editor’s note

Happy New Year If you’re like me, finding the time to stick to a regular exercise routine can seem next to impossible and there are a million ways to rationalize eating a slice of cheesecake when you’re out to dinner. Life is filled with reasons to celebrate, right? But if I’m being serious, the best way to appreciate life is to take good care of your body so that you can enjoy many long and happy days. January is a month when many people resolve to focus on their health and wellness, which is why we sent writer-turned-fitness coach Jacquelyn Mysliwiec out to survey some of the South Shore’s top trainers and gather up their top fitness tips. Her feature “Workout Wisdom” is a great resource if you’re looking for a little inspiration to hit the gym. The cover story for the January issue is our annual “People to Watch” story, which highlights local people who are influencing the way we live on the South Shore. From a new brewery to a musical block party, these are nine people we think you should know. Writer Jennifer McInerney’s story is equally inspirational, as it recognizes the staff and volunteers at the Talking Information Center (TIC). Based at the WATD radio station, TIC broadcasts the voices of volunteers reading newspapers and other publications aloud and most recently started hosting live theater readings by members of the Bay Colony Shakespeare Company in Marshfield. This issue also includes an article by writer Rick Bach, who interviewed photographer Paul Girello to find out why he braves winter weather to take surfing photos. Lastly, you’ll notice when you’re flipping through this issue that we’ve redesigned some of the sections of the magazine. A new look for a new year. As always, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @SSLivingMag to see where we’ve been recently and for a taste of what’s to come.

A Renewed Sense of Style TEXT BY BRIANNA WINTERS Barbie Lynch is the owner of Breakwater Blue, a Hinghambased retail company that specializes in environmentally friendly clothing and accessories. “Conservation has always been important to me, especially because I grew up surrounded by the ocean,” says Lynch. Her signature products are handmade, recycled sail bags. For a custom look, each bag features a nautical design that can be personalized with logos, monograms or colored trims and handles. Most people would never know that discarded boat sails can take up to 1,000 years to deteriorate in a landfill. This is because the sails are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and are made from a combination of materials, including canvas or polyester fibers. “The same qualities that make the fabric detrimental to the environment also make it a perfect material for a sturdy, longlasting bag,” says Lynch. ssliving.com

Breakwater Blue recently expanded its product line, adding eco-friendly clothing and upcycled home accessories, such as light switch plates. Lynch partnered with local contractors to collect old switch plates and polishes them up, adding custom nautical designs and hardware. Keeping with Breakwater Blue’s environmentally sustainable mission, Lynch also organizes beach cleanups that get everyone involved in helping their communities. She also likes being able to teach her daughters the value of hard work. “I love being able to share this experience with them and empower them to follow their own passions,” says Lynch. “If selling one bag keeps one sail out of a landfill, then I feel like I’m helping to make the world a more eco-friendly place.” To learn more about Breakwater Blue bags or to sign up for a beach cleanup, visit breakwaterblue.com.

Conversation Starter

What do you say to a young girl who has lost her mother? The answer still doesn’t come easy to South Shore resident Cara Belvin, founder of empowerHER, a non-profit organization that supports young girls who have experienced the early loss of their mothers. But through a new partnership with HBO’s “The Conversation: Stories That Matter” and the executive women’s group Women@HBO, the discussion will hopefully get a little easier. 12

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

Belvin lost her own mother to breast cancer at a young age, and now, with the help of over 250 volunteers across Massachusetts, she is helping to give other young women the confidence to cope with their own losses and face day-today experiences with positivity. “When I started empowerHER my only goal was to bring young girls together on Mother’s Day because it was such a lousy day for me growing up,” says Belvin. There were only 7 JANUARY 2018 

girls at the first Mother’s Day Retreat, but that number has grown exponentially. Though empowerHER is based in Cohasset, it boasts a membership of over 130 girls from Framingham down to Cape Cod. The debut conversation event was held in a TED-style forum and focused on how daughters are defined and shaped by and, most importantly, how they can transcend the tragedy of mother loss. “We wanted to give audience members and anyone who watches the event online a personal and candid experience,” says Belvin. The list of speakers included acclaimed authors Hope Edelman, author of “Motherless Daughters” (Da Capo Press, 2006) and Claire Bidwell Smith, author of “The Rules of Inheritance” (Plume, 2012). There was also a panel discussion with four women of all different ages whose stories of mother loss spanned from terminal illnesses to sudden deaths. The youngest panelist, Eva Bloche, lost her mother three years ago when she was 16 and talked about discovering all the available resources that organizations like empowerHER bring to this special community of young women. “There are very few resources for motherless daughters,” says Belvin. “I lost my mother at a time when mother loss was a taboo topic. I received Hope Edelman’s book, Motherless ssliving.com

