Out at the Eastern Point Lighthouse From Judy lawler

Hi Joey,
I’ve been following Good Morning Gloucester since around May this year. I really enjoy learning more about Gloucester (even though I’ve been coming up often and on for many years.)
Not getting out much – (self isolating, except to do a little photography) – I don’t know if you accept photos for posts, but I took a ride up this evening from Boston, and the skies were beautiful in the Eastern Post Area tonight.
I’ve attached a couple of photos if you are interested in posting.
Thanks so much for all the great information on Gloucester.  There’s so much more for me to explore now!!!

Out at the Eastern Point Lighthouse . . .

The video is OUT! Sicilan singer Sissy Castrogiovanni Recording on Halfmoon Beach last month and the video was just released!

All I can say is that sometimes you just happen to kayak to the right place at the right time!  Early this morning as I’m paddling into Half Moon Beach, I hear this angelic voice singing in Sicilian, che bella voce!  There’s a team with her recording. Of course I have to go over and say buon giorno.
Turns out it’s Boston’s own Sicilian-born Sissy Castrogiovanni, Italian award-winning jazz singer and composer, recording today on the beach since sunrise!
Her first album, “Intra Lu Munnu” as well as her latest, “Terra”, are available on Spotify and are beautifully sung in her Sicilian dialect. Of course she loves Gloucester!  You can also check her out  at sissycastrogiovanni.com.  So happy to have met her and her video team Francesco and Luigi, as they were finishing up and before they took off for Caffe Sicilia🇮🇹
Ciao ciao

Family Dinner at Tonno

We took FOB Paula Ryan O’Brien to Tonno for dinner over the weekend to celebrate her visit to our fair city. Online reservations are very easy through Resy on the Tonno website here. We sat inside as it was a little rainy and all tables are safely distanced. We had outstanding service as always. Paula ordered the pork chop and she loved it. Jim had the “Sunday Sauce and Meatballs” (always a favorite) and I had the Chicken Milanese, now a new favorite. We felt safe and well cared for. Thanks Tonno for facilitating our family dinner!
