Vote For The Duck!

Hi Joey! Two more days on the small business wish grant contest! We got in late but got over 1000 votes in 7 days!! The deadline for votes is May 12. Could you share this one more time with the Good Morning Gloucester nation? Imagine our little Bistrot winning this nationwide contest? The outpouring of support for this has been wonderful. We are fortunate to call Gloucester our home.

Sincerely,  Nicole Duckworth

Good Harbor Beach Footbridge Almost Ready for Fun!

Not yet fully functional with still a few wobbly, rotted, and missing boards, but any day now the footbridge will be ready for summer fun. I walked along the marsh edge early this morning and saw a single Great Egret, cormorants, gulls, geese, ducks, robins, and a Mourning Dove. I put my feet in the water and it was numbingly cold, but that didn’t prevent a half dozen paddle boarders from enjoying the foggy frigid surf.
