About the Event

Small-Ship Adventure Cruising to the Arctic, Antarctic, and South Georgia – Marion Hall

Marion's presentation will focus on the culture, ease of travel, weather, animal life, and the various adventures and misadventures she and her husband had when they cruised way up north and way down south.  In July and August of 2004, they traveled to Northern Alaska, Provideniya in Russia, and the Aleutians, following the itinerary of the Edward Harriman expedition of 1899.  Travel was to very remote and rarely seen islands in the Bering Sea.  Then in November 2007, they traveled with the same company to the Falklands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic mainland.  On some of their landings, there was wildlife as far as the eye could see.  Join Marion as she takes us along on what she describes as “adventure travel at its most adventurous.”

Driving Directions to St. John's Episcopal Church, 705 Hale Street, Beverly Farms

[Please note:  Some GPS systems only list Beverly for this address (not Beverly Farms).]

Driving and Parking Directions:

From all areas south or west of Cape Ann, get on 1-95/Rt 128 or Route 1 North in order to reach Route 128 North toward Peabody and Gloucester.  (Before Peabody, both 1-95 and Route 1 diverge toward NH/Maine, while Route 128 continues in a northeasterly direction toward Gloucester.)

On 128 N, after passing exits for Peabody, Danvers, and Beverly, take Exit 48 marked “Grapevine Road” toward Beverly Farms.  Turn right and follow Grapevine/Hart Street (Grapevine becomes Hart in 0.3 miles) for a total of ~1.5 miles. You will reach an intersection (no traffic light) with a large, round stone planter.  Turn right onto Hale Street for 0.2 miles, and then turn right onto Route 127 South, which is also the continuation of Hale Street.  Continue about 300 feet, and St. John's Episcopal Church, 705 Hale Street, is on your left.

Pull into the large parking lot and enter the Parish Hall at the side/back of the church.
