Thought you and your readers would get a kick out of this pic I took last night while out on the Ardelle. Apparently this little guy is a regular on Ten Pound Island. We nicknamed him Rusty.
All the best to you and GMG
ps: keep up the good work!

Here we have Joey with treenails sticking out of his ears. Treenails were used in ancient shipbuilding to secure the planks of the boat, and are still used today by builders like Harold Burnham at Burnham Shipyard in Essex on boats like the pinky schooner Ardelle. These treenails are Ardelle passes, which Joey received yesterday at the gallery from Harold, delivered by Len Burgess, giving him passage on the Ardelle.
Last night was the opening of Madfish Grille and a bunch of us artists on Madfish Wharf went down after we closed our galleries to have dinner, courtesy of the generosity of our friend and fellow artist, Alma McLaughlin, who treated us. I’ve been craving some of Jordan’s sushi, and last night ordered the Thunder, which did not disappoint, and even tasted more amazing than I remembered from last year. The others who had sushi were equally pleased. It was the first night the Madfish was open for the season and there were a few hitches. The bar hadn’t yet been fully stocked so a couple of people in our group couldn’t get what they wanted to drink, and there were no lights on coming down Madfish Wharf, giving the appearance that the place was closed once it got dark. Hopefully that will all be rectified before the weekend. The service was great and the place looks beautiful. If you’ve been hankering for some of Jordan’s (or Sang’s – who is back at Madfish this season and is getting hitched in June – sorry all you gals who has crushes), come on down to Madfish and get your fill.

I wrote this story for WickedLocal.com and it ran last week in the Amesbury News. I was hoping it might run in Gloucester, too. It is about young Zack Teal who is a cremate on the schooner Ardelle but also lives in Essex in summer. He is building the whaleboat at Lowells boatshop but also was the young lad who helped build the schooner Ardelle. He is off to Maine Maritime this fall after graduation. Just thought you might like to post it. Cheers and thanks, – Laurie Fullerton

Harold Burnham, Master Shipwright and 2012 National Heritage Fellow performs yearly maintenance on his “pinky” schooner ARDELLE.
"During the season (May- October) the ARDELLE operates out of Maritime Gloucester daily for public and private sails and also serves as the research and educational vessel for the center."

0630 Oct 9th…. Ardelle is docked at Baltimore Marine Center in Canton close to Pride of Baltimore II and a flock of other schooners who will be participating in the 127 mile Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race to Portsmouth, VA. The race begins Thursday afternoon and the wind that is forecasted may be a bit challenging for some of the gaff rigged boats. Harold is among a lot friends there, and Canton/Fells Point is swarming with cordial volunteers. About 38 schooners are entered. Each boat will have a transponder aboard for tracking. Avid schooner fans might enjoy watching the race all night, keeping an eye on the weather buoys and wind forecast along the route. On Saturday there is a Pig Roast and Awards Ceremony that goes on for most of the day in Portsmouth. More information here:

Ardelle In Washington Photos From Richard P. Blatchford and Live Broadcast of The 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellowships Concert
A cousin in Maine frequently forwards me pieces from Good Morning Gloucester. She sent the one on Capt. Harold Burnham’s voyage to Washington. I went to see Harold and the Ardelle this morning in Washington. Penny (the cousin) said you might be interested in the pictures I took.
Why is a person from Maryland interested in Gloucester and the Ardelle? Well, I was born in Lynn. My dad was Gloucester born and bred. He was James W. and had brothers who lived lifelong in Gloucester. They were Roger (Gloucester police) and Howard (Gloucester postal service). As a boy, I spent many summers in Essex at another uncle’s egg farm. As a result, Essex marinas & boat yards and Gloucester have always been an interest.
If you like the pics, feel free to use them. Just give credit to Richard P. Blatchford as the photographer. :-) That would be me.
