Blue Shutters Helps Create WebCam Mania in Gloucester
When we launched the Blue Shutters BeachCam this summer, we hoped a few friends of the Blue Shutters -- and prospective guests -- would take notice. In fact, the reaction was beyond expectations -- and now webcam-mania is sweeping through all of Cape Ann. We actually got the idea for a webcam from our friends at Good Morning Gloucester, where we spotted a FiestaCam with images of the carnival at the St. Peter's Feast in late June. Good Morning Gloucester is now leading the charge to get other webcams installed around Cape Ann, giving everyone a look at restaurants, the harbor and other popular spots. You can visit a new site to see the current webcams and sign up for alerts when new live video comes online. But remember, there will always be one Blue Shutters BeachCam, with views of everyone's favorite Good Harbor Beach.
