Our neighbor Jim Gowing picked this week to visit Peases Point. It was a toss up between heading south to Florida or north to Mattapoisett. Jim – it could be time to flip that coin again! Anyway, he sent me a few pics of today’s Northeasta – enjoy… Continue reading Should have gone to Florida!
Thanks to Mark Lank for a few photos from the Point this morning. As is usually the case, the Point is fairly protected from Northeast gales. My friends at The Bay Club sent me a couple photos of the damage there. I just got these great photos from a friend in Marion. And now a few of the Town Pier… As is always the cases, … Continue reading The Northeasta! UPDATED
This story popped up last fall and while some of you may have seen it, I thought is a good idea to capture it here since sometimes things on boston.com disappear after a while.

Susan and I left Mattapoisett on Sunday. It was tough to leave in that it was a perfect day on Buzzards Bay; 72 degrees and virtually no wind. Saturday we went on our traditional “last walk” with Daisy. Along the way I captured a few interesting pictures. Gowing’s Magnificent Seawall As you may know, Jim and Sara bought Jack Musser’s old house and embarked on … Continue reading Daisy’s Last Walk 2017
I know many of you no longer live here and follow this site as a “virtual visit” to Peases Point. I also know many of you boated on Buzzards Bay when you were younger and miss it. Or you simply pulled your boat in early September and look out at a day like this and say “why am I not out on my boat?” Susan … Continue reading Our Final Cruise For 2017
On Thursday yet another dear Point resident turned 90. Yesterday Lori Crooks’ family hosted a party and invited everyone at Peases Point. My mother Hilda is 94 and Jean Whalen (who was at the party) told me she was 93. Beyond these three, I’m guessing we probably have more nonagenarians at the Point, but that’ll be our secret. Speaking of secrets, what’s the secret to … Continue reading Happy Birthday Lori!
