Nichole Chartered Stevie Douglas’s boat last night with a bunch of friends. Such a no-brainer and tons of fun!

Boys want to paddleboard in the harbor this year to watch the greasy pole and boat races. Too dangerous for them?

Can’t wait to book a room at the new hotel and spend the day by the pool and at the pool bar.

Trolley about to start from stage fort park. Talk about no-brainer! A great way to get to good Harbor Beach on the weekends without having to pay a fortune to park.

Our Bridgette Mathews with husband Neil



How long have you lived in Gloucester? 

All my life (except for a few years “up the line” as a youth while my Dad worked in Marblehead).

What is your favorite season In Gloucester? 

Fall..although summer can’t get here quick enough!

Do you have any secret outdoor spots in Gloucester where you go to “get away”?  

My favorite spot is Annisquam Light at sunset sitting on the rocks or Plum Cove at sunset while taps echoes along the beach.

What is your favorite pizza joint in Gloucester?

 Sebastians….Linquica pizza

What is your favorite sub shop in Gloucester?  

Destino’s Meatball sub….My Aunt Margaret Destino used to make the best meatball subs 😀

What place would you go for a romantic dinner in Gloucester?

My date nights are most always at the Azorean, although the Franklin is our #2 spot.

What is your favorite bar in Gloucester? 

Not into the bar scene much, but on a nice summer’s afternoon you might find Neil and I with drinks on the decks of Capt Carlos or Mile Marker.

What is your favorite breakfast joint in Gloucester? 

That’s a tough one….depends on what you are in the mood for. 

George’s, Sugar Mags and Morning Glory are in our regular rotation.

What is your favorite local event in Gloucester?  

Fiesta…it’s in the blood.

In the summer do you prefer the beach or to be on a boat? 

Definitely the beach or on a kayak 😀

Who is your favorite local artist? 

Far too many greats to choose just one….I couldn’t even begin to try!

Which is your favorite local beach? 

Good Harbor, 1st board walk

Who has the best chowder in town?  

You’ll have to ask the fish eating community that one lol!

Excluding GMG what is your second favorite local blog? 

The Gloucester Clam makes me LOL

Do you prefer haddock chowder or clam chowder? 

Again….seafood….can’t do it lol!

What were your thoughts on The Downtown Block Parties last year?  

Only made one last year but it’s a great night to see and connect with people.

What is your favorite local band? 

Don’t really get to hear many bands…I don’t get out much….sad but true.

What about Gloucester sets it apart from anywhere else? 

It’s community is like no other.   We are unique geographically which makes us tighter knit than most other communities.   In my opinion there is no other town with as much beauty and character (but I may be bias!)

Thanks, Joey

Artist Spotlight Series – Bridgette Mathews

Spotlight on Bridgette Mathews

Bridgette feels so lucky to have been born and raised in the beautiful coastal community of Gloucester, and feels spoiled living next door to some of the most photographed surroundings in New England. Every time she goes “ova the bridge” to seek out bigger and better scenes to photograph, she always finds that there’s very little that compares to our breathtaking, ever-changing backyard.

She has raised three grown daughters on this island and is now enjoying her recent empty-nest status with her husband Neil, living life one adventure at a time. She has been taking “pictures” all her life but in the past few years has been able to slow down and use her creativity to create “Photographs”. As a Photo-hobbyist, landscapes are her favorite subjects and she’s a sucker for a stunning cloud filled sunset! She enjoys the process of capturing an image and finds that the most rewarding part of photography is the discovery and knowledge behind each subject that she photographs, as well as the many people she meets along the way.

You can see more of Bridgette’s stunning photography at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson Street, East Gloucester during the Rocky Neck Holiday Art & Fine Crafts Festival
