Saturday Gran Prix in Gloucester, MA

What a great day and so much fun to watch. Here are some pictures from Saturday’s race. As I was talking to spectators and bikers from all over the world, the city of Gloucester is so lucky to have this event here. People were asking me where to eat, stay and enjoy themselves. They love the location and look forward to coming back year after year.
The following is some information with regards to the race.

A Magnificent Fog Bow

magic morning with fog bow

This morning’s fog was incredibly beautiful, but the most magical scene was a complete fog bow I encountered walking over to Eastern Point.  I have seen hints of them before – the start or end of one, but never a complete and clearly visible one.  It is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.  If there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow – I wonder what awaits one at the end of a fog bow.  Fog bows are also called white rainbows and sometimes are called sea dogs by mariners.

Thee Autumn Blooming Beauties

Henry Eiler’s Sweet Coneflower is a North American native that bears the name of the southern Illinois horticulturist who found it growing at a railroad prairie remnant. When lightly rubbed, the leaves of Rudbeckia subtomentosa reveal their sweet vanilla scent.

For more about Quilled Sweet Coneflower see GMG post from last summer.

Did you miss New Bedford’s Working Waterfront Festival yesterday? That’s OK. Music next Saturday will be even better!

If you were at New Bedford’s Working Waterfront Festival yesterday you were likely part of the crowd giving a standing ovation for Allen Estes with multi-platinum artist Dave Brown on guitar and Matt Leavenworth on fiddle.

This Saturday, Oct 5, you’ve got a chance to top that performance when Allen, Dave & Matt are joined by the great Dave Mattacks on drums, Wolf Ginandes on Bass and Steve Burke on keyboards for one night only at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly (get tickets online here).

It’s been several years since you’ve been able to see Allen with a full, six-piece band — and this rare assemblage of extraordinary talent may not come together again for another few years.

So you really don’t want to miss this one-night-only concert.

There are still some good seats left, so get your tickets now to be assured of the best possible seats.

If you end up waiting until the last minute, be sure to bring cash.

Tickets at the door are cash only.