Scituate resident and empowerHER founder Cara Belvin recently partnered with HBO to host “The Conversation: Stories That Matter,” a live event where leading authors and therapists discussed mother loss.

“We stressed the importance of creating a low-pressure environment for these girls because mother loss is often the most deeply personal event of their lives.”

Left to right: Authors Cynthia Whipple, Hope Edelman and Claire Bidwell Smith joined a panel discussion with Cara Belvin (back row) for “The Conversation: Stories That Matter.”

Daughters, as a gift and after reading it I stood taller because I realized that I wasn’t alone in my grief.” That’s what Cara and other event producers, Carlye Rubin and Katie Green of the 2014 HBO documentary “The (Dead Mothers) Club,” hope that other girls realize, too. ssliving.com

The Conversation Series will further change the way that these women and empowerHER unite young girls to share their stories. “We have a responsibility to make sure that everyone can gain something from the conversation,” says Belvin.— Brianna Winters JANUARY 2018

Q+A with Mary Shields Mary Shields, the founder and president of Shields Design Studio in Plymouth and board director for Plymouth 400, recently published the first book in a historical novel series for children. “Barnicle and Husk: The Adventure Begins” takes place in 1620 and tells the story of a crafty cat named Barnicle who sails with the Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower, and later becomes friends with a field mouse named Husk, who lives with the Wampanoag.

LIVING ARTS

What inspired you to write the story “Barnicle and Husk: The Adventure Begins?” The concept for the book has been developing in my mind for over two decades. Growing up in Marshfield, I was always curious about the culture of the local Wampanoag tribe and the terrible injustices that have been perpetrated against them throughout history. On the other hand, I was also in awe of the incredible courage that the Pilgrims must have had to make their voyage to America. Together, these two forces form the beginning of America’s Story, which has always captivated me. Ultimately, I wanted to create Barnicle and Husk to embrace that rich history and bring that sense of fun to the town. Hopefully both the young and young-at-heart can connect with the book and the characters. Is this the first book you’ve written? Yes, this is my first book. The most difficult part of the project was balancing my time between creating the book and managing a busy visual communications firm. I was a newcomer to the publishing world at the beginning of this journey, so I enlisted two key allies: Lisa Akoury-Ross, a local independent author’s publisher, and Bob Ostrom, an illustrator I worked with during my years working with Walt Disney Attractions. Of course, I was backed up through the whole process by my husband and my incredible staff at Shields Design Studio. Without them, I never could have realized this dream of being a published author. Is the book designed to be an educational tool or more of an entertaining story? It’s the best of both worlds! I wanted this book to be both an entertaining read and a learning opportunity. Children will learn about the Mayflower ship from the perspective of its stowaway cat, Barnicle, and about a Wampanoag village from the perspective of Husk, an orphaned field mouse befriended by a young Wampanoag girl. As the series continues, we’ll learn more about Barnicle’s stories and his adventures in the New World. What age range is the story best suited for? The chapter book series is meant for readers from ages seven through ten, although I’m also hoping to release a companion picture book that has been simplified for younger readers. According to state curriculum, students in third grade are meant to learn the “Pilgrim story,” but I wanted to make sure that students could be exposed to the Wampanoag side of things as well. When I was in school, I certainly wasn’t taught the other side. My hope is that after reading certain chapters in “Barnicle and Husk,” 20

