Never a disappointment…

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!

Joey’s new obsession ‘Seafood Paella’


Super K’s Cobb Salad


Ohhhh and what did I have? The amazing Steak and Potato salad but there’s no picture because I dug in and ate some before Joey could stop me to take a picture!

Go see Eric and his team! You won’t be disappointed!

Happy National Dog Day Everyone! Except Joey.

Only a dog owner can appreciate a dogs love. When you get home after a few hours away from them and they are about to explode at the door just for a hug don’t know the feeling. If you want to experience and feel the love and have the time “adopt don’t shop”.

Hopper’s Houses – A Guided Walking Tour

A tour in downtown Gloucester to view houses immortalized by renowned American realist painter Edward Hopper

The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present a guided walking tour of select Gloucester houses made famous by American realist painter Edward Hopper on Saturday, September 5  at 10:00 a.m. Tours last about 1 1/2 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 or call(978) 283-0455 x10 for more information or to reserve a space. This tour will be offered again on September 12 and 19.

American realist painter Edward Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions during the summer months between 1912 and 1928. His earliest visit was made in the company of fellow artist Leon Kroll. During his second visit to Cape Ann in 1923, Hopper courted the young artist Josephine Nivison. He also began working in watercolor, capturing the local landscape and architecture in loosely rendered, light filled paintings. In 1924, Hopper and Nivison who were newly married returned to Gloucester on an extended honeymoon and continued to explore the area by foot and streetcar. During his final two visits to the area, in 1926 and 1928, Hopper produced some of his finest paintings. This special walking tour will explore the neighborhood surrounding the Museum, which includes many of the Gloucester houses immortalized by Hopper’s paintings.

I Think Not

Summer is obviously the season of swimming, splashing, and laughing and to do so families flock to water parks.

So, I started thinking…where are the world’s biggest water slides?

And this is what I found out.

For the record, I actually felt nauseous just from watching this video of Numero Uno. Yikes. No thanks.

Hope you are well.
