Four Monarchs eclosing and nineteen caterpillars becoming chrysalises, all in a day! And we have a new batch of caterpillars, just in time for my program tomorrow morning at the Cape Ann Museum. I hope to see you there!
Many thanks to my friend Jan Crandall for the caterpillars. She has a gorgeous butterfly garden and this morning there were dozens and dozens of caterpillars on her Common Milkweed plants.

As the cold front was coming in the clouds were beautiful. As ominous as they looked, we received not much rain or thunder.
A wonderful family from Missouri. We had a great conversation about Gloucester’s history, we even talked about the famous Sea Serpent in Gloucester. I truly enjoyed speaking to this family and hope they come back to Gloucester.

Jimmy T was entertaining the crowds along the Boulevard before the boat Parade this weekend. It happens to be his Birthday today so Happy Birthday Jimmy!
It was a busy night at Lobsta Land but our waitress stayed calm and efficient. I am not sure what possessed me to order the chicken piccata, but I am very happy that I did. It was delicious…lemon and garlic strong enough to enjoy but not too overpowering. And plenty left for another day (my favorite kind of meal). Thanks Lobsta Land!