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

children will start to ask questions about what they’ve learned in school. I read that you consulted with Chief Flying Eagle, Earl Mills Sr. and Linda Jeffers Coombs to ensure the story was historically accurate. Can you give any examples of scenes in the book that reflect what you learned about Wampanoag culture? I met Earl Mills, Sr. (formally Chief Flying Eagle of Mashpee) almost 20 years ago and he is a person who is very near and dear to my heart. Through knowing him, I’ve come to learn about the importance of traditions and storytelling to his people, which I’ll never forget. Linda Jeffers Coombs provided vital help with reviewing the book content and illustrations to make sure they were as historically accurate as possible. After all, only the Wampanoag could truly understand the history of their people and how best to tell their story. The Plymouth 400 exhibit “OUR Story”: 400 years of Wampanoag History recounts the tragic story of the capture of 20 Wampanoag men from Patuxet in 1614. This was something that I was never taught in school and I believe that all children should be made aware of these events in history. I made sure to include details about these events in certain chapters of the book to accurately portray what life was like back in 1620, while keeping in mind how young my readers are. What did you enjoy most about writing this book? As the creative energies started to stir, the project took multiple corners. Before I knew it, I had created a multifaceted brand. The most exciting thing, I think, was the day the character costumes were physically delivered from Hollywood to the studio, I felt like I gave birth. The 2D creation was now a reality.

1-31 Jan “THE IMMEDIACY OF ABSTRACTION”

New England painters Diane Novetsky and Jo Ann Rothschild are scheduled to exhibit their work in “The Immediacy of Abstraction” until February 18, 2018 at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury. These two artists JANUARY 2018 

whose work is adventurous, intimate, playful and sometimes dark share an expressionist style of painting, an emphasis on the primacy of color, gesture, and process, and a concern for the nuances of “touch” or paint handling. Both arrived at a personal brand of abstraction through improvisation, a work process that has much in common with music. Rothschild saw the grid used in her paintings as corresponding to a music staff. The grid became a way of determining the placement of marks. Novetsky sees her work process as related to jazz improvisation. Tone, contrast and texture are emphasized over drawing. Their work shares the full range of human expression.

KJELD MAHONEY

Craft Brews and Community


BY MARIA ALLEN PHOTOGRAPHY BY JACK FOLEY AND KJELD MAHONEY

The latest brewery to join the South Shore’s vibrant craft beer scene, Untold Brewing opened its doors on October 13. Owned by Scituate natives Matt Elder, his sister, Kristin Greene, and their friend and fellow brewer, Kyle Hansen, the business has quickly become a community gathering place. Untold Brewing has 12 tap lines, which feature a few signature beers as well as a rotation of seasonal options. Elder and Hansen met while working at Georgetown Brewing in Seattle, Washington, so it’s no surprise their affinity for piney, Northwest-style beers can be tasted in their flagship brew, East by Northwest. Some of the other local favorites include Rebecca brown ale and Abigail blonde ale, named after Scituate’s famous “army of two” whose courage and musical dexterity helped deter the British ships from coming ashore during the War of 1812. Guests can sip their drinks in a renovated 19th century schoolhouse that has been converted into a taproom. If folks want to take their beer home, 64-ounce growlers and 32-ounce crowlers (a comically large can) are also available. Untold Beer is also on tap at several local restaurants and bars. The name of the business comes from the Maya Angelou quote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” “Building this brewery has felt like our collective stories being told,” says Greene. “The three of us all had very different paths that led us to craft beer, and a desire to create something we could share with others.” To learn about upcoming taproom events, visit untoldbrewing.com.


For the past few months, Adrienne Rowles has been working hard to pull together a collection of local farmers and artisan vendors for the January 2018 launch of the South Shore Winter Farmers and Artisans Market. Sponsored by the Scituate Chamber of Commerce, the new indoor market is designed to showcase locally grown and crafted products with an emphasis on organic agriculture, conservation and sustainability. The majority of the products being sold at the market are sourced from the South Shore, with a few others from around New England. Food products include homemade jams and pasta sauces from Kiss Flower Farm in Norwell, organic produce from Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset, Hippy Pilgrim gourmet salts, Foxboro Cheese and homemade fudge from the Egypt Country Store in Scituate. The market will also support local artisans selling home décor items, sea glass jewelry, soaps and more. “We believe in giving back, so we also offer a table where local nonprofits based around conservation and agriculture can share their mission and raise awareness for their cause,” says Rowles. The market will be held from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on the first and last Saturday of the month from January to April, at St. Luke’s church, located at Route 3A and First Parish Road in Scituate.

