Heron sequel — pat morss

Don’t mean to inundate you with Great Blue Heron photos, but our friend did return and put on a good follow-up act.

@FishermenGHS: A big THANK YOU to the Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Assoc. for purchasing masks/gaiters for all the coaches in our program. Great to have coaches swing by last night to personally receive from GFAA Prez Kristin Michel.

Do Yourself a Favor and Get Down to the Studio on Rocky Neck!

The Studio on Rocky Neck is a lovely setting for a quiet delicious late afternoon lunch or dinner AND often has half price food options during the week. I had the haddock sandwich and Jim had a seafood platter. As a special treat, I ordered the fried pickles for my side dish. Oh, it was a very good decision and I recommend you consider going down to 51 Rocky Neck Ave for a safely distanced treat! Check here before you go for specials.

The view!
The food!
The drinks!
