On a beautiful Wednesday afternoon, Gloucester’s Man at the Wheel waiting for the Great Adventure Man to come through.
We love to think that we are in control of our lives. That we make our own decisions and create our own fate. Our country was founded on this notion of free will and choosing your own fate. But what happens when fate chooses you? When the perfect opportunity you weren’t looking for comes around? How do you say no? The answer: You don’t.

PURITAN HOUSE built in 1810 by Col. James Tappan* is a historic house at 3 Washington Street and 2 Main Street. Also known as: Tappan’s Hotel, Gloucester Hotel (“Tappan’s Folly”), Atlantic House, Mason House, Community House, Capt Bills (1960s-70s), Puritan House & Pub (1977), Blackburn Tavern (1978-00s) *Tappan was taught by Daniel Webster
Excerpt from prior GMG post (read it here) about scenic tours by bike 1885: “And now let’s take our wheel for a short run along our harbor road to East Gloucester, and note the many points of interest on the way. The start is made at the Gloucester Hotel–the headquarters of all visiting wheelmen in the city–at the corner of Main and Washington streets; from thence the journey takes us over the rather uneven surface of Main street, going directly toward the east. In a few minutes we pass the Post Office on the left, and soon leave the noisy business portion of the street behind us, then, e’re we are aware of it, we reach and quickly climb the slight eminence known as Union Hill…” This brick building at Main and Washington now features Tonno Restaurant. Notice the chimneys and same stairs as when it was the Gloucester Hotel. The Blackburn Tavern sign was just marketing; this building has no connection. Blackburn’s Tavern is now Halibut Point restaurant at the other end of Main Street.

Thanks to a gracious Gloucester Police escort I was able to have a front row view of Adventureman’s final six-mile dash from Manchester-by-the-Sea to Gloucester’s Stacy Boulevard. After having followed his journey for quite a while now, watching him run those final miles was amazing. I have lots of video to edit, but wanted to share these photos tonight.