Whether attending ribbon cutting ceremonies at the openings of new local businesses or promoting public art initiatives like Plymouth’s Lobster Crawl, stepping into the role of executive director of the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce seemed natural to Amy Naples. Having served on the chamber’s leadership team for the past 12 years, including as chief operating officer, Naples has helped to organize many networking opportunities, educational programs, community events and business initiatives. “I am honored to take on this role,” says Naples, who was

promoted in October. “The chamber’s work is vital to the region’s business community and I look forward to working with our board of directors to strengthen our partnerships and create new initiatives to accommodate the needs of our members and the communities we serve.” Born and raised in Plymouth, Naples is excited to be serving her hometown and supporting the small businesses that make the community such a vibrant place to live.

It was a love for live music and for their hometown that inspired Quincy City Councilor Ian Cain and Woodward School headmaster Walter Hubley to launch Porchfest Quincy two years ago. Modeled off a popular event that takes place in Somerville, Porchfest Quincy is a free public music event that hosts numerous performances on porches around the city. The festival has grown from 70 bands and 43 porch locations in its first year, to 110 bands and 70 porch locations in 2017. “Porchfest Quincy highlights talented local artists, our beautiful neighborhoods and the great people who live here,” says Hubley.

Art for Everyone South Shore Art Center is a cultural institution beloved by talented artists and art lovers from around the South Shore. But one of the center’s challenges has always been finding ways to attract younger audiences and program participants. That’s where Patrice Maye, South Shore Art Center’s new executive director, intends to make her mark. Maye previously worked as a development director at Artists for Humanity in Boston and also served as the executive director of the Scituate Harbor Cultural District. She is helping to expand programming to make the art center inclusive to all audiences. One of the newer programs being offered is Preschool Picnics in the Galleries, which engages and delights young children with storybooks, songs and sensory-rich artmaking, while giving caregivers a communal experience surrounded by beautiful artwork in the Bancroft Gallery. “The idea is that little ones are invited into a traditionally adult space and that their caregivers have an opportunity to experience our exhibitions without needing a babysitter,” says Maye. “Classes conclude with picnics on the gallery floor under our warm skylight.” To learn more, visit ssac.org.

Across the state, some 30,000 people who are blind or have other disabilities don’t have to feel alone, thanks to the Talking Information Center (TIC). Every day, around the clock, these individuals can listen to the comforting voices of dedicated South Shore volunteers reading printed publications aloud, which TIC broadcasts on the subcarrier signal of the Marshfield-based radio station WATD. Established in 1978, TIC began as a reading service for

the blind, delivered through a special receiver. Over the years, the nonprofit has expanded its reach to a broader audience of housebound individuals with a range of visual and physical impairments, and its volunteer base has grown to 200 readers. “For a lot of people, TIC is a lifeline,” says executive director Jim Bunnell. “It’s rewarding to be able to provide this service to them.”

Poised to celebrate its 40th anniversary in June, the TIC network continues to permeate the airwaves with meaningful content, transmitting the latest newspapers and magazines, bestselling fiction and nonfiction, and even supermarket sales and specials to listeners. In 2017, the organization garnered further acclaim with the introduction of a series of live radio plays that hearken back to the Golden Age of Radio. Eric Joseph, the executive director of the Bay Colony Shakespeare Company and one of TIC’s volunteers, approached Bunnell about the possibility of recreating the style of old-time theatrical programming that was so popular in the 1930s and ‘40s. “We sent a message out to our volunteer base and within 10 hours we had 50 people interested in auditioning,” says Bunnell. To cast the first show, a production of “Twelfth Night,” Joseph recorded each audition to gain a sense of the volunteers’ voices. Afterward, with his eyes closed, he listened carefully to each voice and assigned them to the charac-

