“Gray Seal in Gloucester!” Female Gray Seal who popped up her head as she was foraging for food Photos Courtesy of CarinMacnamara

What a treat to see a very large what I believe to be a female Gray Seal who popped up her head as she was foraging for food. What a beauty! This gorgeous creature was marked light with dark, irregular blotches… @ first I thought she was a bouy bobbing up and down… looked through my lens – it was a SEAL HEAD!!! If you look really closely at the first photo you will see a lighthouse reflection in this Gray Seal’s eye!

Gray Seals have distinctive nose and head shapes… kinda look like a horse’s snout… with elongated nostrils that do not meet… conversely, harbor seals have a slightly upturned nose and nostrils that form a “V” shaped heart. We have seen many boating.

Gloucester, MA – The Glen T. MacLeod Cape Ann YMCA hosted its first golf tournament at the beautiful Bass Rocks Golf Club on Monday.  It was a cold and windy day but 76 golfers hit the links to join forces to raise funds to support the Y’s educational and summer youth programming. As a result of the pandemic, the YMCA is providing increasingly more financial support to children, adults and families across all programmatic areas. The YMCA of the North Shore golf tournaments have created a viable means of fundraising to eliminate the financial barrier and enable access to those in the community that need the YMCA most. With the generous support of title sponsor Institution for Savings, this tournament raised just over…
