While out for an early evening walk with our pooch tonight I was unexpectedly delighted to catch the full Wolf Moon rising over the back shore. I wonder whose house that is on Niles and if they knew the moon was rising so picture perfect above their home.full-moon-wolf-moon-brace-cove-gloucester-seals-cape-ann-copyright-kim-smithBrace Cove Harbor Seals lolling about under the moonlight on this unseasonably warm evening

Principal Bacheler Civil War Coat Update Awesome Gloucester Maybe

Charles and George King write with the latest update on the Bacheler Civil War Coat:

Hi guys! Sorry it’s been a while, but we have good news:

We just heard that we made the final of this month’s Awesome Gloucester! This grant will help us get the display case for the coat. We asked for feedback and results were just like the museum choice. If you want to come it takes place at The Pilot House at 7:00pm on Monday, January the 16th. It would be great to have a lot of support! Three different projects will give a presentation and the Awesome trustees will choose a winner. We’re grateful for the chance. We hope we win!

Sincerely

The New and Improved Aqua Room at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort

We’ve been a little bit lost for the last several months while the Aqua Room at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort has been undergoing some pretty sizable renovations.  With the windows and doors covered, exactly what had been going on inside has been quite a mystery. Which, I’ll admit, has only added to the excitement for two little swimmers that I know well.  Finn, in fact, may or may not be guilty of peeking through little gaps in the window coverings to try to get a sneak peak.

Well, the wait is over.  The Aqua Room is now open. And…just in time for a long weekend!  I had the opportunity to take a look around on Monday afternoon and was completely impressed with the changes and improvements that have happened!

Some of those improvements are noticeable the second you walk through the doors. Whiter, brighter walls and new windows help let natural light in. The bar has been built up has undergone quite a facelift making it an even more appealing place to sit with friends. The brand new jacuzzi is gorgeous and the new pool deck is spotless. The pool itself has been completely resurfaced and has new tile.  Colored lights under the water’s surface change from blue, to green, to red, to white giving the pool a sleek and polished finish. The restrooms and locker rooms have undergone improvements including some geared to the youngest swimmers. All of this is easy to spy and looks beyond great.

What isn’t easy to see, but is equally…if not more…important, are the major steps that have been taken to ensure that the aqua room environment and pool water is the best it can possibly be year round.  With a brand new, state of the art, pool filtration system, the perfect combination of saltwater and chlorine treatment for the water, new heating, and even a brand new sound system, they have thought of it all.

We have always loved stopping by the pool for a swim and lunch or dinner.  The Aqua Room has been a staple on our list of easy get togethers with friends and hockey teams…and the absolutely perfect escape on rainy or stormy days.  We clock some serious time there and always have a great day.

Day passes, punch card passes, and individual and/or family memberships are available to fit everyone’s needs and budgets. The pool is open daily from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm. The children’s pool hours have also been extended to Fridays and Saturdays 11am-10pm; Sundays-Thursdays 11am -8pm.

Mile Marker One continues to serve both lunch and dinner at the tables surrounding the pool and now includes new menu items as well. In addition, COMING SOON, will be the newly enclosed year-round River Deck dining area overlooking boat slips and the Annisquam River.

I am so excited to start spending some lazy afternoons in the company of good friends while watching the boys swim and play with their best buddies.  I am thankful for the measures that the owners/management of Cape Ann’s Marina Resort have put into renovations that will help build community in such a clean and safe environment. We are fortunate to have the Aqua Room as an option for family entertainment….now more than ever.
