The light on Friday at Good Harbor Beach was so beautiful. Could not stop myself from getting my camera. Looking forward to be able to sit in my chair and taking a swim.
On Saturday, The One Hour at a Time Gang, cleaned and picked up on Pole’s Hill. What a beautiful spot. Here a couple of photos of the view from up there. Even though it was cloudy so pretty.
For more information please follow the following link.

A very huge thanks going out to all of the hard-working folks at GenerousGardeners.org for helping add some amazing beauty to our little island. Keep up the great work!
The most anticipated restaurant opening this year has arrived! Italiano Restaurant and Bar downtown is a must try! My son, Tyler, and I went down on opening night and they killed it! Atmosphere is great, polished decor and a seasoned staff. They won me over and i’m sure they will win you over too.
We had a great turn out for Earth Day 2017. Even with the rain and cold the clean up teams were terrific. Wish to thank everyone who came out and the a big thank you to One Ocean One Love on Parker Street for the cookout. We are also so lucky to live in a community that has great Coast Guard personnel and all our volunteers/

About b.good, growing chain of farm to table ‘real food fast’ healthy burger+ more joints:
“It wasn’t until our crazy family members started running the Marathon in giant burger suits that we realized we actually had the power to make a real impact. (Incredibly, over 82 running burgers have raised more than $146,000 for charities over the last 8 years.) Inspired by what we’ve accomplished with those passionate customers, we decided to start a foundation based on the principles they personify. So, this is funded by the grass-roots and innovative efforts that we undertake together with our customers. And it’s designed so that the people who raise the money decide who gets the money…The mission of the b.good Family Foundation is to use micro-grants to help inspired individuals improve their communities. We believe that the most sustainable, impactful changes are the ones communities design for themselves. So, we give directly to individuals looking to improve their neighborhoods. Then we put the final funding decisions up for a community vote by the b.good family and their network.”
Even on a snowy gray day, Gloucester City Hall looks beautiful.
Love the new logo from the Gloucester Clean City Commission

The arts scene in Gloucester and Cape Ann has so much going on and sets such a high, high bar for the state. We needed a calendar and GMG did it! Reminder: If organizations want to be featured on the essential GMG calendar and weekly arts round-up, they should email their listings to James Eves! Triple check the calendar before planning any major scheduling dates.

Oh what a beautiful day on Friday. Good Harbor was crowded with people enjoying the weather.
Beautiful snow at Stage Fort Park
Thanks to the Holiday Delights Youth Acting Program at Gloucester Stage, I had the lucky chance to spend some time with artist Carol Kriekis. I thought her home and studio were a perfect reflection of her warmth and style, elegant and layered like an Aesthetic Movement interior. Kriekis works in different media, mostly grounded in representation. I saw series inspired by nature and renderings of flowers.
Recently she’s transformed her classic ‘Glosta’ and other Gloucester designs into oval stickers, each with some hand flourish. The potential for art everywhere around us — stickers, hand painted– that had me thinking about aestheticism, too.
