Big Snow Day

Snow has fallen all night long and we now have plenty of it…and it is still coming down; which means we are going to head down…down to Newburyport that is. We won’t be hiking again until Friday or Saturday. The snow depth is really putting a crimp in our plans but that’s winter.

I still have so much to catch up with on the website. Thank you for your patience. I’ll be writing plenty from Plum Island Coffee Roasters tomorrow morning and from Paul Abruzzi’s tonight.

This afternoon Sarah George is gifting me a 90 minute massage. Sarah is an incredible talent with an intuitive touch. She and Susan Atwood (her step mother-in-law) are the two best in Newburyport. When Sarah discovered our corporate sponsorship fell through, she sent in a gift certificate I will take advantage of. If you are in the Newburyport area and looking for a great massage therapist, give her a call: (978)518-1100; or email her:

I’ll check in later this afternoon.
