GLOUCESTER, MASS. (November 2020) – During the month of November, the Cape Ann Museum is offering more walking tours throughout the city to educate participants about the region’s significant influence on many important artists from Edward Hopper and Fitz Henry Lane to Winslow Homer.
In the time of the global pandemic, the 1 ½-hour outdoor walking tours on Saturdays and Sundays are a safe and easy way to learn more about the influence of Cape Ann’s storied light, natural beauty and maritime history that has inspired many of America’s most renowned artists. Tour guides point out the notable sites that these artists rendered in some of the world’s most famous paintings and beloved works…
We recently returned to Oliver’s Harbor on Main Street in Gloucester and quickly realized how much we had missed them! We prefer to eat in the bar area to people watch and check out the sports on TV. It’s a great bar area at Oliver’s with varied seating (all distanced and sanitized appropriately). The bread and oil were outstanding—-the oil was LOADED with garlic cloves and olives. Just right. I chose one of the specials: chicken broccoli alfredo and was not disappointed. The alfredo was light, the chicken and broccoli were plentiful. Jim went with the baked haddock — nothing remained to take home! Melanie was our cheerful and efficient server. As with other restaurants we have been to since reopening, we felt safely distanced and secure in the obvious sanitation efforts the staff is putting forth.
Over the summer, we met some nice people on a Lannon sail (hello photographer Judith!) and recommended Oliver’s Harbor to them. They were unable to get in that day, but I hope they will return one day and give it a try!
