I Know this sounds so Glosta , But we must be related, My Father Charlie ” Shupado” and uncle Tony “Shupado” were born in Detroit MI. also and moved to Gloucester to FISH. My Dad was on the ST. Mary.

    I was introuduced to your site by my sister-in-law Joanne Misuraca- Randazza and I love it. I was born in Gloucester, returned over the years, and just finished my visit,again. I’m at home now, in Mississippi and missing the beautiful sights. I went to your web-site and again, I was in Gloucester, for a few minutes. Can’t wait for your daily photo’s. I would love one of Kressy (?) beach. That dragon used to scare me as a child but now…not so big. I will forward this to all of my “born Gloucester” but live elsewhere relatives…they will love it!!!

    seeing your beautiful photo collection: Gloucester at Dawn, inspired me to write this poem. (Wrote it while watching your slide show!)

    land at the edge of land
    here, i cannot tell the dawn from the dusk
    waves crashing in the darkness
    sparkles of setting sun
    or setting moon
    the quiet hush

    land at the edge of land
    here is where i die and am reborn
    here is where i am carried away
    by tide upon tide
    so i can create myself again
    and again

    Joe Palmisano referred me to this site. Raised in Gloucester and now in Germany…I look at all these pictures and they bring back so many memories. This is a great site. Thanks Joe and Joe

  9. Carlo says:

    Stumbled upon your site this morning and sat here with a lump in my throat as I looked at your beautiful pictures of my beloved Gloucester. Left there in 1978, but as you can see by my last name, still have many ties there and return to visit as often as I can. Keep up the good work. I will check back regularly and look forward to more pictures.

  10. btw: I can’t find the pics of the dragon at Kressey’s Beach. Anyone have any info on who put it there and when. I remember it being there when I was little, living on Bond Street in the late 50′s and early 60′s.

    • Bill Burr says:

      The dragon was drawn by Bob Stevenson who still has a studio just off main street. I believe a group of us young pre high school beach bums painted it in the summer of 1955 or 1956.

  11. Hi Joe,
    I hope you guys are chillin’ in Florida.
    Slow day here so I am going through all the past stuff on GMG. What a great site! Not only does it give the locals a way to see what they are missing right under there noses but it give us on the other side of the Annisquam a close up on the best shoreline on the east coast.
    Keep up the good work.
    And next time, buy a Webber grill. It will never rot out like your last one!

      I was wondering were you been the other day, did a lot of work for your dad back in the day, welding on the Barnegat

  19. Connie Lufkin Barr says:

    I would like to purchase a print of the photo at the top of the opening page (horizontal , Good Harbor beach)—please let me know terms, shipping etc.
    All your pics are wonderful but this is the most evocative for me.

  20. coolpapa says:

    The pictures are wonderful.What dslr and lens are you using? Our daughter just moved up there September 1

    • Joey says:

      I don’t use a dslr, I use a megazoom semi-compact. A sony DSC H20 and I love it’s portability and versatility for what I do for the blog.

      I think it’s the perfect blogger’s camera because when you are trying to capture moments on the fly, you will miss most shots if you rely on carrying around a dslr with the lenses.

      As someone once said- The best camera is the one you have with you. If it’s too big to carry all the time- well that isn’t going to do you much good when something really cool happens and you are without it.

  21. Hi Joey, are we allowed to post our own photos of Gloucester here?

    Thanks, Tricia

    • Joey says:

      You can add your pics to the GMG Flicke Group Pool and I load them here from there.

      • Thanks Joey, also, how can I load a profile photo so I don’t just have the graphic where the photo could go? I also wanted to let you know that Katherine Richmond and I, both Gloucester based painters, are in Fenway Park from now until opening day painting all of the hand lettered signs around the park. Not sure if that woud be of interest for here on GMG, but my friend Jo-Anne Crawford, another subscriber, thought it might be.

        Thanks, hope you are well, Tricia

        • Joey says:

          We would love to see your pictures inside Fenway. Maybe you can pick up some GMG stickers and take some pics wiyh them from cool places inside Fenway. Did you sign up for a free Flickr account? Once you do you can upload your pictures to it and then join the Good Morning Gloucester Flickr Group where we have a big group of photos. Once you add those pictures there I add them to the blog from there.

          There is also a help section in which you can ask questions on how to upload an avatar on both Flickr and here on WordPress. Feel free to type in any questions you might have in either the wordpress support page (for wordpress related questions) or Flickr help section for questions related to how to do something on Flickr. When all else fails you could type in a question on Google such as “how to upload profile picture wordpress. Or how to upload profile pic Flickr. Usually this is what I do first when I am trying to figure out how to do something on the computer. The help sections are very usefull. On wordpress it’s called support. On Flickr it’s called Help. If you have a hard time finding the help section on Flickr you can try to direct your browser to Google and then type Flickr Help in the search box. If you need help trying to figure out something on WordPress you can direct your browser to Google and type in WordPress Support.

          I hope this helps.

          Looking forward to your contributions

  22. Hey Joey, where can I get some stickers?

  23. Peter Ciarametaro says:

  24. Jamo says:

  26. Richard says:

    Hey joe,

    Love the site bro.Is been A while since I heard from you and Frank. Hope everything is going good with the business.I miss you guys.Keep up the great work.

  29. Sabra says:

    Hi! A friend of mine posted a link from your site today on FB. I clicked and saw the Eastern Point Lighthouse igloo. I was so excited to see that lighthouse. :)

    I was stationed at the CG station there from 1987 to 1990. I have been up in that lighthouse numerous times. My daughter (who is now 22) was born in Gloucester. My Great Aunt Meg sailed out of Gloucester Harbor on the Yankee (featured in 2 issues of National Geographic, one article in the March 1951 issue). She sailed around the world on that ship.

    So, from a Midwest girl (transplanted to CA), having some unusual familial ties to Gloucester, thank you for this site. :)
