Rockport DPW Removes Long Beach Stairs and Footbridge access

Long Beach, Nov. 10, 2022

This year, several of the stairs had to be dug out several feet for removal.

Sign of winter coming: Saratoga Creek footbridge severed access between Cape Hedge and Long Beach until spring returns.

Sand is covering the rip rap in November 2022, not as high as 2011, and deposited the entire stretch. Sand depth shifts on Long Beach. Read more here in an older post from 2017.

Great review. Read Murray Whyte’s rave here. He found a favorite. You will, too. Must see exhibit at Cape Ann Museum.

“There are magical things here. The array of printed swatches of fabric might be the least beguiling element of a rich process — which is saying a lot, because they’re captivating. The group’s instrument of choice was the linocut block, each of them carved meticulously by hand.”

-Murray Whyte.

Over decades, the women’s collective built a national following for their hand-printed fabrics and wares. In a new exhibition, the Cape Ann Museum looks at the process and precision that guided their handiwork.
