Kayaking around Gloucester Harbor on Sunday

What a beautiful day Sunday was.  Rick and I went kayaking around Gloucester Harbor and had our lunch on Ten Pound Island, we visited Joey on the dock, Wicked Tuna being filmed and paddle through the west wind and choppy ocean.  It was fantastic.  Also we saw the barge that took down the Magnolia Pier.

Again we are so lucky.

Last Night’s Wicked Tuna Season Finale/100th Episode Party

When the season finale and the 100th episode of Wicked Tuna happen to fall on the same day, National Geographic throws a party!  Possibly they planned it that way.  Who could blame them.

We were super excited to be invited down to Bass Pro Shops at Patriot Place last night to attend National Geographic’s viewing party of the 100th episode and to be in attendance to see who was named winner of this past season.  Congratulations, by the way, to Tyler McLaughlin and his crew on the Pinwheel.

HUGE SHOUT OUT TO WICKED TUNA’S CAPTAIN DAVE AND NANCY MARCIANO

After yesterday taking a group of 70 veterans and their invited guests on a fishing trip aboard Captain Tom Orrell’s Yankee Freedom, Captain Dave and Nancy went fishing today with a ship full of local fishermen and fans.

No greater fan than Michael, who was waiting far ahead of the scheduled departure for an autograph from Captain Dave. Autograph in hand, just look at that ear to ear grin!
