Plum Island from Steep Hill, Steep Hill from Plum Island

steep hill at crane estate

Spent the day Saturday re-exploring my old stomping grounds from years living in Newbury and on Plum Island.  After shooting Crane Estate and Plum Island from the top of Steep Hill, we made our way to the end of Plum Island Refuge and shot Steep Hill from there.  It looks a lot closer when you are just looking across the water, but it was an enjoyable adventure.  I’d forgotten how much I love that area.

Passports Restaurant Gloucester swordfish©Kim Smith 2015There are so many delicious appetizers and entrees to choose from at Passports, and all are very reasonably priced. On a recent visit my husband had melt-in-your mouth swordfish, grilled to perfection, served with super yummy scalloped potatoes, and a medley of veggies, all for only NINETEEN dollars. For the first course, I had the special French onion soup, which was not too salty as is so often the case; it was perfect and really hit the spot. Although an appetizer, for the main course I next had the fried oysters, which IMO are the absolute best around, hands down, without a doubt. We love the the always friendly and welcoming wait staff at Passports and our dinner was made especially outstanding by Sally!

Open for lunch and dinner, with community events happening often and throughout the week, make Passports one of your regular go-to dining spots!Passports fried oysters Gloucester Restaurant ©kim Smith 2015
