BREAKING: SEINE BOAT OARSMAN TAKES OAR TO CHEST, RUSHED TO SHORE

A Coat Guard oarsman took an oar to the chest midway through the military seine boat race today at Pavilion Beach. It looked to happen at the turn. The Coast Guard (Nina) was racing alongside the Gloucester Fire Department (Pinta); the accident appeared to slow the firemen. The oarsman was rushed to shore by the Coast Guard rescue boat. At this time, no additional information available. We hope a speedy recovery for the oarsman.

PASSPORTS WINE DINNER DELIGHT!

We enjoyed yet another outstanding Passports wine dinner event this past Thursday evening, hosted by owner and Chef Eric Lorden and wine expert Matt Rose. Each of the four wonderfully delicious courses was paired with the perfect wine from the Loire Valley of France. And too, my husband and I enjoy so much the welcoming wait staff at Passports. Michael and Sally were our servers and they are always friendly and professional. We especially appreciate their fine and seamless service during the wine dinner events with a dining room bursting with patrons.

IMG_9164My favorite of the wines was the Champalou, Vouvray 2014 accompanying the salad of heirloom tomatoes, Tasso Lardons, Dolce Bleu, fava beans, butter lettuce, and Provencal vinaigrette.

Passports serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. They open at 11:30 am. You’ll love their everyday menu and they also post daily specials on Facebook, which you can check out here. Passports will be resuming their wine dinners in the early fall.

Our son Alex and Chef G rocked Passports wine dinner last night. So proud ❤️

THANKS TO GOOD HARBOR BEACH’S DPW CREW TONY AND MURRAY FOR THE GREAT WORK THEY DO!

Each and every morning the DPW is out there cleaning Good Harbor Beach. They do an absolutely tremendous job. You would be shocked at what people leave behind, and the sheer volume of it. I am usually filming in non-public spaces and it has been an eye opener working at a public beach in the early morning. If you see these guys, please tell them thanks.

Good Harbor Beach heroes Tony and Murray.
