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.

I’ve received emails regarding my Dad’s Paintings and if they are for sale. Now that the weather is better I will be able to show them to anyone interested in purchasing. I have many left that are just sitting in the storage unit not being enjoyed. There are just so many that can hang on my walls. The sizes of the paintings range between 5″x7″ and up. The price range is $75.00 and up.
Here are some photos of some of the paintings that are available.

From the Urban Dictionary;
To pay a price that you deem high or unfair, but failing to pay the price often results in dire consequences.
Based on the story of the Pied Piper, who removed the rats from a town, and when not paid, he took their children instead!

My name is Lukas Struppe and I am a student at Gloucester High School. My friend, Matilda Grow, have produced a short documentary on the influence the waterfront has on Gloucester’s culture. We were wondering if you could share it to the rest of Gloucester for us through your website. If you could let me know of your decision of posting it or not that would be great, but I will send the link to you anyway right now.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
AUCTIONS END MONDAY AT 3PM

The Rockport Transfer Station has a swap shop for people and one for seagulls. People take books, furniture, and what-have-you. Seagulls gladly take as much as they can eat. Both reduce (by weight) the town’s waste disposal bill. The lucky birds don’t have to pay a dump fee.
I swear you couldn’t dream up this scene to paint it just the way it was at that very moment when I snapped the shot in between offloading boats.
You couldn’t have dreamed up the clouds or the sun breaking through at just the right angle to lead straight down the harbor to our dock. You couldn’t have dreamed up the lobster boats waiting to offload at just the right perpendicular locations to frame the shot on either side of the lobster boat’s mast that was tied up at the dock. Picture perfect.
Sometimes amid the madness you don’t really have time to take it all in because you’re ass deep in work but that one capture you managed to fire off brings it all back and reminds you that yes indeed, it wasn’t a dream.
See that white plastic one in the middle of the pile? They came out with those about 20 years ago. Useless. They only hold about half the bait. Nice in theory but if you wanna get the job done they suck. Old school aluminum shovels are the weapon of choice. Excellent for snow removal as well. See the cracks? That’s about what it looks like inside my lower back from all the years of shoveling.
