My daughter Liv and I love to just hop in the car and go exploring along the coast. Far off in the distance we passed this amazingly beautiful tree and I just had to take a few snapshots. Isn’t the shape stunning!?! We took lots of photos wherever we stopped and will try to find the time to post later this week.
Edited update: After Googling around, this tree in Duxbury is well-known as the ‘Perfect Tree’ and also the ‘Gumdrop Tree.’ The Perfect Tree has been pruned to its perfect shape and may be an American Linden or possibly a Copper Beach. I’m looking for more information and will contact the Duxbury Historical Society 🙂
Which competition do you think is more insane? Cheese roll race or the Greasy Pole?
Please consider helping this beautiful, kind lady. Thank you ❤

In October of 2018 Josephine Taormina was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Her team of doctors swiftly and aggressively started treatment with chemotherapy. After 70 days in the hospital, Josephine was released knowing that she would receive a stem cell transplant over the next few months from her daughter.
The stem cell transplant was considered a success and everyone thought Josephine was on her road to recovery.
Her first relapse happened in September 2019. She was back in the hospital which was becoming an all to familiar place for her and her family. During her hospitalizations, Josephine acquired many side effects both common and rare.

About Gloucester Net & Twine building –
Besides the leather factory (founded in 1932), Strong Group businesses on site for three generations of the Cutter family include advertising and product and promotional projects. Prior to the leather business, the historic factory was built and incorporated in 1884. Gloucester Net & Twine quickly ramped up as a major ancillary supplier for the fishing industry. It’s one of the largest oldest factories still standing and was placed on the National Historic Registry in 1996. Eight volumes of historic plan books for Gloucester Net & Twine Company are in the collection of Phillips Library, Peabody Essex Museum.
Gloucester Net & Twine Company is included in the National Park Service maritime history trail in MA. Gloucester is one of the cities with the most sites–only Boston has more. Besides this historic factory building, other Gloucester sites on the maritime trail include: Our Lady of Good Voyage, East Gloucester Square Historic District, Man at the Wheel, Schooner Adventure, Ten Pound Light, Eastern Point Light Station, and Annisquam Harbor Light Station. – C.

Happy Birthday to you, hope your day is great. This is Len helping the eighth graders from O’Maley building boats.
The new Chamber of Commerce building at 24 Harbor Loop seems to be coming right along. The former Capt. Bill’s Whale Watch is going to look very different! Also coming right along seems to be the new Harbormaster’s office area at 19 Harbor Loop. It appears much of the current work is inside work on both projects and the workers had a great day for it yesterday!
The mostly green building pictures are of the new Chamber of Commerce. The mostly red ones are the Harbormaster’s Office and area nearby.
