Sails on Parade from my seat

The Schooner Fest could not have had a better weekend!  The city was bustling and it seems like everyone was out enjoying these last few days of summer.  As we all head back to work this week I share my photo dump from my spot on Ten Pd Island…just me, my coffee and the seagulls!

Let the games begin!

As I sit here at my desk overlooking the inner harbor, with my long lens poised toward the ocean awaiting a glimpse of any schooners arriving for the weekend, I share some pics of one of our own beloved Schooners, Ardelle as she headed out in the warm light and the Lannon’s flag reflection on Wednesday.   Looking forward to the sights and activities of this long beautiful weekend!! 

1775 Battle of Gloucester Re-enactment

You don’t have to be a History Geek to be totally wrapped up in the Battle of 1775 re-enactment Saturday morning off Pavillion Beach!   The narrated re-enactment, having the 3 Schooners, Lewis H. Story, Fame and Ardelle, all authentic to the period, and the smell of gun powder gave you a taste of the battles that our Fort defended in her early years.   I’ll be looking forward to reading Joe Garland’s book “Guns off Gloucester.”  Published in 1975, as it told the tale of what Garland wrote as “Gloucester’s resolute role in America’s fight for freedom.”
