2012 Schooner Festival with Adventure


Tusinski Gallery, Rockport,MA


You’ve been in my gallery to see the ‘catch’ exhibit last yr, this yr., I’m featuring a guest artist to show with me –in my gallery: TUSINSKI GALLERY 2 Main St., Rockport, Ma

I’m hanging her work this Thursday evening so it will be up for the weekend, with a reception Sept.1st, 5-7 p.m.

Folks can re-visit my works, & ck out Kate’s amazing paintings as well ::: she will have several fish paintings that look just swimmingly!

Over ten years ago Kate & I  used to share studio space for 3 yrs. in the former Blackburn Bldg….we had great views of ‘Fiesta’ as you can imagine.

HMS Bounty To Offer Dockside Tours During Schooner Festival


Tracie Simonin writes-

While in Gloucester we will be opening to the public for dockside tours of
the ship during the Gloucester Schooner Festival.  The cost will be $10
per adult, $5 per child and seniors and children under 5 are free.  We
pride ourselves on bringing the ship to new places and sharing the story
of the Mutiny on the Bounty and what it is like to sail a traditional
square rigged vessel from the 1780’s.  Although we are not a schooner, we
were anxious to be a part of the schooner festival that weekend and share
the Bounty with the town of Gloucester!

We would love it if you could share this info on your blog site.  In the
meantime, feel free to link to our website where we too have a wonderful
blog that could get people excited about reading first hand from a crew
member her experiences with sailing with the ship this summer.  Our link

Good morning, Joey:

As a longtime reader and friend of the blog, I know you are heavily into community service. 

Each year, the members of Sandy Bay Engine Company 1 of the Rockport Fire Department raise money for a scholarship to honor the memory of one of our former officers, the late Fire Lieutenant Sheldon Knowles.  Sheldon passed on many years ago, way too young, from the ravages of cancer but is still remembered by our department as a firefighter/EMT who served the town with a pride and a commitment to which we all aspire.

This year, the Engine Company is once again sponsoring a harbor cruise fundraiser on Cape Ann Whale Watch’s Hurricane II.  I was hoping you could post the attached flyer on the blog to assist us with this.

Thanks very much for your help and for doing such a great job in promoting what’s truly the experience of living on Cape Ann .
