Another spot in this beautiful area we live in to stop and relax.
Another spot in this beautiful area we live in to stop and relax.
Little River is becoming one of my many favorite places to photograph. As the sky was so blue and marsh very green it made for a peaceful place to think.
Photographs in this post are from yesterday’s special Beauport Sleeper McCann program, stemming from the Cape Ann Museum Design/Build exhibition. Lorna Condon, senior curator of Historic New England’s Library and Archives, led this tremendous tour.
Neither Sleeper not Hanson family members knew they’d be there together at this tour. Yet members of both families wore the same shoes!
Other special guests included Chris Sicuranza from the Mayor’s Office and the Rev. Rona Tyndall, Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator for the Grace Center of Gloucester. Mayor Romeo Theken also wanted to go.
More pictures coming of these back to back events!
We are on this incredible tour at Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House. Descendants of both Sleeper and Hanson are here! This special programming duet was brought together by two Gloucester institutions, the Cape Ann Museum in collaboration with Historic New England’s Beauport property, inspired by the Cape Ann Museum’s Design/Build exhibition.
Lorna Condon, senior curator of Historic New England’s Library and Archives, is leading the tour. Martha Van Koevering is the Site Manager for the Beauport Sleeper-McCann House.
Just a little bit of haze made the Adventure look a tiny bit ominous, and yet still gorgeous, entering the inner harbor.
Last week over 700 people (including plenty of “Pink Ladies”) flocked to I4-C2 to enjoy “Grease” under the stars. Tonight will be just as beautiful, if a tad cooler. Perfect viewing weather for “Finding Nemo.” Bring non-perishable food to donate to The Open Door Food Pantry and do some good while having fun with the family!

For some odd reason, somebody keeps barricading the kids’ favorite spot. This is creating an unsafe situation. Generations of young children have learned to jump off the pier by being able to jump without having to climb the railing, which makes it a lot harder to learn — and way more scary too. Whomever keeps barricading the jump spot, please remove the barricades. Thanks!

It’s always amazing to drive around town the morning of the Fish Town Horribles Parade and see all the empty chairs and decorations!

So this one is for all those folks who are not home, or moved out of town, enjoy! Now stop by the GMG tent and party with us!!!
Author Claire (Tebo) Alemian, formerly from Gloucester, will release her new novel, “In the Shadow of Light” on June 27th. “In the Shadow of Light” takes place in Gloucester during 1960s.
The story is told through the eyes of Ramona Newton as she looks back from midlife on her early years. By the time Ramona is fifteen, her mother has walked out, her father soon to follow, and she ends up at a place called the Far East, tending bar for Charlie Big and hustling pool to survive. The story reveals the period’s clash of generations and class divides, as well as the struggle for civil rights and the turmoil created by the Vietnam War.
Ultimately, it is a story about a woman in search of her true self and asks the question: Who do you become when everything that has meant the most to you is taken away? Readers entering Ramona’s world will travel alongside a young woman who is challenged, spirited and resilient, and who fights for survival against all odds while searching for the truth.
The novel may be purchased at the author’s website www.clairealemian.com as well as Amazon.com (hardcover & Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook only – search Claire Alemian In the Shadow of Light). Available at Apple iBooks within a week.
