More public art and heart-
Thanks to Janice Lufkin-Shea, Pauline Bresnahan, Hannah Morris, David Brooks Cape Ann Art Haven, Senator Tarr and others, Gloucester and its lobster trap tree and traditions have a place in the Massachusetts Senate President’s Office. Here are photos of Senator Bruce Tarr with Stan Rosenberg, the 93rd President of the Massachusetts Senate, in the Senate President’s Office. First two photos from inside the State House were from Senator Tarr.
David Brooks writes that he hopes the buoy will be a permanent ornament, “but I’m not sure how long it will last. Its made of a small plastic net buoy and plaster. We made it as an Art Haven team and tried to make it look like a kid did it so it fit the character of the tree.” Perhaps a bronze version may be commissioned from Cape Ann Art Haven one day.
There were special ornaments to discover on the tree in City Hall, too, in the rotunda outside the Office of the Mayor.
The wind is really blowing and the ocean is showing who is boss.

What a fun and great event at the Gloucester Marine Railway to benefit the Phyllis A. on Saturday. So many people to thank, Doug and Gloria Parsons and the Board of the Phyllis A. for putting up with me. Amy Beth for all your help with the accounting, Joey for your truck, Cape Ann Giclee for the great grids to hang, The Magnolia Library for grids, The Annisquam Exchange for the card rack, Pauline, from Pauline Gifts on Essex Ave. for grids, Rick Gates for helping with your truck, Walt Kolenda from Cape Ann Auctions for the rolling walls and my husband, Ricky. God love him for putting up with me and my anxiety about this. This show was so much fun to be able to go inside the railway and learn how it all works. Thank you vendors and guests who came to see the show.

Mid morning the sun made diamonds on the ocean and the water actually looked purple. So pretty.
Beautiful lone white rowboat at Magnolia Pier.
It is always a treat to go over to the Railways.
Here are a couple photos. Love the Squawking Seagull.
While at the Marine Railway on Saturday met this nice gentleman named Richard Arnold. He was the last Captain on the Phyllis A. He told me they named the Phyllis A after his sister. Richard stated that he is one of 6 children, five boys and one girl named Phyllis. He also told me he served on the Nantucket Lightship.
Another reason I love visiting the Railways.
