Last night was my first dinner out at a person’s home. Sharon and Chuck King served Southern chicken with rice, and dessert was the view of Gloucester from their deck. Delicious!
He stopped, looked both ways, looked at me stopped again and proceeded to trot past me on his way to the Seine fields.
I encountered this beautiful creature while walking on Eastern Point Road the other morning.
Good morning Kim ~ these photos came from a publication I have titled “Photographic History of Gloucester” published in 1976 by Cape Ann Bank and Trust. Notice the street car tracks ~ next photo you will be able to see the street car. Last night, Joey’s challenge reminded me of these photos which prompted my guess.
That’s my corner, Plum Street! Wonderful fun to see. Thanks for submitting Mary!
Wednesday morning East Gloucester was especially beautiful although, is anywhere not magically beautiful after a new fallen snow? While photographing around the neighborhood, I nearly ran into Frieda on her way into her shop, Again and Again (with lots of terrific gift items for last minute shoppers). After photographing down by the North Shore Art Association I stopped in to say hello to Frieda and Beth at Again and Again (see yesterday’s post).
Leaving the shop, and while admiring Duckworth’s wreath and lovely holiday decor, I met Ken Duckworth outside his bistro. We had a friendly chat and I was reminded of what a fabulous neighborhood is ours. At that moment I was thinking not of the beauty that surrounds, but of our wonderful neighbors.
Dinner at Duckworth’s Bistrot anytime of the year, but most especially during the holidays, is always a very special treat. Plan to go soon for your Duckworth’s fix because I believe they close for several weeks during. January.
This is the first little batch of photos after Tuesday’s snowfall. I don’t like to post too many full-size photos in the same post because it bumps my fellow contributors too far down the page. I’ll post more from Wednesday morning’s after snowfall tomorrow.

Thanks to Heidi Dallin for the tip to go see how pretty the Golf Course looked. I often see Heidi out running and exercising when filming at daybreak.
In searching for their website link, I learned that the Bass Rocks Golf Cub is the BONS (Best of North Shore) recipient of the 2013 award for the “Best Private Golf Course North Shore!”
Sandy at Last Stop Variety in East Gloucester is making the most delicious pumpkin spice doughnuts you could ever possibly imagine. They are sweet, tender, and cinnamony spicy–with no skimping on a dusting of powder sugar–and delightfully warm.
The past few mornings, after standing still for hours and shivering in the cold marsh since daybreak, I have been stopping in at the Last Stop and it has been my good fortune to arrive just as Sandy is taking the doughnuts off the griddle. If you like Russell Orchards apple cider doughnuts, which my family adores, these are AT LEAST TEN TIMES BETTER!
Last Stop Variety is located in East Gloucester at 273 East Main Street, just before the right turn to Rocky Neck.
