July 2014–Shuttle Faces

As a season ticket holder for the Harbor Shuttle, I use the shuttle to go to Rocky Neck and or just ride on a hot day.  It also gives me an opportunity to meet people visiting Gloucester, and even local folks.  I  met my neighbors for the first time, even met the daughter of the landlady that we rented from when we came to the USA,   on the shuttle.  Below are only some of the many people I have met.

IMG_3650Harbor Tours provides a tour of six Lighthouse tour on Cape Ann, (Ten Pound Island, Eastern Point, Straitsmouth, Thacher and Annisquam Lighthouses). The tour is far more; it is narrated by Captain Donald Steele; who gives the history of Cape Ann and the many points of interest; you seethe many islands along the coast line, local and private beaches, and some celebrities’ homes along the shore. As a Gloucester native he tells stories of the many storms, that occurred along the rough coast line of Cape Ann.

The tour is a must for locals and Gloucester visitors. In the slideshow you will see the many delighted faces of people on the tour that I went on this past weekend.
