She is a graduate of the UC-Irvine MFA program and a recipient of a St. Botolph Foundation Emerging Artists Grant.

Maggie Dietz and Todd Hearon led a lively discussion on October’s sold out book club selection, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Many of our Piping Plover volunteers will recognize two of October’s attendees, Kerry and Patty. Every morning at sunrise, these two are at Good Harbor Beach cleaning up, what on some mornings amounts to, a mountain of litter. 


Last week we posted a photo of a group of Great Blue Herons, Cormorants, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, and Great Egrets all foraging together on a rainy morning. The Great Blue Herons are so perfectly camouflaged when perched on the rocky shoreline and we asked how many GBH folks could see. Reader Julie W. saw the most and she even sent the photo back with the Great Blues circled. Thank you Julie for taking the time to do that!!

Fun time at Gloucester’s City Hall for Halloween Festival

What fun on Sunday afternoon at Gloucester’s City Hall. Thank you Mayor and all the volunteers for a great time. Love all the costumes on both kids and parents. Helped not be so nervous waiting for the Champion Red Sox Game.

Coffins Beach …

Cape Ann Home

89 Wingaersheek Road Gloucester $2,725,000 (Under Contract)

Behind the stone pillars, down an exclusive, oceanfront road is where you’ll find this 1990 built Coffins Beach home. Located “mid beach”, the sweeping 180 degree vistas are mesmerizing from both first and second floors. The spectacular views of this private, unspoiled mile and a half beach start the moment you enter the home. Drawn into the open living/dining room and out onto the deck, you’ll feel like you’re already “in the dunes” and on the beach. The home includes easy 8 car parking and a detached garage for all your water toys. Family and guests will love Gloucester’s vibrant arts scene and beach-town activities, just 50 minutes north of Boston.
