Gloucester Doors

This is a beautiful Gloucester Door.

I wonder why some people hang fish that are not caught in our waters above their doors.  Maybe the idea is that a fish is a fish and this is a fish town so any fish will do.  Or maybe the person that owns this house has a deep connection to Florida game fishing, hence the hanging of a Mahi Mahi.  I dunno, but it’s still a really pretty Gloucester Door regardless of what type of fish is hung above it.

  • We have fish hanging all along the fence in back of our house. We started with wooden fish caught in local waters, but soon ran out of options and went to fish from “away” and even fresh water. If I put one above the front door though, it would definitely be a cod, not a mahi mahi!
