Cape Ann Auction Sponsored Yard Sale
The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present Fitz Henry Lane’s Gloucester, a guided walking tour, on Saturday, September 5 at 10:00 a.m. Explore downtown Gloucester and discover what it was like in the 19th century when Fitz Henry Lane roamed the streets and painted the views. Tours last about one and a half hours and are held rain or shine. Participants should be comfortable being on their feet for that amount of time. Cost is $10 for Cape Ann Museum members; $20 for nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited and reservations are required. Email email@example.com or call (978) 283-0455, x10 for more information or to reserve a space. This tour will be offered again on September 26.
Fitz Henry Lane was a Cape Ann artist, printmaker and world-renowned American marine painter. With his subtle use of gleaming light, Lane is generally regarded as one of the finest 19th century practitioners of the style known as luminism. The Cape Ann Museum’s unparalleled collection of works by Fitz Henry Lane – which includes paintings, drawings and lithographs – is on permanent display in the gorgeously renovated Lane Gallery, a space fully devoted to Lane’s life and work.
For as long as Passports Restaurant has been open, my husband and I have been regulars!
We have always had an outstanding meal and even better service. Last night after the podcast taping at Cape Ann TV we headed over there for some amazing dinner and great wine!

When it’s early in the morning and you are walking your dog do you really care what you are dressed like?
I definitely do not. I am the crazy lady walking her dogs around the block in Christmas PJ’s
(yes i realize its August I love them and wear them year round)
Do you go out of your way to get dressed and get in appropriate dog walking attire? OR
Do you just roll out of bed throw on a sweatshirt (maybe) and some flip flops and go?

Playtime Stories offers young children the unique opportunity to experience the fun and magic of live theatre as they watch their favorite books come to life onstage as well as the opportunity to join the Playtime Stories Company in fun and interactive workshops relating to the story.

As you all know we don’t take political stances here or endorse candidates but what I’d like to offer is an invitation for any candidate that is running for office in Gloucester to submit a video explaining why they think they are best suited for the position they are running for. The easiest way to do this would be to upload the video to YouTube.
The videos will be released once and placed on GMG at 7PM on the following night that they are received. If more than one video is submitted to me at firstname.lastname@example.org then the first one that is submitted will be aired the following evening at 7PM and the next one submitted will be posted the following evening at 7PM. There will be a link in each candidates post containing their video to email@example.com which will have all previously submitted candidate’s videos.
Once they are submitted they will be added to https://2015gloucestermaelection.wordpress.com/ where all the videos will be available for viewing at any time on the same page.
In the title of the video it should list the candidate’s name- position they are running for and the words “GMG submission”.
If a candidate is not able to create a video to submit, then that speaks in my opinion to their qualifications to hold a position at this level of City Government. If a candidate doesn’t read GMG or doesn’t get the word about this opportunity then that also speaks to their qualifications to hold a position at this level of City Government knowing the reach GMG has.
As always the GMG politics disclaimer- any post on these pages containing a candidate does not imply an endorsement for any candidate. Comments on www.goodmorninggloucester.com for these video submissions on the blog will be turned off for these posts as well.
Hopefully this will serve to help candidates get their message across.
Good luck and thank you to all that participate in the process for the love of Gloucester and making it better.
An integral part of the Monarch film is to show the connection between wildflowers and caterpillars. Emma, Pilar, Atticus, and Meadow were fantastic with the caterpillars and a huge help with the project. We are so blessed to know these bright and curious kids, and their incredible parents!
Thank you Pilar, Atticus, Meadow, and Emma for all your help filmmaking!
This is NOT a small whale-watch or fishing boat. It’s a fully-loaded CRUISE SHIP featuring 2 enclosed decks with dance floors, 3 full-service bars (wine, beer & top-shelf liquor) and an open-air top deck — theatre seating on the first deck, tables on the second deck and couches on the top deck.
The weather will probably be great, but even if it’s not, you can party in luxury and comfort on both of the air-conditioned (or heated if need be) indoor decks with bars and dance floors.
Plus you’ll be partying with 5-time Grammy Nominees Roomful of Blues and cruising historic Gloucester Harbor full of tall ships on Schooner Festival Sunday! Our last three concert cruises sold out, so please don’t be one of those people who calls us begging for a spot we can’t give you. Get your tickets RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. Then you can relax and enjoy Schooner Festival weekend!
You’ve heard about SNOTBOT, right? OK, maybe you’re just visiting, so you haven’t heard about this yet. Let me explain: few other Kickstarter pledges could be better for the future of Gloucester (and anyone who lives or visits here) than this one — really, no kidding. You’ll be helping Ocean Alliance develop revolutionary drone technology for whale research — and there’s no telling what they might discover. But what ever it is, you’ll be a part of it along with iconic actor Patrick Stewart (Jean Luc Picard on “Star Trek”, with a new show called “Blunt Talk” premiering TONIGHT on Starz)!
This is good for Ocean Alliance (which translates good for Gloucester because we want them to thrive here), good for whales, good for our planet, and good for all of us who will benefit from whatever they discover using this new gizmo! So pledge now right here.
These guys made their debut here at The Dog Bar and they have been making the rounds on Cape Ann since. Their last show was at The Harbor Loop Concerts 2015 last Thursday…
Go see them…you will be glad you did!

Thanks for coming to the island and making yourself part of the community. Just a friendly reminder before you leave though. We only have a couple of weekends before the summer rental folks head back “up the line” back to their main places of residence.
Before it all slips away I suggest that you take that evening sail on the Thomas Lannon, The Ardelle, the Beauport Princess or a Harbor Cruise Aboard The Harbor Shuttle, get to that awesome restaurant that you’ve been meaning to get to all summer long but haven’t been to yet, visit the museums you haven’t seen, buy that painting or awesome print that you’ve been admiring all summer long and support the community that you’ve been part of for the summer.
We appreciate your patronage and what you bring to our local merchants. It’s a long winter for a lot of these folks and often times toward the end of the summer people tend to just lounge around but then winter comes and there are so many things you wish you would have done.
The best part of the year is right here- squeeze every last bit of fun out of it.
We’re giving the Blues a root canal this Thursday night with the arrival of Mr. Tim Gartland and co. Harmonica Yeti and smood singer, this guy always puts a smile on my face. And he writes great songs! Into this gaping maw will fly Mr. Tom West, keyboardist extroidinaire, Mr. Chris Rival, on catarrh and the redoubtable eggbeater, Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett. This is a great agglomeration! Make sure your health care professional knows you’re going!
