders

The Babson Boulders are always good targets for a walk in the woods.

If you click on the photo Rubber Duck also visits, “Prosperity Follows Service”, orange blaze trail, rock on little rocks, RD takes a dip in the creek, “BEON TIME”, “Study”, cellar hole 22 and large cracked alien egg rock at the top of Tarr Trail.

What kind of time is BEON time? Just kidding. Really needs a space though. Captain Samuel Riggs son Joseph lived at #22.

FYI: being Sunday and all if you zoom in on Rubber Duck you can check out how she is styling with a beaded necklace from Beth Williams.

Flahertys Represent with Joey

Brendan and Heather Flaherty with Aidan, Liam and Kiernan from Westport, CT, originally from Gloucester, represent with Joey C. at the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery.  They bumped into each other at Madfish Wharf after not having seen each other since High School.  You never know who you’ll meet on Rocky Neck.

Miss Massachusetts Again & Again!

You’ve seen palm trees, convertibles & movie starlets on Hollywood Boulevard, but have you ever seen a giant red lobster on a dress made from recycled sails? It isn’t Lady Gaga, but a collaboration between Frieda Grotjahn of Again & Again Recycled Sailbags and mother/daughter pair, Charlotte & Daphne Papp, of Annisquam. This November, Charlotte will travel to Anaheim, CA to represent Massachusetts in the National American Miss Pageant, where one of her outfits will have a style that is distinctly Gloucester.

For the casual wear portion of the competition, Charlotte will wear a one of a kind dress made from two recycled sails: a white spinnaker & a red spinnaker. Her mother, Daphne, approached Frieda about the project, as the self-proclaimed “pageant mother” thought it would be a clever re-use of a material frequently identified with Massachusetts. And the lobster? Not only is it a Massachusetts icon, it’s also a bold red graphic that complements the bright scarlett hat and shoes that Charlotte will wear, on Hollywood Boulevard.

Charlotte, 20, is currently a sophomore at the College of Wooster in Ohio, where she is studying to become a Broadcast Journalist. She also plays Division 1 Lacrosse.
