Another Schooner Festival is in the Books

So much beauty in one harbor.  It almost doesn’t seem fair….almost.

The day began a bit dreary, but grey skies couldn’t detract from the gorgeousness of the schooners as they paraded throughout our harbor.

Lucky, lucky us.  Thanks to everyone who played a part in another successful Schooner Festival.

Hi Joey,

Attached is a photo I shot at Rockport’s Front Beach this evening, Wed, Aug 27th.  My humble social network is likin’ in… hope you will as well

Hi Joey,

My name is Gordon and I’m a fine art photographer specializing in New England. I thought your readers might be interested in the images from my recent photo shoot around Cape Ann. I’ve created a collection of them with a vintage vibe that I used to try to capture the kind of romance and nostalgic atmosphere of Cape Ann’s fishing community.

I love your blog and follow your updates on Facebook, and I would be thrilled to have some of my photos of Cape Ann featured on it.

Here is the link to the Cape Ann photo set.

Best, Gordon

Thought you may like this photo.  Fairly beautiful of the Annisquam side of town one of the few cloudy days we had this summer.

Still wish she’d sailed in, but worth the wait.

The USCG Eagle


Hi Joey,

I was aboard the Adventure as she joined the Lannon, Ardelle, Coast Guard boats and others to welcome the Coast Guard Barque Eagle to Gloucester on Friday.

She is a beauty!    I hope everyone has an opportunity to see the Eagle while she is in port.  Captain Stephan Edick took the helm for our spectacular sail.  Here are 

some photos of our day aboard the Adventure including the newly renovated fo’c’sle, We had some youngsters eagerly helping to hoist the sails and man the helm. 5

Enjoy the Schooner Festival!

“Beautiful” May Not Do The Eagle Justice

Thatcher, Finn, and I spent a glorious morning touring the United States Coast Barque Eagle.  Gloucester is obviously fortunate to be home to such amazing vessels as The Adventure, The Lannon, and the Ardelle, but…as I explained to my boys…this weekend is like a Red Sox home game in that those ships get to play host to some other fabulous “away team” vessels.

The Eagle being one of them.

I’m not quite sure that “Beautiful” does her justice.

What do you think?

The Eagle is conducting an Open House until 7:00 in the evening. I highly recommend a trip down behind Americold to see her!

Hello there,

My family and I vacation in Gloucester every year, and I stumbled upon your blog after seeing your sticker on someone’s backpack last year.  I very much enjoy all the posts and it helps me be a little less “homesick” for my favorite vacation destination throughout the rest of the year.

I thought I’d share a few photos from our vacation.  We were lucky enough to be on a harbor tour when Nat Geo’s helicopter was filming some Wicked Tuna footage (love that show!)  One photo is of the Pin Wheel in front of Stacy Boulevard.  I didn’t see the Hard Merchandise that day, but the next morning we saw Hard Merchandise heading over to Cape Pond Ice, so I got a photo of my favorite Tuna Boat.  The sunset photo was taken from our Dinner Cruise on the Beauport Princess (which I found out about from your site!)  One of the photos is of a cormorant sitting on the “greasy pole”

I hope you enjoy….feel free to post the photos if you like, just give me credit — that’s all I ask.

Thanks for the blog and Facebook page….I enjoy both…

Have a wonderful evening.

Gloucester Harbor From Beacon Marine / Photo from Anthony Marks


Hi, Joe, I hope you can use a photo or two to give a plug to our budding Sea Scouts Ship Five stationed at Maritime Gloucester. We are doing our best to establish our Sea Scout Ship providing seamanship skills, community service and character building for young men and women ages 14 to 21. Any questions you can call Tom Balf at Maritime Gloucester.

Anything you can do to help this great cause is really really appreciated.

Thank you,

William Taylor
