Old Rocky Neck Postcard vs Modern Day Photos Of The Same Scene


I’m surprised that when the Rudder was renovated they didn’t keep that puke green color and instead went with a deep Gloucester cranberryWinking smile



Notice the windows in this photo EJ took way back then on the postcard?  No awning nowadays though.  I suppose delivery trucks would rip those awnings down on a daily basis if they were still on the front of the building.



MUST GO TO CAPE ANN BREW PUB DURING DINE OUT! Read more about all the restaurants that are participating during Dine-Out here and listen to our podcast with Mark McDonough and Kerry McKenna here.

2015 RNAC Arts & Crafts Holiday Festival

Open to All Rocky Neck Art Colony Artist Members

All Rocky Neck Art Colony artist members are invited to participate in this year’s Holiday Festival at the Cultural Center. This is an open show and all RNAC member artists are welcome to show and sell fine crafts and artwork in any medium. Spaces include a variety of wall spaces, jewelry displays, tables, and print bins on both floors. The main entrance this year will be on the lower level to make sure all artists have equal coverage. We are  planning 5 exciting parties and are planning a big publicity campaign. Applications will be accepted until all spaces are taken, but to get your name on the poster and postcard you must apply by October 31. Be sure to take advantage of this membership benefit to show your work at the Cultural Center on Rocky Neck.

See for more information and to download an application. Contact if you have any questions.

If you are not a RNAC member, this is a good time and reason to join.  Membership is good for one year from date of sign up.  This is a fun show, with great traffic and sales, and the show is manned on open days, so you don’t have to be there except to set up your display, replenish as things sell and have fun at the parties.

2,000 tulip bulbs planted Saturday by Generous Gardeners

Hi Joey,

On Saturday morning 15 Generous Gardener volunteers planted 2,000 tulip bulbs at the Fishermen’s Wives Memorial.  The bulbs were purchased from proceeds from the annual Garden Tour with some funds from the Fishermen’s Wives.  Thank you to all who came to help.  Stay tuned for significantly expanded gardens after the seawall project is complete!

3 Minutes of Fame

Cape Ann Youth Hockey’s Mite 1 team (and my boys), had the awesome opportunity to skate during an intermission at last Wednesday’s Bruins game.  While they were only on the ice for 3 short minutes, the whole experience (from check in, to jumbo-tron, to private elevator, to locker room, to some VIP treatment from Bruins employees) created memories to last a lifetime.

I threw together this completely amateur video for them the next day.  I’m guessing this will be one of those days that they look back on pretty fondly years from now and I’m so glad this great group of kids had the chance to experience this together.