ters in the play. He found the process to be very different from selecting actors for the stage. For example, an older woman might have a very youthful voice and be given the role of a young woman. “She may be a senior citizen, but on the radio she’s a 30-year-old.” With the exception of Joseph, the people performing in the series of radio plays are not professional actors. A few may have had some experience on the stage, but the majority of the volunteers are new to acting. After rehearsals and coaching from Joseph, the “readers” transform into actors with a specific set of skills. “On stage, actors have many more tools in their toolbox—movement, blocking, gestures,” says Joseph. “In radio acting, your voice is your only instrument to tell listeners everything they need to know about the character you’re portraying. The volunteers have gotten really good at that.” For that first live broadcast, TIC invited an audience into the studio. “We offered everyone in the audience a blindfold so they could experience what our listeners

experience when they hear the show,” says Bunnell. “Many people gave it a try.” The success of “Twelfth Night” led to a pilot series of three classic plays over the summer: “Sorry, Wrong Number,” “Working,” and “The Lottery.” The group then performed “The Maltese Falcon” in September, a Halloween double-feature of “Ghost Hunt” and “Three Skeleton Key” in October, and a veteran salute with “Johnny Got His Gun” in November. “The plays have been extremely popular with our listeners, especially because they recognize the voices of the volunteers who’ve been reading to them over the years,” observes John Shea, TIC’s production director. “They’ve 44

come to think of them as friends.” Auditions are open to all active TIC volunteers. Over the summer, Joseph was able to guarantee a role to everyone who auditioned, including a blind woman whose script was converted to Braille. TIC plans to broadcast one live play each month, on the last Thursday of the month, without commercial interruption. The commercials, which are also performed live by cast members in an “old-timey” style, are played at the beginning and end of the broadcast. Because its services are offered free of charge to its audience, TIC relies on the generosity of donors and com-

mercial sponsors to maintain its unique programming. Adding radio plays to its diverse programming seemed like a natural extension to Joseph, and he hoped the new offering would yield additional sponsorship opportunities for the organization. “It’s been fruitful,” he says. “And the buzz has gotten people really excited. Everyone feels good about it because it’s fun, creative and unique—something no one else has—and we’re giving listeners something new that they enjoy.” When he’s not acting live on the air, Joseph and the Bay Colony Shakespeare Company tour schools throughout Massachusetts, bringing Shakespeare performances and workshops to students in middle schools and high schools. ssliving.com

Health and fitness goals are common New Year’s resolutions. We think to ourselves, On January 1, I’m getting up at the crack of dawn to start my new workout program. Hasta la vista, pasta and unhealthy habits. Hello transformation and abs! Whether you’re starting a fitness routine for the first time or ratcheting your current wellness regimen up a

notch, taking the necessary steps to reach your goals can be daunting. We decided to tap into the knowledge of several South Shore trainers for insider tips on how to get moving, maintain your momentum and get into the right mindset to make healthy choices. It’s time to take charge in 2018 and kick those bad habits to the curb.

Get Real About Your Goals

Let’s face it. There’s a quick fix for just about everything, which makes it that much easier to moan and groan about taking the slow and steady route—especially when it comes to trimming down, toning up or getting our overall health and wellness in check. So, what’s the best way to stay in the game without getting overwhelmed? “If you start by setting small, attainable goals, you are more likely to feel good about your accomplishments and that will help motivate you to continue towards your bigger goals,” says Bobby Scott, owner and lead trainer at OPEX Fitness South Shore in Pembroke. “When I work with clients, I like to do initial testing, set goals and retest monthly to make sure they are constantly progressing.” Just like putting one dollar a day into a “vacation jar,” over time, your investment becomes one big, happy payoff.

“Compound movements, or multijoint movements, are the most efficient exercises because they challenge your muscles and your entire central nervous system to connect your brain to your muscles,” says Bobby Scott. Instead of just walking, try walking lunges or add an upper body motion to your squats by incorporating an overhead press. Some other examples of this type of exercise would be step-ups, pull-ups and medicine ball tosses.

