Home for a New Tree in time for the Sidewalk Bazaar

Toodeloos’ Bears, wearing lots of sunscreen,  await the planting of a new tree.  The Old Tree was causing dangerous passage, but in one week’s time  the tree was uprooted, and a new sidewalk put in place, just in time for the Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar coming this Thursday August 6th – Saturday August 8th, to downtown.

Beverly’s Block Party vs Gloucester’s Block Party – Contrast & Compare!

Perhaps it’s worth a trip to Beverly tomorrow to see how they do their Block Parties (info here). There are some differences between theirs and ours in Gloucester, notably that the entire area is fenced and you can walk down the street drinking a beer (or wine).  Music is only on 2 stages and Gloucester’s own Henri Smith headlines the Beverly Bank Stage tomorrow, featuring Sean Jones (new, young chair of Berklee’s Brass Department) and Salem’s Henley Douglas, Jr.

Something new in Beverly for tomorrow is an AFTER PARTY at 9:30pm hosted by The Cabot featuring Beverly born comedian Dave Rattigan, an intimate New Orleans concert by Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours with Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell added to the bill along with other performers from the Block Party and a Taste of Beverly’s Best Late Night Snacks competition with food from Beverly Favorites: The Wild Horse, Gloria’s, The Indo, Freeda’s and Calibasil.

So check it all out, then come back here and tell us what you think . . .

 

 

Rockport Lobster Company Pier Collapses into the Harbor

The pier of the Rockport Lobster Company collapsed yesterday at around 16:00 (4:00 PM).  Luckily the owner was outside at the time when he heard the floor inside collapse with a roar.   Approximately 10,000 ponds of Lobsters were lost, the family owned business has been operating since 1990.

Gloucester Tourist from Harrisburg PA Via Australia

IMG_2968Ron and his lovely wife from Harrisburg Pennsylvania, stopped by to pick up 20 lobsters at Rockport Lobster Company,  before heading back home.   Ron recently visited Australia, and  picked up a “CROCODILE GANDHI” hat made from Kangaroo hide. 

During their stay in Gloucester they watched Captain Muniz from the F/V Lily off load a tuna yesterday, they were hoping to pick up the Tuna Head to take back home as well; however it was long gone.

A most enjoyable encounter with Ron and his wife.

Step on a Crack – Break your mother’s back

“Step on a Crack – Break your mother’s back” or

Step on a Crack and Trees will Fall and Sidewalks will disappear.
