The Bluest #BlueLobster I Ever Saw Came In And Went Out Today At The Dock In #GloucesterMA

I’ve been at the dock for 42 years.  a long time.  I’ve seen probably 6 blue lobsters in my time here but none as blue as the one brought in today and released.


Rare Orange #Lobster Caught By Mike Tufts Aboard The Mighty F/V Degelyse

Our lobsterman Mike Tufts catches a rare orange#lobster. If we didn’t shoot the video to show it moving and alive you’d think it was cooked. He returned it to the sea once he let us shoot the video.

Oh what a day to kayak and swim on Sunday

Rick and I went kayaking on Sunday in Gloucester Harbor, we visited Joey, Rocky Neck, had lunch on Ten Pound Island, met Bridgette and Neil on Ten Pound Island and then off to Niles Beach to visit Felicia and B.J. It was fantastic.

Captain Dave Jewell stopped by Captain Joe’s with his adorable new Labrador puppy Stormtrooper (his young kids are Star Wars fans). He knows how much Joey loves puppies 🙂

This photo from Isabella and Stephen  Bates was submitted as possibly a Peregrine Falcon however, I think it is a Red-tailed Hawk. Please write if you can confirm or correct, much appreciated. Isabella and Stephen shared that the hawk was feeding on the suet when it picked up the feeder in its talons and carried it away!