Mix Up Your Workouts

Changing routines from time to time is key to reaching new physical goals. But most importantly, it is one of the best ways to stay motivated and excited about exercise. “Grab a workout partner,” says Kellie Lynch, owner and instructor at Balance Studio in Cohasset. “It’s always more fun to exercise with a friend. Try a barre class for a mix of Pilates, yoga and dance or add in some yoga fusion (Vinyasa yoga layered with intense ab work, cardio intervals and a relaxing Savasana). Lynch also educates her students on the benefits of cross-training (the name of her studio says it all). “People always ask me what my weekly routine is and which method I like the best,” says Lynch. “The answer is, there is no “best” workout. It’s a mix of everything that I enjoy doing that makes me feel well balanced.”

MARK YOUR CALENDAR Balance Studio and the Center for Integrative Counseling and Wellness in Hingham will be hosting the second annual Renew You wellness retreat on January 27 at Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham. The day is packed with 12 seminars ranging from Pilates and yoga for strength and stability to goal setting and managing life’s transitions. It’s a chance to experience something new and discover ways to architect the happy and healthy life that you deserve. For more information and tickets, visit balancestudio.com.

Work with a Coach If finding the time for a daily workout, healthy eating and mental wellness “me” time seems impossible, hiring a personal trainer or wellness coach can provide guidance and accountability. Coaches can create customized plans that align with individual lifestyle and fitness goals. “I like to do an in-depth assessment with clients, not only testing body composition, movement, strength and aerobics, but also get an idea about their training background, nutrition, sleep and lifestyle practices so that I can help track progress all around with an ongoing, long-term approach,” says Scott. 48

Connect with Mother Nature

When’s the last time you’ve spent some meaningful moments with Mother-Nature? Bobby Scott is a huge believer in finding wellness through an awareness of the physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a daily cycle. “One of the most valuable and free-of-charge mood boosters is to connect with the circadian rhythm—the rhythm of the earth,” says Scott. In addition to taking regular walks on the beach or local nature trails, Scott recommends spending a minimum of 10 minutes outdoors every morning, as close to sunrise as you can. “This will set your body clock,” he says. He also recommends avoiding blue light at night (turning off anything with a screen after sunset— your cell phone, TV and computer) and eating wholesome foods, harvested from the earth.

Group fitness classes attract people from a range of fitness levels, so it’s easy to start comparing your abilities with others. The key, says Amanda Shields, owner of Krigsman Yoga in Hingham, is to stay focused on yourself and forget what the person is doing on the yoga mat next to you. “It’s all about being aware of your feelings in the moment and mentally and physically opening up so you can make shifts,” says Shields. “Some people are intimidated to start yoga because they think they’ll be surrounded by perfect people twisting into pretzel positions. But there is a place for every person in our classes. It’s called a practice—not a perfect—for a reason.”

Make Cardio Fun

The word “cardio” can make even the most fit athletes feel like running in the other direction. Understandably so, as endless treadmill bouts and stair stepping can feel monotonous. “Switch it up and make cardio enjoyable rather than dreaded,” suggests Katie Sheerin, a trainer and boxing instructor at GloveUp Boxing & Fitness in Cohasset. “You can get a quick, high-intensity workout with fun options like dance or, my favorite, boxing,” says Sheerin. “Start once a week, and if you enjoy it, add more classes to your schedule.”

Something as simple as committing to better hydration can be a game changer when it comes to improving your health. “Drink water when you first wake up and track your intake throughout the day,” recommends Sheerin, who makes sure she has enough to drink before, during and after boxing classes. “This seemingly small lifestyle change has big health and fitness benefits, including weight loss and increased energy.” If you find yourself forgetting to hydrate, try setting frequent timers on your phone to remind you to drink up.

Keep the Mind Active Exercise isn’t always about finding motivation to move. Sometimes it’s about finding the inspiration to grow. Daniel Gracie, a fourth-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and cofounder of Juniko in Hanover enjoys helping his students become the best version of themselves and he has seen such dynamic transformations in physical fitness and mental health through the practice of Jiu Jitsu and martial arts. “Jiu Jitsu is not about working out or strapping yourself to a treadmill to lose a few pounds,” says Gracie. “It is about self-evolution and learning to evolve your mind, body and spirit while under physical and emotional duress.”At Juniko, fitness is an art of human movement. Enhancing physical health improves mental health, which in turn fosters the growth of human character. ssliving.com

