The view from the boardwalk on a spring day – can you spot the two new homes?

Long Beach panoramic (click picture to enlarge) view at low tide, April 2017. The barrier rip rap is mightily exposed. At other times the large boulders are buried beneath deep sand.
This spring awakening is calm. Most of the homes remain prepped for winter.

It’s not common to integrate a bridge into New England homes. From where I was standing, a few of the intriguing thresholds in Gloucester and Rockport that announce their entry. Whether simple or ornate, necessary or whimsical, or both –who doesn’t like a journey and a bit of suspension? I enjoy thinking about themes of transition, space and connections.

More positive national media coverage for Gloucester: Coastal Living has a great article on Gloucester in next month’s issue. The article calls Gloucester a "Coastal Dream Town" and says Gloucester has a "rare combination of urban spirit and historic charm."
"An enthusiastic nightlife scene featuring live theater and local bands is bolstered by a restaurant renaissance," the article says about our city.
Great job by you and local Remax Realtor (and GoodMorningGloucester contributor) Kenny MacCarthy for talking with the reporter and providing colorful quotes in the story.
Matter Communications started talking with Coastal Living, one of the top lifestyle and travel magazines, about Gloucester two years ago so it’s nice to see such a positive story finally come out! Matter works with the Cape Ann Chamber and local businesses to put the good word out about what a great place Gloucester is to live, work and visit.

We all know Cape Ann has some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. The great images in GoodMorningGloucester everyday are proof!
National magazine Coastal Living is asking people to send in their best island-related photos for an upcoming issue about islands. Think Ten Pound Island. Salt Island. Thacher Island. Straitsmouth Island.
Photos should be sent as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org , with the name of the sender, phone number and description of the photo (including where and when it was taken) in the body of the email. The image should be in .tif or .eps format and at least 300 dpi. One photo entry per reader.
More than 625,000 people read Coastal Living every month, so we would be showcasing Cape Ann’s beauty to a large, national audience.
