Community Photos 8/2/12

Hi Joey,

    Fred Bodin suggested sending you a few pictures from the 2012 Annisquam Sea Fair.  We came up from the South Shore to spend the day there, and discover this charm of this little village.  What a beautiful spot! Could have just spent the day down by the boats and bridge, lol, but the Fair itself was wonderful and the people so welcoming!  From the books for sale, the waterdunk, white elephant table to the food–awesome crabmeat roll and onions rings – everything was just perfect small town Americana at its best!  Annisquam is so beautiful, and the gardens at every turn are just breathtaking! So happy we made the trek north for this small town fair! Loved it!
    Photos are 1. Annisquam Bridge  2, a great old fishing boat   3. a handsome dog I met named Max   4.the Sea Fair main area,   5 and 7 gorgeous flowers for sale and 6.the Annisquam Art gallery with the bustle of crowds in the background.        

     Spent the rest of the day down on Main Street, visiting some great antique and books stores. Love Gloucester!

Take Care and good luck with all that you are doing for Gloucester!

Hi Joey,

     Here’s a few of the fair taken by Kate Conway, another South Bostonian – Fred Bodin told her to send a couple of pictures your way as well. Since Kate is in the middle of a move, she asked me to send them for her.  We usually travel around in a pair – picking a new spot/ location each Saturday – spend the day taking photos, eating at one of the restaurants, and walking around the location to get the feel for it. We do a little write up at the end of the day, and that ends up on our facebook pages. We try to send on whatever photos to business owners/ restaurants etc.  We will soon be turning into a blog.

     The Annisquam Fair was our third trip to Gloucester – something about the place reminds us both of South Boston – the neighborhood feel, the waterfront, the people, the good restaurants, and the pride in community we have come across there.  I have to say, you don’t always get that sense when you go into other communities. So, we’ll be back!  Use the photos or not as you see fit. Just wanted you to know how much we love the place!               Thanks, Gayle White


Spirit of Massachusetts Clearing the Breakwater From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joey,

I was fortunate enough to catch the Spirit of Massachusetts coming into the Harbor last week.  I noticed she’s tied up at Maritime Gloucester while she’s here.

a quick visit to Gloucester on Saturday April 21, 2012

My friend, Kate, and I visited Gloucester last Saturday, and had the good fortune to walk through Fredrik Bodin’s Historic Photos Shop. Loved the shop! Fred Bodin was so informative about the area, and made sure we knew about your facebook and blog site. Very impressive! We also visited Jeff Weaver’s Art Gallery, Topside Grille for a sandwich, and Fisherman’s Outfitter’s (my brother’s store). We were able to take a quick ride up along the ?East Point along the water before heading back to South Boston. We didn’t get to see a fraction of Gloucester, so we’ll be back. In the meantime, it’s great to have your pages and pictures so we know where to visit when we come back. What a great place! Gayle White       including a couple of pics – one is Fredrik Bodin, one is John White (fisherman’s outfitter) and last is one shot along ?East Point. Can’t wait to come back again!