“I’ve been attracted to the ocean my entire life,” says photographer Paul Girello, who grew up in Florida and moved to the South Shore 12 years ago. An architect by trade, Girello is an avid surf photographer who captures images of wintery beach landscapes and the New England surfer lifestyle for a number of magazines. Ever since high school, Girello has carried a camera and surfboard in his car at all times. A longtime fan of film photography, he went so far as to build a darkroom in the bath-

room of one of his first apartments. “The venting wasn’t too good, so you could only stay in there so long,” says Girello. He now shoots primarily in digital, but still enjoys using 35 mm film from time to time. “In the winter, the beaches are beautiful,” says Girello, who continues to surf and snap pictures, no matter what the temperature is outside. He has been known to venture to the beach when it is 15 degrees out (when the air is colder

than the water) to capture images of “sea smoke” rising mysteriously off the surface of the water. Perfect conditions for winter surf photography on the South Shore might only occur twice a month, so Girello doesn’t like to waste any opportunities. Thankfully, he has enough friends in the local surfing community that he can usually organize photo shoots when the surfing and lighting conditions are just right.

ssliving.com

Girello’s favorite time to head to the beach is immediately following a blizzard. “As soon as the cars are cleared out,” he says, “we’re there.” To see more of Paul Girello’s work, visit Paulgirello.com, or follow him on Instagram @paulgirello.

RESTAURANT PROFILE

Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse A beloved Boston-based restaurant chain is now offering regional Italian cuisine at South Shore Plaza in Braintree. TEXT BY KELLIE SPEED

Thirty-three years after Steve DiFillippo purchased a little restaurant called Davio’s in Boston, the restaurateur’s team announced the long-awaited opening of the ninth Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse location (the fifth in Massachusetts) in Braintree. Located on the lower level of South Shore Plaza in a spot that was once home to Joe’s American Bar & Grill, there’s barely a trace of the restaurant’s predecessor. Extensive renovations include relocating the bar, doubling the patio size, moving the restrooms upstairs and adding private function rooms. There is seating for up to 350 and a chef’s table overlooking a large, open kitchen. On a recent visit, my friend and I were greeted with a basket of warm popovers. Our experienced server, Anthony, who hails from the Boston location, reviewed the

menu with us and pointed out his recommendations and a few of the brand’s most popular dishes. Davio’s menu features raw bar selections, antipasti, signature appetizers and pasta dishes as well as steak and seafood options. Appetizers can be ordered in half-size portions so you can try a few, relatively guilt-free. I recommend starting off with the crispy fried oysters served atop creamy homemade tartar sauce and topped with baby lettuce, tomato and chopped bacon. And you can’t go wrong by ordering the restaurant’s signature spring roll appetizer, which is available in several different flavors (chicken parmesan, Reuben, shrimp cotija and even buffalo chicken). Davio’s has such a cult following for these flaky spring rolls that many local retailers now sell them. My personal favorite is the Philly cheese

steak variety topped with golden onion rings. If you can’t decide on a flavor, a spring roll sampler includes one of each kind. The Bolognese, one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, is a rich and savory combination of braised veal, pork and beef in a delicious tomato sauce, served atop buttery tagliatelle noodles. We also tried the 24-ounce bone-in ribeye, cooked Pittsburgh style (charred on the outside) per our request, with a warm, medium-rare center. The steak paired perfectly with a bottle of Alexander Valley cabernet. Other entrées include a 10-ounce center cut filet, a 16-ounce Niman Ranch double-cut pork chop and an enormous veal chop. For seafood lovers, there are Georges Bank scallops, Atlantic cod and yellowfin tuna. Steaks and seafood are served à la carte, so be sure to try a few sides (large enough for sharing) such as the creamy mashed potatoes, crisp goat cheese puffs, roasted Brussel sprouts or sautéed green beans. Lastly, you want to be sure to save room for the grand finale—dessert. Guests can make a selection from the rolling dessert cart, which displays sweet treats like crème brûlée and chocolate molten cake. Bolognese

