Sunset Swim

We’re having a heat wave,

A tropical heat wave,

The temperature’s rising,

It isn’t surprising,

She certainly can-can.

First day of summer and first swim of the season!  Last night we packed a picnic and went for a swim–the perfect antidote to a heat wave. Tonight, more of the same. We’re so fortunate to live in Gloucester, moments away from any number of beautiful beaches!

  • Beautiful photos– you sure captured the moment! Love the white heron and I think that’s us, with Joey and family on the Lannon, sailing in the background. We saw the elegant sunset, too! Agree– no finer place to live, summer or winter!


    • oops! thought it was a heron — sorry, Kim, but I don’t know the difference between an egret and a heron. . . am sure that you do tho — and I hope to learn. .. . great photos of the stillness of the sunset evening. .. .


  • just came back from the beach it was awesome


  • And it really does look like those beautiful photos here, and everywhere on Cape Ann.


  • Thank you Liz, Donna, and Fred–so amazing that we can go for a sunrise walk at Good Harbor and a sunset swim at Niles!! Yes Liz, same night–same elegant sunset!
