All It Takes Is One Visit

Back on October 3 New York waterblogger Brian Luster came up to visit Gloucester with his dad Marty.

Here’s what has transpired since-

From Brian-

Remember the other day when I mentioned that my parents were making an offer on a house in Gloucester?  Well, they have a deal, and if everything goes as planned they’ll be moving to Gloucester in the spring.  I’m having trouble believing it.  My father made that one weekend visit there with me in October, and the next thing I know, he’s moving there.
Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving, and I guess I’ll be visiting again before too long.
-Brian
Here’s Brian’s bike- Representing of course!
Here’s the text from the day after Brian and Marty had left Gloucester for New York-
October 3, 2009

I’ve had the pleasure to hang out with Brian Luster and his dad Marty from A Moveable Bridge.  We went to breakfast yesterday and got to talk blogging and boats and breakfast and food and all kinds of other good stuff like the difference between “partners” and girlfriends and how some people call their long time girlfriends partners even though they’re not gay.

I discovered Brian’s blog last year after Schooner Festival when I had done an interview with some of the crew members on the Lettie G Howard.  There are a group of bloggers from New York who are a pretty incestuous group.  They all post on each other’s blogs and have similar interests.  (sort of the way I comment on Jay, Kathleen and Steve B’s blogs)

Well here are some of the New York Waterfront Bloggers blogs that I think you ought to know about because they post some pretty interesting stuff that is similar to what we’re doing up here in Gloucester.  I normally wouldn’t give these fucking New York people the time of day (especially given their propensity to root for the Yankees, Jets and Giants).  But since I’ve met Brian and Marty and they seem like regular folk just like us I’ll give ‘em a pass on the whole Evil Empire thing.

I’m hoping Brian can organize a field trip of sorts with these New York waterfront bloggers for next year’s Schooner Festival so I can get to meet them and host them for a Beer and Blog event.

Check out these blogs if you get a chance, if you like what we do here on GMG you ought to dig the New York versions too (even if they are FUCKING NEW YORKERS).

Well Marty- Welcome To Gloucester!  Glad we showed you a good enough time that you decided to pick up roots and move on out to the greatest place on earth.
