An oldie from the blog and the poem still holds up I think.
Progress continues on the Birdseye Building, as now we can see the inside, as the walls crumble. Paul Nicastro recalls his grandmother’s house being on the site, along with twenty plus houses before Birdseye. Beach goer relaxes on Pavilion Beach.
When adding the tags for this post the first one I wrote was “Stepping On Legos” That would be a great title for a new blog, don’t you think?
Fishing gear at Milk Island. Milk Island’s a cormorant and blackback seagull nesting ground. Lots of of fishing gear washes up on its lengthy gravel bar running north towards Rockport. By August adult blackbacks start cannibalizing their young – grabbing fledglings by the neck and drowning them, dragging them ashore to pull them apart.

You may or may not know that major rock stars live right down the road in Beverly, MA. CASPIAN, performed at Beverly’s Block Party last year, but mostly they tour the world. On October 18, they’re celebrating their 10th year as a band with a special hometown anniversary concert at The Larcom Theatre. Yesterday at noon, they offered pre-sale tickets to their fan-base, who turn out to be highly loyal — meaning the show is nearly sold out barely 24 hours later (most of the orchestra was sold out within an hour). That’s what I mean when I say, “rock stars.” So if you want to go to this once-in-a-decade event, get balcony seats now (right here).

So this happened at Story Land yesterday. It takes a special kind of person to be this happy all day long….
Devils Island 2: Rogue is the follow up to the 2012 film Devils Island. Again written and directed by GHS Social Studies teacher Shaun Goulart, the sequel picks up where the first one left off. DI2 has many recurring roles mostly played by Gloucester natives as well as some new local faces.
When Jeffrey Taylor (Nick Decoulos) has discovered his wife has gone missing, he goes to the extremes to find her, even meeting up with an old nemesis in Trent Goodrich (Shaun Goulart). Taylor is accompanied in his efforts by his best friend Scott (Bobby Hopkins), Detective Ellis (Frank Militello), Sheriff Jackson (Frank Develis) and a disgruntled police officer (Bo Cleary).
Due out in 2015.