Beer for the Horses If you visit the craft brewery IndieFerm in Plymouth, be sure to test out their Black Feather Porter, a smooth, dark beer with notes of coffee and chocolate from the dark roasted malts. The brew is named in honor of Black Feather Horse Rescue, a small nonprofit in Plymouth that strives to improve the health and wellbeing of abused, injured and neglected horses.  “We try to keep Black Feather Porter on tap all the time (one of eight draft lines) and we donate $1 from each pint sold to BFHR,” says the brewery’s owner, Paul Nixon. “So far we have only kegged the Black Feather Porter for draft sales, but our new canning line will be up and running in early January and we will start canning the porter soon after.” Black Feather Horse Rescue owner Darlene Nickerson rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes horses and must pay for hay and grain as well as veterinary care and farrier services on a shoestring budget. To learn more about the cause, visit blackfeatherhorserescue.org. To sample a glass of Black Feather Porter, visit Independent Fermentations Brewing, 127 Camelot Drive, Plymouth, 508-746-4634, independentfermentations.com.

The combination of cold winds and sea spray made for icy conditions. Waterfront hotels and other businesses of the Victorian era were covered in ice patterns. Judging by the wreckage on the ground to the left of the porch, this photo was probably taken in the aftermath of the Portland Gale of 1898.

The Coldest Time of Year BY JOHN GALLUZZO

A look at Hull’s wintery pastimes in days of old. 70

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

While Hull was known as one of Boston’s most prominent summer vacation destinations around the turn of the 20th century, the town also provided sport and spectacle during the shoulder seasons and even in winter. When the weather was cold, the locals turned to anchor-dragging, coot shooting and even ice skating as means to while away the lonely hours when Hull’s year-round population plummeted (about 450 souls in 1890 and about 1,000 a decade later).

When the temperatures began to drop in the fall, the gods of the gridiron took to the field. Football players of the late 1800s and early 1900s (like these young men on Fort Revere’s team) wore baggy pants (no tackling below the waist), slick shirts and big heads of hair. Helmets, at the time, were seen as unmanly..

Gunners hunted for native coot, an aquatic bird with black plumage. In the late 1800s hotels competed for the title of “best coot stew,” though many who tasted the stew for the first time never came back to the table for seconds. Old recipes say to boil the bird with an old shoe and to eat the shoe instead.

Nantasket’s mighty summer steamer fleet, with boats named for local historical figures like Myles Standish, Rose Standish, Benjamin Lincoln and others, went into hibernation each winter. Some went to Quincy for the colder months while others were tied up at the Nantasket Wharf.

Hull’s Spring Street gained its name from the natural spring that created a pond in today’s Village Park. A gate can be closed to allow the park to flood and when temperatures drop Hullonians have their own skating pond. The tradition goes back to the mid-1800s—just another example of the fun one can have when Hull freezes over.

Toward the end of the Hull peninsula, sitting prominently on Main Street in Hull Village, the former residence of John Boyle O’Reilly took on a spooky appearance whenever snow fell. It only enhanced its reputation. O’Reilly died in the house under mysterious circumstances and by 1900 local residents were convinced that he haunted its halls. The house is now the town’s public library.

LAST SCENE HERE •••

Frosty Beach Path PHOTOGRAPH BY LINDA PEDERSEN “When I go out to take photographs, I don’t wait to set things up,” says photographer Linda Pedersen. “I seize the moment.” Mentored by photographer Alison Shaw on Martha’s Vineyard, much of Pedersen’s work is nautical, and she spends a good amount of time exploring the harbors and beaches of different South Shore towns looking for subjects that inspire her to take out her camera. Pedersen captured the image “Frosty Beach Path” in Hull a couple winters ago. “When I took that particular picture, I was driving down by the beach and we had a little bit of snow. It was ice cold that day, but I jumped out of the car to take the pic72

ture,” says Pedersen, who says that she tends to notice things that other people overlook. “I see things a little differently and I hope that my photographs inspire people to go back and pay attention,” she says. Pedersen’s fine art photographs have been displayed at member and juried art shows including the Hull Artists, Hull Lifesaving Museum, North River Arts Society, Plymouth Art Guild, Scituate Art Association’s Front Street Art Gallery and at South Shore Art Center. Her work is also displayed at AZ studio in Hingham and at the restaurant Simply Smiths in Cohasset. To see more of her images, visit lindapedersenphotography.com
