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.

So Much Spinning

A whole lot of spinning was going on.  Funny….ever since riding the Twirling Strawberries at the Topsfield Fair 7.5 years ago and feeling violently ill from the spinning….only to discover two days later that I was pregnant with Finn… I haven’t been able to handle spinning.  Roller Coasters…no problem.  Spinning, twirling, twisting kiddie rides.  Shoot me.

It is the best time of the year.

Buona Fiesta 2016
