  • Hey Joe !
    Found this blog because of your donation to the Cape Ann Chamber Auction.
    I have visited almost everyday since then.
    I have lived on Cape Ann for 34 years now and every day I learn something new from your blog.
    For example today I bought two Starfish pillows from Helen Parker Textiles on Broadway in Rockport. Saw them on your blog.
    I drive by the place at least twice a day on the way to my shop on the Neck and I never stopped in.
    Eurkea what a find.
    “GoodMorning Gloucester” is great “Hello Cape Ann”. and “Wake Up Rockport” could be two more blogs.

    Keep up the good work you are documenting history.

  • For most of the pictures I use a Sony H3. It is not as good as a DSLR like a Nikon D40 which my wife has but it is a nice compromise of smallish size with a ten times optical zoom. It wouldn’t be practical for me to lug a big camera around and at least half of the shots I take are of the spontaneous kind which wouldn’t happen if my camera wasn’t on my person when something took place.

    I’ve been shooting for a couple of years but in no way do I consider myself a professional. About half the shots I take are with the automatic settings unless I know there is something I want to mess with and I’ll make a manual adjustment.

    There are many far greater photographers than me who have blogs like Steve B, Jay Albert, Jim Barber, Sharon Lowe, and Mark Teiwes. What I think I bring to the local blogging world is a combination of journalistic flair, and I’m not intimidated to get in someone’s grill with my camera. I like pictures of boats as I take my fair share of them and I like pictures of the harbor but the work I like the most is the personal shots of people doing something or up close that can tell a story. I’m in sort of a unique situation because I know so many diverse people between the restaurateurs, fishermen, and artisans around town and I’m also sort of a tech geek so when you put all that together I think it makes for a semi-interesting blog.

    Hey Joey
    I mentioned this to you last week when we met. It appears there isn’t a way to make private comments on GMG. drat.

    Pirates (usually 100 plus) come down Prospect, the stairs at the end of Winchester Court and onto Main Street on their way to the Fort or Stage Fort Park, yelling “to the sea” and making other pirate-ee kinds of noise. On the way back, they walk in the middle of Main Street and annoy the drivers.

    pssst, it’s the Saturday night of Fiesta starting at about 10-11pm.

I have an new program I wanted to let you know about – Maritime Mansions at Twilight, which features a special tours of a sea captain’s home in a different town each month from June – Oct.

    Gloucester will be featured on Thurs. June 25 at the Sargent House at 7 p.m. with “Reversal of Fortune: Judith Sargent & the Fight for Women’s Rights.” Hear how a loveless marriage, enormous debts, and a great love affair led to the fight for female independence. See works by Fitz Henry Lane and John Singer Sargent in a fabulous mansion near the harbor.

    The tour can accommodate 20 participants and it costs $15 per person. Reservations required. More info (tickets, downloable brochure) can be found on our cultural website http://www.escapesnorth.com/maritime_mansions

    Thanks in advance for helping promote this new program.

    A couple of suggestions:
    When making a video—use a tripod–your videos bounce around a lot
    Also for your readers who aren’t in Gloucester—what is fiesta? a party put on by St. Peters church? What are the origins of this party?
    I gather there is a lot of alcohol consumption
    And this greasy pole thing. How long is the pole?
    Is it totally covered in Grease? or just sections of it? Give us a brief history if you can

Do you know what happened to all these paintings? Hopefully they were preserved. We have been unsucessful at locating them, but thought since you seem to have a handle on the pulse of the community, you might know.

You’re doing so much for Glosta and its history. I just stumbled on this site this morning from a link on the GDT page. The first thing I saw here was the song by Earl & Arch, Gloucester till the End. What an amazing tribute to the fishermen and people of this community. I don’t know Mike but he did a great job putting that vid together.

    You’ve got some awesome pics here, too. I’ve always enjoyed photography and just recently made the switch from 33mm to digital. Amazing how far the technology has come in just a few short years. My little Canon SD1200IS can see stars at night that even my own eyes fail to detect

    Anyway, you have a great site going here. Hope you keep it up for a long time to come. I found myself coming back to it several times today to explore it further. Hope your dad and the rest of your family are all doing well. BTW – I had 2 girls also, both of them young adults now. And keep this in mind. Any guy can make a son, but it takes a real man to make a woman. As was explained to me by an old Scotsman. I can tell by your photos you’re a great dad. Keep up the great work.

    a really serious tracking/hunting dog. ( pacifist tho, he doesn’t kill, or end the hunt ). One of the business plans i was about to emBARK on
    is an exercise excursion for dogs, or dogs and humans, led my self and my hounds thru the woods… at an appropriate level of fitness.
    these dogs not only lead a good outdoor work out, but they can show you where many different animals live and the paths they travel, etc.
    We enjoy the beaches, and the woods and quarries daily, and get to know the woods and the people and animals in them better and better. This would be an important element of our excursions.

    Sadly, i think Duncan has gone off to do the research on his own. The two hounds slipped out the back of our Lanesville Home. I woke up to find the little one home on the couch looking dazed 2 days later. Duncan has now been gone a week. He was last seen & heard baying/ singing up by Nelson’s quarry last weekend. He knows how to live in the woods, as he did in Virginia, and i have a feeling someone has seen him and is putting out food in hopes he’ll come. And that he’s eating the food and taking off to track again. he’s like an addict when he tracks. So i’m writing to you
    in hopes that some of your readership may have seen or HEARD him ( very distinctive sing-song-y bay)
    and in hopes that some of them might have good knowledge of Dogtown and the Quarry area that they might want to show off.
    I don’t feel i can just leave him out there alone. I’m hoping some people might want to help me search for him, create some search parties.

    Duncan is such a special dog to me. I’ve lost a lot lately, but at least i still had him. Now he’s running around dog town somewhere and i’ve got to somehow find him before he gets his foot caught in a pile of rocks or something. If anyone has seen, heard or can help make search parties for him please contact me
    at: suburban_seaqueen@yahoo.com ( and should i include a phone # ?)
    Thank you in advance !!
