Since he was about four-years-old, Thatcher has known that he wanted to start sailing lessons at the Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport as soon as he was old enough to begin.
Old Enough happened this week!
For as much time as I’ve spent on boats, I’m not a sailor, so it blows my mind to watch him out there in the harbor sailing solo.
I have been so impressed with the staff and instructors and I am looking forward to watching Thatch grow, learn, and advance through the ranks in the SBYC sailing program.

A patch of Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) in bloom has a wonderfully sweet honey-hay scent. Look for it growing along the sand dunes, roadside edges, fields, meadows, and where ever there is a neglected patch. And keep your eyes peeled for Monarchs; the earliest arrivals (for the most part) are synchronized to the flowering of Common Milkweed.

A tour in downtown Gloucester to view houses immortalized by renowned American realist painter Edward Hopper
GLOUCESTER, Mass. (July 1, 2015) – The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present a guided walking tour of select Gloucester houses made famous by American realist painter Edward Hopper on Saturday, July 11 at 10:00 a.m. Tours last about 1 1/2 hours and are held rain or shine. Participants should be comfortable being on their feet for that amount of time. Cost is $10 for Cape Ann Museum members; $20 for nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited and reservations are required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (978) 283-0455 x10 for more information or to reserve a space. The Hopper’s Houses tour will also be offered on July 25, August 1, 7, 15 & 22.
American realist painter Edward Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions during the summer months in the years 1912, 1923, 1924, 1926 and 1928. His earliest visit in 1912 was made in the company of fellow artist Leon Kroll. During his second visit to Cape Ann in 1923, Hopper courted the young artist Josephine Nivison. He also began working in watercolor, capturing the local landscape and architecture in loosely rendered, light filled paintings. In 1924, Hopper and Nivison who were newly married returned to Gloucester on an extended honeymoon and continued to explore the area by foot and streetcar. During his final two visits to the area, in 1926 and 1928, Hopper produced some of his finest paintings. This special walking tour will explore the neighborhood surrounding the Museum, which includes many of the Gloucester houses immortalized by Hopper’s paintings.

Ran across my path and up this tree on a morning walk at Eastern Point. I haven’t seen a red squirrel in a while.

The photos were taken 34 years ago, this week, at the conclusion of the 1981 Marblehead to Halifax, Nova Scotia Ocean Race…the setting is the lawn of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, the co-sponsor of the race with the Boston Yacht Club in Marblehead…one of our crew couldn’t make it for the photo…we placed third overall, and the reason that there are 2 trophies is that we received the Lt. Governor’s trophy, also…that trophy is awarded to the highest placing Canadian yacht…I chartered the boat here, but we entered the race through the Lunenburg Yacht Club in Nova Scotia…I was the only American in the crew, everyone else were friends from Nova Scotia…this year’s race, it is only held every two years…will start off Marblehead on Sunday, July 5th.
Ringo Tarr and the Gloucester Fund present another FREE CONCERT on the Boulevard featuring THE RUNAROUND SOUND starting at 5pm at the corner of Centennial and Western Ave (the Boulevard).
This has become a spectacular annual July 3 event drawing thousands of people down to the water for great music, dancing and fun for the whole family.
Music begins at 5pm, breaks for the Parade, resumes after the parade, breaks for the fireworks and continues after the fireworks with a spectacular laser light show.
It’s a terrific way to celebrate our independence.
Here’s a glimpse of the party from last year
“Nothing says summer quite like a quest to get lobster rolls. Now, McDonald’s is offering their own fast food to-go version.
McDonald’s lobster roll
The fast food chain has a limited-time lobster roll on the menu in New England for $7.99. The value meal costs $10.99.
“The return of the Lobster Roll is exciting because we have requests for it every summer,” Nicole Garvey, Boston region spokesperson, said. “It’s a delicious sandwich and we are thrilled to offer this regional favorite at a great value.”
The sandwich, made from North Atlantic lobster, is 290 calories (a lot less than other McDonald’s choices). It will be available through mid-August.
This isn’t the first time McDonald’s is selling lobster. In 1993, the company launched the McLobster nationwide. It was brought back to New England periodically through 2005. The fast food giant’s version continued to be sold in Canada.
Twitter users say they have been hesitant to try the lobster roll, but some who tried it say they enjoyed it.”
