Living in a coastal community as do we here on Cape Ann, the weather plays a formidable role in our everyday lives. I consider each day to be uniquely beautiful, although with a storm approaching that has been given the name “Bomb Cyclone,” the word beauty may not be the first word that comes to mind tomorrow morning.
Yesterday morning as the full Wolf Moon was setting, the sun rose clear and brilliantly on the icy rafts forming at Smiths Cove, sea smoke swirled around Ten Pound Island Lighthouse, and the Harbor was rough with whitecaps.
Today the sun rose over the backshore through a bank of low lying clouds shading the light in hues of violet, red, orange, and yellow and this thought was on my mind, ‘red in the morning, sailor heed warning.’ Fishermen were shoring up their boats, house builders furiously hammering, and the grocery stores were as mobbed as the day before Thanksgiving.
See you on the other side of the storm. Please stay safe and warm ❤

In case anyone else was wondering what this huge barge was doing in Smiths Cove today, it is there to replace two steel eye beams under the Rocky Neck Accommodations, so that it will be there for people to stay in and enjoy for many years to come.

The Faherty’s Gorgeous Penthouse Is Now Available Nightly. You can pull up by boat and stay in this penthouse with full kitchenette and deck overlooking beautiful Smith’s Cove. A Hop Skip and A Jump get’s You To The Rudder or Studio Restaurant’s For Dinner or Drinks. Amy’s Coffee and Cones is just next door for your quick snack or breakfast at Sailor Stan’s.
Because the place had been under construction all summer it hasn’t been advertised so there is still availability even though we are in the height of the tourist season.
Great insider scoop right there baby!
