@PhilStacey_SN: Video of postgame between Beverly and Danvers hockey from this afternoon at Essex Sports Center. Beverly head coach Greg Fonzi and Danvers assistant Colby Mulry have words — you can see a Fonzi stick out his hand to shake before he shoves Mulry down to the ice.

Bliss Bites At The Cape Ann YMCA Might Be The BEST Healthy Food Option In Gloucester

After Pickleball and the elliptical machine I wandered down to the Bliss Bites Cafe at the Y and had this delicious Quinoa, toasted sweet potato, chickpea and feta bowl for $6.50.

Healthy, delicious, reasonably priced and satisfying. I’ve been longing for a place I can reliably go and not blow my diet in one meal. Bliss Bites Cafe is that place!


I took a little time yesterday to drive by the boulevard and around the back shore. Here are some of the photos I took of the waves and surf from Windy Izzy. Debris was all over the roads from the previous high tide and early morning winds. While we dodged the snow the ocean sure was stormy.

The Spot in Georgetown

I like to try new restaurants and I keep the Serenitee restaurants at the top of that list for obvious reasons (rewards and points for example). Not one of them has disappointed me so we decided to take the half hour or so ride up 133 to give The Spot in Georgetown a try.

It was easy to find, easy to park. We were greeted warmly and served efficiently by Nathaniel. There’s a large bar area with some seating as well as a separate area with tables. When we arrived, it was fairly quiet but soon filled up. Several young families were there which indicates a friendly atmosphere and menu for a wide range of customers. I had the Rueben and Jim has the chicken sandwich. We each cleaned our plates and were too full for dessert. I am glad we took the ride to give this a try. We will return. Thanks Serenitee for the friendly atmosphere and delicious foods in each location.
