Christmas Traditions From Tyler Knight

On my walk thru Seine Field this morning I stumbled across someone’s
electric candle lit path from the night before. The dogs and I
followed it, and found that it led just off the trail to a small
opening. Someone had planted a Christmas Tree and adorned it with
battery powered lights. Next to it lay an engraved stone marking the
person’s tree and the date. There were rose petals and the remains of
a little ambience which got me thinking about the ceremony which must
have accompanied this scene. As a former arborist of 12 years, I
completely encourage this kind of Christmas Tree Tradition. Anyway,…
A Christmas Blessing: May Steph’s Tree Grow Tall and Strong and Greet
Many Sun Rises on the Back Shore.

X-country skiing at Seine Field

Karen Pischke writes-

Hi Joey.

Thanks Joey for more great photos and events in Gloucester! 

I was sorry to have missed Jenny Dee! Can’t wait to catch them. Loving the artwork on GMG! Thanks to you I got in my vote in for SeaArts.

Here are some ideas for those wondering what to do this snowy winter. For once we don’t have to drive hours to ME or NH to x-country in great conditions!

X-Country at Seine Field.

Throughout most of the 20th century, landowners allowed seine fisherman to repair and dry their large fishing nets on this field, which gave this property its name. Today, as part of the Essex County Greenbelt it is one of  many great open spaces in Gloucester. Available for walking, snowshoeing or x-country skiing; great winter activities, all with the sound of crashing waves from Brace’s cove!
