At the State Pier on a cloudy Monday watching this fishing boat leave the safe harbor. The sign that states danger rocks, also makes you think about how dangerous it is for our fishing vessels to fish everyday.
Wednesday was a really pretty day after the snow. Around sunset could not help myself and went to Good Harbor, State Pier and Magnolia Landing.
A flock of seagulls.
Wednesday night the sunset was beautiful. From the State Pier to Magnolia Landing.
Such a beautiful bird at the State Pier on Thursday.
Love going to the State Pier to see the ducks and sometimes seals. On Saturday the ducks were have a great time.
On Friday before the Buoy Auction went over to the State Pier, the harbor was like a mirror. Amazing how the ocean can change continually.
Very interesting reflections at the State Pier.
Beautiful Industry down at the State Pier.

A couple of years ago, because of research I was doing about Gordon Parks in Gloucester and thankfully Joey posted on Good Morning Gloucester, I was able to interview Manny and Joanna Carrancho. Manny and his family spent considerable time giving me a detailed account of earlier events in their lives. They shared treasured historic photos and first hand knowledge and were a delight. Part 2 photographs continue with a town procession from the state pier to the church.
More photographs tomorrow
Good Morning Gloucester is an indisputable platform for outreach and community. A couple of years ago, because of research I was doing about Gordon Parks in Gloucester and thankfully Joey posted on Good Morning Gloucester, I was able to interview Manny Carrancho. Manny and his family spent considerable time giving me a detailed account of earlier events in their lives. They shared treasured historic photos and first hand knowledge and were a delight.
This week I’ll feature photographs from a souvenir picture album in Manny’s collection as they feature Our Lady of Good Voyage and one of the Madonna statues. The photographs are from a booklet: Coronation Our Lady Of Good Voyage, produced with cooperation of the Portuguese Daily News and photography by Hollywood Studio, New Bedford, MA. You will see the Our Lady statue on the vessel Gil Eannes with Bishop Don Manuel Salguiero. Its special arrival is met by a town procession led by Arch Bishop Wright and dignitaries at the State Pier. Twelve fishermen were selected to greet them. Let us know if you recognize family in the photographs. Were you there?
news edit: Brenda Mason Budrow writes that the little girl in one photo is Mary Jean (Ribeiro) Mason, her mom. Thanks, Brenda!
Tonight: the Crowning Feast of the Holy Spirit begins May 9th 2016 in Our Lady’s Church.
