We’ve all been hoping so much that the Young Swan would be a female and that romance, or at the least friendship, would blossom between it and Mr. Swan. The results are in and our little she is actually a he. The news is somewhat dismaying because we do not know how Mr. Swan will react once he makes a determination. Will he allow the Young Swan to continue to live at Niles in the spring or will he drive him off? Perhaps Mr. Swan, who is at least 28 years old this year, will not be as territorial as would a much younger male Mute Swan and the two will live peaceably. For now, he is in the good care of Lyn and decisions won’t need to be made for a few months.

Notice how greatly the Young Swan’s plumage has changed over the past few months. In the photo on the left, he is four months old. In the next two photos, he is approximately eight months old.

Diana Peck reports that today along the backshore, the birders were finding Buffleheads, Goldeneyes, Red-breasted Mergansers, Common Eiders, Black Ducks & Mallards, and I overheard someone say when stopping to take a photo, Black Scoters.

His given name is Paul Cohan, but we all lovingly know him

friend of our fair city and its community. His profound anthem,
“Wrapped in the Arms of Gloucester” is honestly one of the most
moving pieces of all the Rhumb Line performances I’ve witnessed
over these many years. Paul makes us laugh and he makes us
cry – and sometimes, he even makes us cry with laughter. ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!

After the Bridge, Comes the Quarry

Yesterday I posted a photo of a beautiful bridge in Rockport that I had never seen before…even though I have lived in Rockport for 17 years and Gloucester for a few before that.  Several people asked where the bridge is located.  In explaining that you drive over the bridge just before reaching Granite Pier and that if you drive down to the small boat yard you will see the mini Motif before driving through the lot…and soon enough under that bridge….I also mentioned that you’d reach a quarry immediately afterwards.  So, today I am sharing photos of the quarry as well.  And then realized I should also post the mini Motif again as well…
