My son Lars, who now lives in Norway, was here for two weeks of wonderfull sailing aboard the Schooner Sugarbabe. We had a blast for the time he was here. He even got to meet up with one of his teachers, Greg Swenson and a few classmates. Here he is at the wheel of the Schooner Sugarbabe representing Good Morning Gloucester.
Since Rick and I got our Kayaks we are having a great time and it is great exercise. We were out on the harbor and I took my small camera and was able to get this picture.
Being a waterfront community, you’d expect Cape Ann to have plenty of restaurants, pubs & live music venues on the water — and we do. Tonight we also have two that are IN the water — literally. The Schooner Thomas E. Lannon is hosting a bluegrass sunset sail at 6pm featuring local legend Allen Estes with Gloucester’s best bluegrass musicians and Gloucester’s newest schooner, Ardelle, built by Howard Burnham (who build the Lannon) is hosting a sail at the same time with doo-wop/oldies girl group Honky Tonk Women of Glocuester.
Now, there are plenty of choices for those of you who wish to remain on land, from jazz standards, reggae, rock, funk, soul, motown — you name it. See the full live music lineup here.
