Took a walk on New Years Day with some family members outside only and had a fun day. I love that my daughter’s dog Freddy wanted to me in the photo.
Love these families who celebrated Christmas on Magnolia Avenue.
On Saturday the waves at Magnolia Beach were awesome. They gave us a good workout.

It’s inspiring to see the creative collaborative energy among downtown Gloucester mainstays. Here’s Cape Ann Art Haven winter vacation line up with Cape Ann Museum: They often work together to present engaging camps and events. The 2018 winter vacation at Art Haven includes visits to the Virginia Lee Burton retrospective and the Cape Ann libraries’ Once Upon a Contest Selections from Cape Ann Reads travel exhibit at Cape Ann Museum. Both shows are ideal context for the camp’s theme: “Imagine and create new worlds!”
Another beautiful place to reflect and realize how lucky we are to live here.

Congratulations Flynn Cruiseport Boston

This translates to $485 million in economic output, $213 million to tourism-related businesses, nearly 2,000 jobs and $10 million in annual state and local tax revenues from cruise activity. Also, with the passing of the Economic Development Bill this past July, Massport will be spending $100 million in renovations for Flynn Cruiseport Boston which will include upgrades to efficiently handle 4,000+ passenger vessels.

New MOTT trail Applechusetts features Orchards, Cideries, and More-
Leading up to the 24th annual Franklin County CiderDays festival, MOTT released Applechusetts, a guide to apple goods, experiences, and traditions across the Commonwealth. Applechusetts features pick-your-own orchards, farm stands, sweet treats, events, and cideries along with apple variety notes, recipes from local businesses, and hard cider tasting tips. An index and resources section at the back directs readers to MOTT and MDAR web pages for listings, maps, and more. Hard copies of Applechusetts were distributed at Franklin County’s CiderDays 2018, and a digital version of the guide is available on MOTT’s website at massvacation.com/apples.
Speaking of Franklin County’s CiderDays, MOTT also partnered with Yankee Magazine to distribute Yankee’s fall guide and a special food edition at the standout harvest festival. Mark your calendars: CiderDays will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019. That’s 25 years of cider tastings, tours, talks, and so much more. How do you like them apples?

Veritable foodie and water sports holiday corner at the Cape Ann Motor Inn Gloucester side of Long Beach in the summer of 2018.
Water sports galore: Cape Ann SUP returns with their awesome crew ensuring the beach is festive with all that good energy
new this summer:
Salty Frank’s Dogs will be on site Tuesday through Sunday fair weather days, and weekends after Labor Day. The menu changes up daily and goes beyond dogs (lobster rolls, mozzarella sticks, chicken…) One photo shows looking back to his childhood: his family stayed in the first house on the front cottages row. There used to be a store on the ground floor.
Testing the waters this weekend:
The Cow: mobile scooped ice cream parlor frappes, iced coffee and more

Thursday, I’m wired to join Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown at the Rummie. Chris and I have been whooping it up often lately and we have a nice little thing going, musically (see next paragraph). We have a lot of groovie toons and often the jokes fly like under-inflated footballs.
Mr. Mike Clarke, former L.A. drummer and Delbert Mclinton sideman will join us and fill the loose moments with a tutorial on Esalen hair gel. 830 to 1130.
