Wanderer Model776 viewsThis intricately detailed model of the whaling bark Wanderer was built by David Barker and Neale Birdsall, both of Marion, and was commissioned by Mr. Barker for his private maritime collection. Mr. Barker has maintained a lifelong fascination with the whaling ship which dates back to his father’s finding artifacts from the historic vessel floating in the water just after it was destroyed on the rocks off Cuttyhunk Island in 1924.

Trick or Tree?662 viewsThis spooky spectre of a gnarled tree is located at the corner of Mattapoisett Road and New Bedford Road in Rochester. Looking like something that walked right out of the twisted forest in The Wizard of Oz, the tree seems right at home during this haunted season of All Hallow’s Eve.

Ripe for the Picking673 viewsIt’s fall harvest time ... and in Rochester that means cranberries! Although not as prevalent as they once were, several family-owned cranberry bogs and farms are still maintained and thrive within the quaint farming community of Rochester. These ripe cranberries are now “ready for the picking” at the Fielding family farm in Rochester. (Photo by and courtesy of Greta Grundstrom).

Blues From Man in Blue1922 viewsRochester Police Officer Johnny Barnes, who is also the author of two self-published murder mysteries, poses with a copy of his new CD, Known Offenders, which collects both brand new and previously-released material from his heyday as an active member of the Boston music scene. The music can best be described as blues-flavored-rock, akin to The Rolling Stones and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The busy patrolman is also currently working on his third novel, tentatively titled Dead on the Internet. (Photo by Kenneth J. Souza).

New Harbor Patrol Boat750 viewsThe newly-purchased Mattapoisett Harbormaster’s boat underwent final preparations — including official lettering done by Assistant Harbormaster Ken Pacheco — earlier this week at the Town Wharf. The new vessel has been in service for about a week now and Harbormaster Steve Mach said the boat, with a higher enclosed cabin, will come in handy especially during the colder winter months.
