You know you can avoid getting eaten by a shark in Cape Cod by attending Schooner Festival this weekend don’t you. The way I see it, it’s your only option really (unless of course you’re one of those thrill seekers who like to jump in shark tanks and cages with lions in which case by all means head on down to the trafficky Cape Cod).

Effie, the pup at the helm of Ernestina, (ex Effie M Morrissey) will be greeting visitors at the SEMA table from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM Saturday at Maritime Gloucester. This Effie is a Newfoundland, no longer a pup, and there’s no missing her. The Schooner Ernestina Morrissey Association (SEMA) has important news to share on a restoration schedule and subsequent plans to put her back to work. Now owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and operated by the Schooner Ernestina Commission, she was launched as Effie M Morrissey in Essex 120 years ago to fish out of Smith Cove for the J F Wonson Fish Company. We are very interested in talking to anyone with information on her early years working out of Gloucester.
We hope to see you at MG on Saturday!

We Released The Rare Yellow Lobster We Had At The Dock This Morning After It Had Released Its Eggs While In Our Tank.
About a month ago we released the blue one and the quadruple clawed one for the very same reason. A good lesson for the kids to learn about sustainability in the lobster industry. Hated to see that rare lobster leave the dock but at least my girls got to witness it.

Yay! These paintings are gonna see the light of day!
Look left when you wander down Pleasant St. towards Main because these babies will be at the Hive for the month of July. One big painting in the window and then follow the path to the back gallery to see the rest of the work.
The Hive is not only a place looking to involve our community in the making of art, but also is about to start holding regular art shows. Its honestly one of the loveliest spaces to see art in Gloucester and is about to define itself as a regular and relaxed space to see art.
Can You See The Light?
