Hey Joey, I visited Gloucester once again on Saturday and had great fun.
I sailed in the footsteps of my ancestors on the Thomas E Lannon schooner.
Had a fabulous dinner at Passports and lucked into a block party.
I mingled with locals and truly enjoyed my stay. This is what makes Gloucester so unique.
Now unfortunately I also entered into the redundant mode. When I first entered Gloucester naturally I stopped in at Oakhill cemetery.
The grass was mowed this time which was a plus. However, a 40 ft branch that crashed upon a good size section of headstones and completely engulfed them as you entered the cemetery has kept my in need of maintenance visitation streak alive and well. I don’t know what it is about Gloucester and its lack luster upkeep of cemeteries but apparently they just aren’t important enough for people to care. Either that or people are just have too much fun to pay attention?
I will make the notification calls to Malden Catholic Cemetery division but how long would it remain like this if I didn’t visit ? How long has it been like this and has just been mowed around instead of proper maintenance?
I’ve learned to like Gloucester for what it offers in the present and to see it like it truly treats the past.
