Two more reasons to visit Cape Ann (and stay at the Blue Shutters) this weekend -- one new event and one returning favorite. The new event is the Captains Courageous Festival, which will feature special activities throughout the city that celebrate Gloucester's maritime history. This same weekend marks the return of Trails & Sails to Cape Ann and surrounding communities. For the next two weekends, there will be a variety of guided tours, open house visits, hikes, walks, paddles, and other special experiences for all ages, skill levels and interests. All events are located within the 34 cities and towns of Essex County including the Cape Ann communities. No matter what activities you decide to try, the Blue Shutters is the perfect spot to rest up and plan your day...and enjoy some time here and on Good Harbor Beach.

Nautilus Road. Here are some shots of the hundreds of folks gathered at the finish line for a road race to benefit the Beverly School for the Deaf. In case you were wondering, there were plenty of those beach-goers on Good Harbor Beach throughout the day -- which turned out to be a great time to enjoy the sun and surf.

Another weekend in September -- must be time for another wedding. This is the third weekend in the row that we've had a full house of wedding guests. Here some scenes from the day Kim and Matt got hitched -- and what a beautiful day it was. Check out the bride on a motorcycle -- and the school bus that served as a wedding party limo. If you're planning to get hitched, consider Gloucester -- we'll be sure to show the guests who stay with us a great time.

There's a great event coming up in October -- the Essex Clamfest. One of the highlights is a chowder tasting contest (sign us up!). It all takes place on Saturday October 20 -- and we still have some rooms open on that night. Check out this link that has info on this and other activities in Essex, the town just a minutes from us. And then call us to book a room for that weekend!
