This was my vacation week and Mike and I enjoyed an amazing stay-cation, right at home in Gloucester. I can’t believe I have to go back to work on Monday! Today we had an amazing day paddling with Cape Ann SUP (if you haven’t done this yet– what are you waiting for?) and tonight Mike and I spent the evening having fun at the Block Party.
First we had dinner at the The Franklin on their roof deck; which I didn’t know they had until tonight (the food was awesome and was devoured before I took any pics).
We also did some shopping and bought this awesome pillow from Pop Gallery. The pillow is double sided with the Kraken and ship on one side and a New England map/Jolly Roger on the opposite. Perfect for our guest room.
I hope you got to enjoy the Block Party too. It’s obviously a great event to bring the community together and great for local businesses. Any local business that wasn’t involved is just silly. It’s a must-be event!

Just wanted to let you know that tonight we have a beautiful outdoor seating area set up today for the block party!! Come enjoy dinner and cocktails on our patio an watch all the fun stuff going on around you. We will be accepting reservations as well if you want to guarantee yourself a spot. The Gloucester Block Party is a fun time where all of Main street closes down for the public to enjoy. All the store fronts stay open late and set up on the sidewalks. All the rest of the shops and restaurants do the same thing. There will also be entertainment and live music. The city does it 3 times a year (3rd Saturday of July, August, & September) If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely try to come and see what it’s about!! Hopefully see you tonight 🙂
