Our winter resident Snowy Owl Hedwig finds plenty to eat along the backshore. Prior to taking off to hunt in the early evening we see her swivel her head and look out to sea, and then swivel around to scan the golf course. We wonder, is she thinking “Shall I have duck for dinner, or shall I have rabbit?” Here she is yesterday morning, face covered in schmutz, a happy sign to see.
The best wave watching Sunday afternoon was from Atlantic Road, especially when the light turned silver-gray-violet. The mist from the pounding waves filled the air, creating a beautiful diffused quality. It was mesmerizing to see the waves hurling against the rocky coastline. Often the force was so loud, it sounded like a sonic boom had exploded. Atlantic Road was closed to car traffic while pedestrians strolled the road as though a promenade. After watching the full force of the waves during high tide, I headed over to Straitsmouth Island in Rockport. Less in strength, but still spectacular to watch.
So many places to discover on Cape Ann.

I was fortunate to be able to attend the Next Generation Cape Ann’s Young Professionals Event at Pier 23 last night. Much thanks to the Markos family for opening Pier 23’s doors (on Nick’s birthday nonetheless) to this crowd of young and passionate Cape Ann enthusiasts. It was a wonderful opportunity to network and meet likeminded young professionals who were eager to share their ideas, careers, passions, and goals for Cape Ann. I was happy to be there as both a contributor to Good Morning Gloucester and the Direction of Communication for Harborlight Montessori. I enjoyed a night out with friends and definitely met some contacts whom I look forward to contacting in the near future.
I look forward to Next Generation Cape Ann’s next gathering and will surely keep you all in the loop.
