Turkey Day, Plum Cove

We were invited to Judy and Ray's Thanksgiving dinner near Plum Cove. Eight birds entered the back yard and Tom and I went outside to take photos, but the turkeys headed for the woods. That may be because Tom was wearing a cook's apron, which scared the daylights out of them. Later, when I saw them travel around the other side of the house, a took a few shots thru the windows. I call this one: "The Turkey we didn't eat." The meal was delicious, and the guest of honor was a neighbor 100 years old.

Plum Cove Sunset, circa 1930 Alice M. Curtis/©Fredrik D. Bodin
I’ve been saving this photograph for a year. It reminds me of Easter sunrise services I have attended, even though this is a sunset. It must have been chilly that day, because the people in the foreground are wearing coats and hats, typical of Easter mornings in the Northeast. The freshwater stream flowing down the beach is gone, and a low tide exposes rocks not visible when the tide is in. Black & white sunsets can be striking. They are abstractions, because we naturally see in color. This photo challenges our minds to fill in the colors: a visual extrapolation.

Note: This post marks one year of my weekly posts to Good Morning Gloucester. It’s been enlightening to work in a new medium (for me), and I’m very grateful to have made new friends in the GMG community of readers and contributors. A special hat’s off to Joey C. and Sharon Lowe, who publish my work, help me navigate unfamiliar waters, and are always encouraging. I look forward to more creative collaboration in the future. Thanks so much!

Snorkeling Plum Cove

Took advantage of this hot weather and did a little snorkeling at Plum Cove. Here are a couple videos, but I did learn two lessons:
1. Put charged batteries in the camera
2. Stay still longer
It feels like you’re not moving, but looking at the video it’s pretty fast. I also didn’t get much shot as the low battery kept shutting off the camera. I hope to get some better videos to share later this week.

We saw a winter skate, baby flounder, hermit crabs, and cunner fish.

The Plum Cove PTC will be hosting its 3rd annual online fundraising auction for The Plum Cove Elementary School in Gloucester, MA from March 14th through March 28th.

Gloucester, MA Feb 1st, 2011 – Expect to find great deals on one-of-a-kind, unique items and experiences at Plum Cove’s largest annual fundraising event. Cape Ann’s favorite local businesses, artists, authors and services have donated items to benefit this, our 3rd consecutive online auction.

100% of the proceeds will benefit the arts and education of the students at Plum Cove Elementary School. The success of our past auctions has allowed us to re-build our playground and make improvements to our library; including the purchase of books and the implementation of an electronic library cataloging system.

About the Plum Cove Parent-Teacher Co-op:

Voted PTO Today’s “Outstanding New Group” of the year in 2009, the Plum Cove Parent-Teacher Co-op was established in 2007 following a major citywide redistricting that left the school without a parent/teacher group of their own. The group leaders and parent volunteers, through an enormous amount of local support, raised funds to upgrade the existing playground equipment, relocate a playground from an old school, update the library and upgrade the school grounds, making them better suited to the new student body.
