The Dog and I

Lobstermen are starting to gear up for the coming season.  They go through the rope and take out knots.  They clean and repair the traps.  They paint buoys.   It’s coming.  As the water warms the lobsters will be on the move and our lobstermen will be ready to catch em.

Schooner Adventure Sails Into Gloucester 1988 From Ron Gilson’s Collection

While at Ron Gilson’s house I saw this poster sized picture of The Adventure coming into Gloucester Harbor under sail in 1988.  What is interesting about the picture is that if you look at City Hall in 1988 it was surrounded by scaffolding under a reconstruction.  Some twenty years later it was surrounded by scaffolding once again.

Look for the first of a three part video series from Ron Gilson’s house satrting todat at 8:00AM
