Please Welcome Brooke & Tristan Welty- New Gloucester Residents Long Time GMG FOB’s


Tristan and I finally made the move this month after much planning and apartment hunting. We absolutely love it here. We’ve only been in town less than a month, but already we feel at home. Everyone we’ve met has been nice. Literally, everyone. We haven’t met an a-hole yet (though I’m sure they’re around.) As Tristan says, living by the sea makes people saner and more reasonable. I think it’s true. There’s a bit of magic in hearing seagulls when you wake in the morning.

Since we’re still both looking for jobs, we’ve had plenty of time to explore the area. We had a pleasant surprise when we came across a smattering of Cornish road names (Penryn, Penzance, Camborne, Tregony) and stopped to explore Loblolly cove. It looks so much like the Cornish coastline where Tristan grew up that he felt even better about our new home.  We’re looking forward to settling in and getting to know the town and our new neighbors. We’re lucky to have found this place, with all it’s music, culture, history and oh yeah..the FOOD. I haven’t yet worked up the nerve to cook a whole lobster though. I feel bad about plopping the poor thing into boiling water.

And special thanks to Joey, number one because without GMG we probably would have passed Gloucester on by and number two being our unwitting tour guide!

    You two come to my gallery, 82 Main Street in Gloucester tomorrow morning for coffee and cake, and/or Saturday evening for the pre-holiday Stuffies Open House:

  3. Welcome to Cape Ann. Glad you like some of the street names in Rockport.

  4. Sarah Jane says:

    Thrilled to know that a Cornish lad has settled nearby — not that I’m from Cornwall! But my mother was from Merseyside, and we spent many lovely vacations touring Cornwall–including one in the spring of 2012. I didn’t know there was a Penzance in town (or a Loblolly Cove, for that matter). We will have to meet up and share a meal.

    • Thanks everyone for the welcome! I’m sure we’ll make it to some of the Mug Ups. Loblolly cove and the Cornish streets might technically be in Rockport, but it’s a lovely spot. Tristan’s from a little town called Mousehole, just near Penzance.

    Congrats! Same story here. My Wife and I waited a couple yrs trying to find the right place and move here, finally arriving last yr. So glad we did! What a place. Thanks to all the GMG FOBs. This is what affect you have on people. Looking forward to meeting you guys. – Rich

    In many cities, certain industries attract certain ethnic groups over time, eventually shaping the community where they settle. Like the Finns and Swedes who came to Cape Ann to work in the quarries or the Sicilians and Portuguese who came here to fish. Now we have another magnet drawing people here who will shape our community: Good Morning Gloucester! A scary thought :-)
