My buddies Peter and Vickie Van Ness are the creative masterminds behind some of the best websites in Gloucester. They are the driving forces behind http://gloucesterma.com/, www.gimmesound.com , http://rudderrestaurant.com/ and Cruiseport’s site-
Understanding the idea behind the www.gloucesterwebcam.com to drive visitors to our local business and community organization’s websites, Peter and Vickie did what I’m hoping others will do with their webcams- embed them on their sites to give visitors a reason to return to their otherwise static websites. If a prospective visitor knows that every time they click on that business or organization’s website they will have the live scenic view of beautiful Gloucester harbor, they will have a reason to return over and over again.
So here is the page on Cruiseport’s site which gives Gloucester Port Parameters for incoming vessels-
Brilliant! Great Job Vickie and Peter!
and great job by Tim at www.GloucesterBytes.com for doing a fantastic job with the webcam install!
If you have web design needs give Peter and Vickie a call at 978-525-9093
There had to be 30 volunteers. People helping out to greet and give directions to the visiting cruisers coming off the Eurodam cruise ship today at Cruiseport.
Fresh Lump Crab, red and green peppers, and bread crumbs. $3.00 beer. Harbor view. I have a feeling The Seaport Grill will be doing some business this summer.
The scene at Cruiseport Gloucester’s newly open restaurant, The Seaport Grill.
Here’s The Horseshoe Bar-
Pan seared sea scallops over roasted creamed corn with red peppers and jalapenos.
I didn’t even know that the Seaport Grill had opened at Cruiseport. Swung by yesterday for a fantastic lunch.
Hand cut fries tossed with truffle oil, fresh parmesan and parsley. This was so rich it could easily be shared by three people along with your meal. Or made a meal unto itself.
Here is one of the life boat’s from the Prince Albert II which was in town this weekend. I’d like to see how it gets lowered into the water. I wonder if it slides right down those rails and splashes down or if it is lowered in a controlled fashion.

I really like how the bar is coming out. You think it will be varnished after or will they leave it natural and oil it?
New railings and glass for the new section of Cruiseport Gloucester

Here is a picture of the pilot house of the Gloucester to Provincetown Ferry.
Here are two of the crewmates Stephanie and Gordon aboard the ferry to Provincetown. They were both very friendly and accommodating, posing for pictures for the blog. This picture is in the galley where they serve food for the two and a half hour trip.
Gordon is a singer and will be performing in Gloucester soon.
