EVERYBODY IS READING CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS video By Manuel Simoes

Manny happened to be casually strolling through town yesterday and by golly wouldn’t you know that everyone is so excited about the upcoming Captains Courageous Festival organized by seARTS on March 6th from 9:00AM-9:30PM that he started snapping photos of people reading the classic in anticipation.

Check out the incredible effort Manny put into this video capturing many of Gloucester’s characters-

From Manny-

Here’s the video of over fifty people reading Captains Courageous, at different establishments in Gloucester .  With the storm yesterday, I think most people may have curled up next to a warm fire and did some reading.   Gloucester Coffee Shops, like the Lone Gull and Pleasant Street Tea house, had everyone reading

Train Ride Video From Manuel Simoes

 As we all know we Gloucesterites are known for not venturing off the island too often, and feel that Gloucester provides all that they need.  I recall as a kid, the term “going up the line” meaning we would take 128 South and go over the bridge.  And that was an adventure.  Beverly was usually was my destination, since my wife lived there during our dating years.

 I decided during a trip into Boston to video the trip for my grandkids (6,4,3,and2) who love trains.  It was not a “Thomas The Train” adventure, but provided a relaxing ride watching the sun come up. 

 So for Gloucesterites that want to venture off the island, this is a much better way to go then going up the line, and dealing with the 128 traffic.   This is my Inbound Trip.
