We had a beautiful walk on Plum Island the other day.
Not only is this snowy owl gorgeous, but it’s a rule follower as well. Good little feathered friend…could have flown anywhere, but chose to spend Monday sitting just outside the post and fence marked, “Area Beyond This Sign Closed.” As Pat D. said, “very wise.” Speaking of Pat….a giant Thank You to her for inspiring me to take a trip to find the snowy owl after seeing all of her beautiful photos!
I took a trip around the back shore on Saturday and had to stop and watch the waves. It never fails to surprise me how no two days look the same on that stretch of rocky coast.
Who knows where I am today? Too easy or too hard….what’s your point.
Yesterday’s answer was Maritime Gloucester and several of you got it right? Who knows where I am today?
Yesterday’s answer to the “Where Am I?” was the Blackbear Barbershop on Main Street in Gloucester. Who can tell me where I am today? Young and old love it here!
I thought it might be fun to bring back some “Where Am I” photos. Does anyone recognize this light fixture? I’ll give you a little hint. Many will never step foot in here (making this even more tricky), but for those who do….you’ll probably find yourself back when the time is right.
I’m often struck by how pretty City Hall really is when it comes into view as I drive around town. I had to stop and park the other day to snap this quick photo as it caught my eye.
I saw that Pat D. and GMG Jim did a post with a short video showing turkeys in Magnolia. It reminded me that I had had a run in with those very same turkeys just a few days earlier. They were definitely stopping traffic and had no care in the world that cars were trying to get by.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d prefer a sunny summer day on the harbor, but winter days sure are pretty too. Can’t go wrong, really!
Ummm….yum! I met a friend at Mile Marker One yesterday for a late breakfast. My meal was phenomenal and if you haven’t seen how great the inside of Mile Marker and the Cape Ann’s Marina Resort looks you should take a trip over for a visit and a meal.
I love this little Christmas Tree in Manchester Harbor.
While I’ve never done a great job of photographing the actual full moon, the moonlight over the harbor the other night was really pretty.
Our friends Lynne and Phil Scannell are off on some pretty big adventures….which have taken them to Hawaii. Check out the Jeep….”Entering Gloucester.”
Gnomebody (ok, nobody) knows exactly what will speak to you while shopping local. I went into Audrey’s Flower Shop for some ornaments and, after paying and heading towards the door, saw this gnome that I simply couldn’t leave behind. I’m not sure I’ll have the heart to pack him away after Christmas. He might have to hang around all year long.

Not only are they open, but have you seen their Featured Menu Speciality Flavors!? Mandarin Cocoa, Christmas Cookie, Canewich, Frozen Hot Cocoa, Candy Cane Cookie….and, now, Pain Killer….as in Mile Marker One’s delicious Pain Killer cocktail! And, don’t get me started on those ice cream sandwiches!

This beautiful statue gets me every time….but, especially on blustery freezing cold days.

‘Tis the season of seeing lots of photos of our beloved Lobster Trap Tree, but when something is this special, it is worth sharing a few times. Because, anyone can have a regular Christmas Tree….
It was an extra foggy weekend on Cape Ann. Many of the several times that I found myself driving over the bridge I could not see the river at all.
