Daily #GloucesterMA Schooner Festival Update 8/26/15

100_1971

 

Ron Gilson submits-

Ben Pine’s name was a household word in the days of sail- the illustrious 1920s.  Piney said that the Essex built Schooner Columbia “Was the finest piece of wood to ever show her highs out of Gloucester.”  Schooner Columbia was lost prematurely off Sable Island only a few years after her launching.  She was the best that Essex built and Gloucestermen sailed schooner in the history of dorymen.

You can see from the photo Ron took this morning that on the tombstone of Ben Pine it depicts the beautiful Schooner Columbia.


Come down to Maritime Gloucester (23 Harbor Loop, downtown Gloucester) to celebrate the arrival of the schooner Columbia on Thursday, August 27, at 10am. All attendees will be entered into a raffle for a free 2015 Schooner Festival Hat and Schooner Festival T-Shirt! (must be present during the drawing to win)

Help us welcome the Columbia is proper Gloucester style!


Thanks!!!!

Ohhhh and what did I have? The amazing Steak and Potato salad but there’s no picture because I dug in and ate some before Joey could stop me to take a picture!

Happy National Dog Day Everyone! Except Joey.

Only a dog owner can appreciate a dogs love. When you get home after a few hours away from them and they are about to explode at the door just for a hug don’t know the feeling. If you want to experience and feel the love and have the time “adopt don’t shop”.
Visit Cape Ann Animal Aid and I’m sure you’ll fall in love with your BFF.
