This was a few minutes earlier than the other video. My sister said there were two explosions. A smaller one then a really big one. The bilge and then the gas tank? Just conjecture. Everyone got off safely?
So before Last Night’s Taping Of The GloucesterCast we Had Been Talking About How Gloucester Should Have a Park and Shuttle Solution Like Rockport Does. Well, Duh, It Has had One For a Long While! I Don’t Think Many People Know About It Though.
Charlene Delaney who volunteers at the Stage Fort Park Visitor’s Center came out and explained Gloucester’s system of parking free at Stage Fort and being shuttled all over town for next to nothing on The CATA shuttle.

Congratulations to Duck Soup from Pt. Judith, Rhode Island for landing the 1st tuna in the 2015 Bluefin Blowout. Watch video of the weigh-in here.
Where Joey survives yet another attack from Paul Frontiero’s vicious (read adorable) Izzy.
Just in time for the peak of summer, Surfari opens it doors in downtown Gloucester. After the success of the Manchester location, they brought their amazing style and selection to us! My nephews and niece are in town, so I thought it was a perfect time to peep out the shop!!
Thanks for sweet stuff, and for providing this lil island with an awesome beach shop!
Last night, a number of our Gloucester friends came to the Robert Randolph & The Family Band concert we presented at The Cabot in Beverly, some of whom exclaimed, “Boy it’s just amazing that we can see this level of music so close to home!”
Indeed, Beverly is about as close as a national touring artist, the likes of Robert Randolph, is likely to get to Gloucester. So perhaps it’s time for us to extend our notion of “just down the road” to include Beverly, which is … dare I say … over the bridge.
Tomorrow we’re bringing three of the hottest Boston area bands to the Cabot stage: Boston Music Award winners Ruby Rose Fox and Jesse Dee with Salem’s Sarah & the Wild Versatile. We believe all three bands will soon be playing much bigger venues — that are much farther away than Beverly and — oh yeah — charge a whole lot more for tickets. ALL AGES seats for tomorrow’s concert start at $15 (the same as it costs to see Jurassic World at the mall). It’s a great show for your kids, who’ll be able to say “I saw them up close at The Cabot!” Good seats are still available here.
Congratulations to the Captain and Crew of the Bulldog! They have the 1st fish on the hook in this year’s Bluefin Blowout Tournament!
Let’s hope they get it on the boat and then stay tuned for the ETA at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort for weigh in. Good luck, Bulldog!!
If you haven’t seen a bluefin tuna up-close, you should!

@fishprinter This is a rough print of perhaps 9 foot long 800# mako caught by Marciano last year that i finally got around to printing – anyone want a print of it ? Make a donation to the pulmonary hypertension association and its yours- high bidder by 7/28 takes it. Tax deductible. @captmarciano
