The closest race of the day was the Men’s Race!
Fun’s about to start! Last years Champ and the other daily winners are by the flag, or in the case of the Champ, falling off with the flag.
I ran across this link to a MAPC study, browsing news for work. TOD or Transportation Oriented Developments are getting a lot of talk today and places like Melrose are already trying to capitalize on the idea. I thought to post the following link to the study on GMG as the concept could be looked into for Gloucester and perhaps Beverly. The effort usually takes a zoning overlay district that allows mixed use developments and areas with strong connections to rail and bus systems. Not sure if anyone’s thinking along these lines already.
Follow this link to the MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council) study of stations within the Metro area showing potential for development and capacity. Melrose has now proposed zoning changes in it’s Tremont/Essex Street Commuter Rail Corridor. Some of these include relaxed height restrictions allowing 4 stories, up from 2 stories, greater density, and broadened scope of allowed uses. Great ideas for growth going forward with incorporation of public transportation as a foundation. http://bit.ly/1pWsmKY . IMHO!
Just waiting for the last of the snow to melt, for some a coat of paint, and then summer!!
It must be warm being in the sun and between the window and the shade. As is said sometimes, these shots were “offense by accident”, I saw this guy out of the corner of my eye driving through Magnolia. Turned around and he waited for me…
I signed up for this National Geographic Travel photo seminar. It is next Sunday in Hartford. Check the link for the details and if others sign up maybe we can figure a car pool.. http://bit.ly/1ifiS5L It says Fall Series 2013, but don’t believe that. The link takes you to the registration for next Sunday.
Caught in a wicked storm RoboCop had frozen solid within the ice. Now he could feel the sun and his energy was recharging. Soon he will break free to wreak justice on the not so innocent…His prayers have been answered. Little does he know another storm is already fast approaching which could prolong his confinement!!
Welcome Katrina’s Pub. Hoping it will be as colorful as this!
Beautiful morning to capture the sunrise and I thought I’d add this one seeing the sky through the woods.
Remember that glove you lost yesterday? It’s been found! Now you just need to remember where this is… Your welcome.
After much controversy the results of a special election for the project have been released and it was approved by a vote of 3,978 “Yes” to 3,743. Along with the new interchange will come a new shopping center to be anchored by Whole Foods. Photo at least gives an idea of the changes.
After the storm a little of Winter foliage appeared.. Can’t wait for the green stuff!
CrossFit Cape Ann put a team together from Gloucester to compete in the “Not Your Average Joe’s Competition” in Danvers. (I thought at first daughter Whitney had invited me for lunch..) CrossFit Teams from many of the area gyms came together to compete in weightlifting and rowing events. Competing for the first time in this event and not knowing what to expect, the team placed well landing in the middle of the pack of over about 40 teams.
