IMG_0288Andrew Butler and Crew

I only wish we had before photos but trust me when I say the weeds were waste high!

Thank you to Harbor Walk Friend and Volunteer Amy Kerr, who contacted Sean Nolan of Extreme Truck and Auto Repair, who got in touch with Andrew Butler of Leatherneck Landscaping. Sean, Andrew, and a crew member mowed, weed whacked and raked, despite the extreme heat and humidity. They did this on a volunteer basis, absolutely free of charge. Andrew and Sean plan to stop by several times a month to lend a hand and I just can’t tell you how grateful we are for the help.IMG_0289

Amy also reports that Sean and Andrew help greatly with many community clean ups around town.


Thank you, thank you, thank you, and ninety nine thank yous more, to Lynn Bird, Amy Kerr, Andrew Butler, and Sean Nolan for your tremendous help with the HarborWalk.

Open House at the White-Ellery House Saturday August 1st

9ma1-1Historic Home free and open to the public for 17th Century Saturdays

The Cape Ann Museum, which owns and operates this historic property, will open the White-Ellery House on Saturday, August 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Museum docents and staff will be on hand to educate the public about the unique house and its history. The house is located at 245 Washington Street at the corner of Poplar Street in Gloucester and is open to the public at no charge on the first Saturday of the month from May through October as part of Escapes North 17th Century Saturdays. Parking is available off Poplar Street in the field behind the house.

The White-Ellery House was built in 1710 and is one of just a handful of First Period houses in Eastern Massachusetts that survives to this day. Unlike other structures of this period, the largely unfurnished house has had very few interior alterations over the years. Stepping inside today, visitors enter much the same house they would have 300 years ago.

My Joey Dog Experience

joey dog

Personally I love dogs – all dogs.  My worst experience with dogs has been too much drool and a little dirt on my clothes when they jump up on me.  But this morning I had a bone fide Joey dog experience.  I was walking out Eastern Point Blvd. by Three Waters, and this vicious, snarling beast raced out the driveway at me, obviously wishing to leap and sever my juggler vein.  Fortunately, I was too tall for that and he quickly realized the folly of his evil plan and turned and ran away.  Those who walk out on Eastern Point, beware!  I’ve never seen him before, so he must be the new guard dog forThree Waters.

Yes, please

have you seen this little number out in Gloucester Harbor right now?

Private, not chartered.  A quick google search just told me that the yacht belongs to Mark Cuban.  As in the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and Shark Tank fame. I love that he has a basketball hoop on board!
