While There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Beach….

Yesterday, during a miraculous 30 minute session of sitting still at the beach, I fired off this short little post about Beach Pros and Cons….as I was contemplating which beach is “best” for my boys (ummm….and me).

So, today, I invite you to participate in this little summer poll

 

Please comment with additional answers if you’d like as it is impossible to adequately include all kinds of beach experiences!

 

 

 

Sail GHS Summer Sailing Clinics

Hi Joey,

I’m sure you have seen the kids on the Sail GHS Team out in the harbor having a great time racing in all weather throughout the year.  During the summer months, they are offering Summer Sailing Clinics in their

new, C 420 sailboats and even in their newly acquired LaserLevel II Sailing Coach, Guy Fiero is at the helm and with assistance from his very, dedicated team of volunteers.  This is the biggest bargain for sailing on Cape Ann at  ONLY $85 per week, Monday through Friday 8 – 11:30am.  Five days a week and still time in the afternoon to hit the beach!  Kids with some sailing experience ages 10 and up are welcome.  Classes meet at Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center and there is no need to pre-register!  Just bring yourself, your friends, and your life jackets if you have them.  Sailors should arrive promptly at 8:00 am as space is limited.  Discounts available. 

All proceeds from this ongoing fundraiser go to Sail GHS, a non-profit organization to help defray operating costs and provide the youth of Cape Ann and beyond with this wonderful sailing opportunity!

Please contact sailghs@yahoo.com or Guy Fiero at 978-290-7894 with any questions.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Summer Black and Whites From Bill Langer

Hi Joey,
Wow, everyone is having fun with black and white these days — I’ve always loved B&W so I went ahead and spent the dough on NIK Silver Efex, and boy, is it great! Nothing like it for spectacular skies! Here are three pix that I took a couple of summers ago, and just converted.
All the best, Bill

Doug Silva who has been making some fantastic changes as manager at his father’s Topside Grill invited our posse to fill the newly renovated space with our photos.  If you haven’t heard by now from Paul Morrison’s Seasonal Restaurant Openings list,  The Topside will be opening April 1st.

We stopped by Saturday morning to drop off our work and I’ll be posting some images of each of our contributors with their pieces all week long.  You can check it all out for yourself (and get some great grub) on the 1st at Topside grill.

A Taste of Summer

It’s only 3 months away. Once this snow melts, we’ll be able to believe that summer will actually come again with the Red Sox, ice cream at the Cupboard after supper, walks on Good Harbor, and of course, FIESTA! Here’s a little teaser of good things to come! Enjoy!
