NAUSET LIGHT ~ A BEAUTIFULLY CARED FOR AND BELOVED ICON OF CAPE COD

Nauset Light Eastham Cape Cod ©kim Smith 2015Nauset Light, moved from its previous precarious perch above eroding bluffs, is today beautifully maintained by the Nauset Light Preservation Society, a group of dedicated locals who are committed to preserving and interpreting its important story for visitors.

From the Nauset Light Preservation Society website: The Coast Guard owned Nauset Light and had no plans for saving it. Modern instrumentation has diminished the need for lighthouses. However, the lighthouse is still used by the fishing fleets and small recreational boaters who navigate close to the shore. Nauset Light is an important part of Eastham’s cultural and maritime history, and is the most well-known and photographed lighthouse on Cape Cod.

A group of citizens in Eastham formed the Nauset Light Preservation Society, a non-profit volunteer organization whose original mission was to rescue the lighthouse. This was accomplished in November 1996. Read More Here.

The Paper House

The Paper House

Many of you have probably visited The Paper House at one time or another if you grew up in Rockport or Gloucester.  I remember visiting it as a child when my grandmother (God only knows how she found it) took us there.  My mother and I went to visit it again yesterday.  It is a cool tucked away little treasure in Pigeon Cove, well worth a visit if you’ve never been, or a nice memory to return to if you haven’t been in years.  It was built by Elis and Esther Stenman, who must have been a very unique and interesting couple.  You can learn more about it at http://www.paperhouserockport.com/index.html.  It seems to always be open, and is run on the honor system, where you leave your $2 admission in a metal mailbox by the front door of the main house.  There are signs, but it is a little tricky to find.  From Rockport, take left just before you reach the Tool Company, go up a little and take a left and then your second right (watch for signs).  It is #52 Pigeon Hill Street.  Coming the other way, take the right up a hill, right after you pass the Tool Company, then first left and second right.

If you look closely, the 2nd photo includes The Boston Post edition from April 16, 1924, in which the Sox apparently lost with 24,000 fans watching.

Opening Saturday October 24th 4pm – 6pm

The Gallery at Barrington Center for the Arts | Gordon College

Cape Ann Giclee worked with esteemed photographer Les Bartlett on printing his featured piece “Ekklesia” for his new show, it is a 9 ft by 30 ft piece made up of 12 panels. Les combines his technical skill with artistic spiritually so seamlessly it draws the viewer into the piece in a way that lets us experience the beauty of the granite that surrounds us thru his reverent eyes. You will never look at a quarry wall the same way again.

THAT NUTTY REDHEAD IS GOING PLACES!

Lisa Griffiths, also known as That Nutty redhead writes,

“Hey Folks, This coming Sunday, Oct. 25th, you’ll discover an article about our That Nutty Redhead in the Boston Globe!!! We are most honored. We’ll post the article for those that do not have access to this most important, and read, paper.”

Fill ‘Er Up

So, this has been making me happy.  Super cheap and conveniently right down the street from my work.

If you happen to be “over the bridge”, “up the line”, or simply out of town and could use a top off or a fill up, head to the Shell Station on Brimbal Avenue in Beverly.  The construction in that area (making room for the new Whole Foods) could be a bit of a deterrent, but if you’re in no rush….it is totally worth it!
