What fun last night! The Hoola Hoopla was a huge success! I never imagined that so many kids (and adults) would want to try their hand at hooping! We had tiny tots trying to spin their hoops, and of course the bigger kids who love to outdo their friends.
Jennifer Goulart Amero from Metamorphosis Fitness brought hoops from her studio on Main St. She hooped all night and taught the kids some tricks and moves.
A wonderful woman (I ‘ve forgotten her name) who teaches at Brookwood, brought handmade hoops to share.
It truly was a community effort. And again I’d like to thank the following people for their help and support:
Rich at Iron Rail Gymnastics Academy
Toni at Tara Montessori
Jen at Metamorphosis Fitness
Carmine at Friendly’s Restaurant
Jerry at West End Sweets
The Brookwood teacher
Kylie (my granddaughter)
Joey and the GMG Gang
and all the kids and adults who made last night so much fun!
From Jay of Cape Ann Images–
“With permission from Mayor Carolyn Kirk I was able to climb a series of stairs and ladders to the top of Gloucester’s historic City Hall tower. After a fire destroyed the original building, work was begun in 1870 for a then sum of $100,000! Recently the tower has received renovations to correct a lean in the tower and has been strengthened. The windows weren’t the cleanest but I managed to get these shots. My handheld GPS showed 153′ above sea level at the upper most reaches.
And check out his other photos as well!
Jay’s photography is incredible. Check these photos from yesterday. They are amazing!
Jay swung by the dock and took me for a quick ride through Smith Cove (Rocky Neck) past the North Shore Art Association, Beacon Marine, and all the way around past the restaurants, boats and Marine Railway. Jay has a bad ass 300mm zoom lens and it was fun fooling around with that for a bit. I have major lens/camera envy. I take pretty decent photographs but can only imagine how much better they could be with a good camera like Jays.
I made a three part video series which will debut tonight at 8PM
