This winter and spring, the Blue Shutters is helping to celebrate one of the most popular Cape Ann activities of the off-season: birding. The Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce has long organized a winter birding boat trip, and this year a group got together to offer more opportunities for birders -- both veteran bird-watchers and those who might be interested in this activity. These opportunities include a Winter Birding Speaker Series -- and one of these presentations will be at the Blue Shutters on April 2. Other presentations are planned for the Emerson Inn and the Beauport Hotel. Check this Chamber webpage for more information -- there are lots of great articles and information on winter birding. and if you're visiting and looking for a place to stay, let us know. We're offering a 20% discount for anyone who comes to Cape Ann for these birder activities. It's our hope that this might be the incentive you need to give birding a try! Call or email us if you're interested in learning more.

The past year hasn't been the easiest for Planet Earth, but here at the Blue Shutters we made the most of 2021. There were a lot of familiar faces (some we missed in 2020), and we made some progress toward a return to pre-pandemic days. While the world is still not fully back to normal, 2021 was a step in the right direction. As we prepare to close out the year, we thought it'd be fun to share some photo highlights from 2021 -- just some of beautiful scenes and friendly faces from the past 12 months.
Here's hoping that 2022 is even better -- a happy and healthy new year for all our Blue Shutters friends.
