Heather Atwood Covers Rockport’s Harvest Fest


« North Shore Consortium Weekend Picks:

The HarvestFest to Remember

Written by Heather Atwood on October 20th, 2010


This post is a bow to all the brave people who pulled out their long underwear and parkas to make food, beer, music – and to just be there -  at Rockport’s HarvestFest last weekend.  It’s also for those of you right now saying, “wow, this is cool,” and promise to come next year.

Stroll through my thoughts and pictures, but make sure you get to the bottom where you’ll see a cold but happy bunch of bloggers from the North Shore Blogger Consortium, all of whom came out to discuss what blogging’s about – or not – to a packed audience.

Ok, that’s a lie.  We mostly talked to each other, but we were a receptive audience, and learned a lot.  Next year, the house will be packed.
