Summer is finally here, and with it comes the latest issue of Cape Ann Magazine, which has started arriving in mailboxes and on local newsstands.
Inside are stories highlighting some of the people and places that make this region special. Features include:
A whole lotta clams: A fifth generation of family is growing into the restaurant business as Woodman’s of Essex celebrates its 100th birthday this summer.
Where the monarchs go: Travel to Mexico with Kim Smith as she follows the majestic, but vanishing, monarchs to their winter grounds.
Shiny, pretty gifts: Mariposa of Manchester leads the industry with its recycled aluminum tableware, much of which is designed by an Essex sculptor.
Boyhood and brine: The verse of T.S. Eliot, one the last century’s foremost poets, is imbued with images of the sea, much of which can be traced to the summers he spent as a youngster on Gloucester’s Eastern Point.
Creating canvas: Meet Josh Bevins, Cape Ann’s only sailmaker.
