I didn’t do my research on Gloucester’s haunted places before we went on our Canada/New England cruise  last year. I figured we’d take an excursion to Salem the day we docked there. Alas, we didn’t do the Salem route and instead spent part of the day walking around Gloucester.

"Beacon Marine" from Rocky Neck oil 24"x30"

Beacon Marine viewed from Rocky Neck.  This is an oil painting of the view from our old apartment on Rocky Neck.  The apartment was smaller than this one, but i sure got a lot of painting done in that space.  My struggle was to get the color, activate the picture plane and make the ‘box’ of the building.  The box is successful.  It was a real struggle to understand the activity below the doc and putting the boats on the plane of the water.  The painting is oil on canvas 24×30″.   copyright Clarke 2007

After a Short Stay the  Harvey F. Gamage Leaves Gloucester.

It was hard to get Photos of the  Harvey F. Gamage Schooner from Land during it’s stay in Gloucester last week due to the location where it was tied up. I caught it as it was leaving the Inner Harbor and Headed for Portland, ME. The Schooners White Hull and everything around it Glowed in the Setting Sun. Unfortunatley the Sun hid behind some clouds before the Schooner made it to the Paint Factory. That would’ve been a great Photo.

BUMMER, Man! a GMG Contest with a prize

BUMMER!

I lost my favorite Hat! It was a gray Lone Gull Coffee House Hat. I loved that hat.

I won a Gift Certificate to the Lone Gull in one of Sharon’s Contests. That’s how I got the Hat in the first place. So, it did mean a lot to me.

So, I’m looking for a New One. Anyone have any suggestions? If not I’ll buy another Lone Gull Hat.

The Winning suggestion gets a priceless plug on GMG! or a

 limited edition Priceless GMG T-Shirt as seen in the Horribles Parade.

The Hat has to be Cape Ann related. 

Sorry, but Joey won’t allow me to take any freebies, So no Bribes! wink, wink.

Contest ends when I say it does. Also GMG Employees are not eligible (did I spell that right?) Goodluck All!

Thanks!, Paul

Lily Represents at today’s high tide walk!

Ok, so maybe Lily isn’t swimming in the high tide in a bikini and January with the ice floes, but she is representing!

Lily represents with the heavy equipment replacing the sea wall on the causeway in Essex…….

She walks the line, and represents!

And Lily has her “sticka”………………she can park here!

Not too much launching ramp business today in Essex

I think that red dumpster at Essex Marina across the way might be floating!

That dog walks on water!

Would be easy to launch a new schooner today, Harold–I think the water is IN the building!

Today’s view from the bridge across the causeway

So glad Lily and I shoveled out so we could drive down town and check out today’s scenery.  I remember walking down to the causeway from the other side of town when I was a little girl and lived in “South Essex.”   Lil thought it was “so cool” to go down there, walk in the middle of the road and see Mother Nature in action!

Here’s to Snow Days!
