Our Funny Valentine

Puddle Jumping (and puddle sitting)!

When our kids were little people they loved Stage Fort Park, and now here we are with Charlotte

Gloucester Girl at the Wheel

The Cape Ann Museum has a wonderful children’s activity room, perfect for a winter day when its too cold to go to the park. Come on by and enjoy!

Caffe Sicilia is super family friendly, too, with friendly faces, yummy treats, and spacious seating. Charlotte had her first bites of cannoli, and of course, she loved it!

WINTER’S COLD MOON

Waxing Cold Moon of December

Friday at day’s end Charlotte and I were walking along our favorite route when she pointed to the sky and said Moon, Moon. I wasn’t thinking to look for the Moon, but there it was, peaking through the clouds. This photo is for her 🙂

Good Harbor Beach Super High Tide

I had an unexpected extra afternoon off with Charlotte so we decided to check out today’s high tide and waves at Good Harbor Beach. In some areas, the tide came up all the way to the edge of the bluff. The waves weren’t high, but the undertow was super, super strong, nonetheless, folks were swimming and surfing in the surprisingly warm water.

You can see in the above photo how high was the tide today.

Sand taste-testing

Foot-print-making

Ssshhhing nobody but me, then time for a quick catnap.

See you again soon beach!
