Did you know?

Did you know (of course you did):

That the City of Gloucester is home to one of the finest natural harbors in Massachusetts and is the oldest fishing port on the East Coast of the United States. Gloucester was actually settled soon after the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in the early 1620s, and due to an abundant fish supply, the city quickly grew to become one of the largest fishing ports in the world in the 19th Century. Today Gloucester remains an important fishing port, its working harbor home to a colorful fleet. Since records have been kept, over 5,000 Gloucestermen have been lost at sea trying to earn a living and feed the world.

This is for all that go down to the sea in ships to earn their living and help feed the world. May you always arrive home safely, with a good catch.
