Correction! Sorry bout miss-naming Ardelle. Too many boat names; used to sail on Arabella.
This is the time of year we get photos f these fish sent into the blog as the Giant Sunfish are not seen all the time and when people come across them they recognize how different they are.
Also the subject of one of the funniest videos ever when a couple of Massholes documented their encounter with a “Baby Whale”
Here’s my brief personal take on a successful Gloucester Labor Day Weekend Schooner Festival. Saturday eveing down on the docks before race day, and on Sunday the Parade of Sail out to the starting line, seeing the race at a distance from our house, and then sailing out on Troll to welcome some of the 27 schooners back into the harbor.
Hanna Kimberley Writes:
In March 2020, Anna Baglaneas-Eves and her husband, James Eves, launched a pandemic-proof venture: solar-powered sea salt. They collect ocean water in Rockport, filter it and evaporate it in a greenhouse in their backyard. “This is ocean-to-table,” she says. After growing sales 250% in 2021, they’re now expanding Cape Ann Sea Salt from farmers’ markets and online sales to restaurants and stores.

After parading in the harbor, the schooners went out beyond the breakwater for the Mayor’s Cup race to compete for the Esperanto Cup, the Ned Cameron Trophy, and the Betty Ramsey Award. After the race some sailed away to their home port…hopefully to return next year.
While we were on our recent trip to the Pacific Northwest, Gloucester came to mind several times. We took a ride along the local scenic byway (which I recommend anytime you get the chance anywhere you are) and came upon this bucolic scene that I wanted to share. It’s called the San Juan Islands Scenic Byway and I recommend giving it a shot if you ever find yourself there.
There’s quite a bit of farmland in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington and it’s quite striking especially in cases where you can see the ocean nearby. Although this wasn’t the case here, I still found the scene worthy to share as a Barn Along the Byway.
Race results are in!
