Saturday: Give a Hoot and a Holler to the Blackburners

I’m reading Joe Garland’s The Lone Voyager to psyche Rubber Duck up for the paddle on Saturday. Extraordinary.

7:45AM to 8:45 AM the paddle boards to outriggers set off from behind Gloucester High School. Give the paddlers (and rowers) a shout out as they go by and that would be anywhere on Cape Ann because they go all the way around.  To help, follow the Rubber Duck Tracker clicking here for up to date real time view of where the Rubber Duck is and come on down to Pavilion Beach when the flotilla pulls in.

20×24 Canvas Print Of The Burnham House At Dawn Just Came In

I normally order 16×20 but they offered a 20×24 for only $25 bucks more so I ordered it up. It’s a pretty substantial sized piece.  The colors are ridiculous, the exact reflection of the house in the still water in front of the Burnham House is wild. As a matter of fact The Bean asked me to hold it upside down to see it from that perspective..

So if someone wants it, it’s $150 and ready for hanging.  No framing necessary (the reason everything I do now is canvas framed).

Email me at  It’s available for immediate pick up.



Mystery Girl

 On Thursday, July 12 I photographed a gorgeous little girl on the beach in Rocky Neck where the New Year dip takes place. I don’t know the name of the beach.

I don’t like to publish identifiable photos of very young children without permission of the parent or caregiver. In this case, I got distracted by other subjects and missed my opportunity to speak with the girl’s parents.

Accordingly, I have processed this photo to mask the subject’s identity and hope that her lucky parents will contact me. I have other very attractive images I would like to post on GMG. I assure the parents that there is absolutely no commercial aspect to this request.



I love Madfish Sushi and the Madfish Sushi Guys

I have never been a fan of sushi . . . until now.  Alma McLaughlin took me to dinner at Madfish to celebrate the successful completion of my Kickstarter project, and I decided to try Jordan and Sang’s sushi.  I have to say it is the most incredible thing I have ever eaten.  Even if you don’t think you like sushi, you owe it to yourself to try Madfish Sushi.  In addition to being masterful sushi chefs, Jordan and Sang are also really cute and the nicest guys you will meet.  Don’t take my word for it, try it yourself.  Your mouth will thank you, and it is so good for you too.  Check out their menu here.
