Adventure Takes First Sail With All Sails Up Photos From Len Burgess

Listen, you can put all that talk around town that The Schooner Adventure was Gloucester’s Big Dig to rest. You can also put to rest the talk that it could have been rebuilt five times over brand new with the money they spent by saving a little corner of the hull and rebuilding around it like they’ve done with the Bluenose up in Nova Scotia. 

None of that matters now.  She took her first Sail With All Sails Up Today!

A GLORIOUS DAY! 

Congratulations to all those that have put in the time, effort and cheddar to make this day happen.  Huge accomplishment.

Look for the Adventure to Sail In This Year’s Schooner Festival which To Me Is THE STORY of this year’s Schooner Festival (along with the first annual lobster bake on Harriett Webster Pier)

Hi Joey, I didn’t get to sail on Adventure’s great day but arrived in time for the crew’s celebration. -Len Burgess

Len Burgess submits-

Barry O’Brien and his volunteer teachers, Len Burgess, Kathy Chapman, Dave Delorey, Tony Schettino, and Mike Dyer, lead an intense photo workshop at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum Saturday to help raise money for the Museum. We had perfect weather and enthusiastic attendees. Here’s the class picture taken by Dave Delorey (who magically always manages to get into the photo too).

As Ann Kennedy says, ” photos from a Gulliver (Gull-lover).” Ann’s photos are not strictly Gloucester Homies–though all are beautiful and included nonetheless.IMG_0218IMG_0163P1020594P1090298P1090299

The above photo was taken by David Parsons. David writes, “This was taken on the Yankee Clipper. We were Pollock fishing Dec. 2011.”

And from Nicole, “Homies on the Hood!”

Joey edit-

Yeah I look pretty silly in this hat. Yeah we got freaks like Morrison strapping a Rubber Duck around his waist and Ardizzoni wearing a wonder woman outfit, newphew BJ and his buddies and Amandacakes and her buddies wearing bodypaint, and all our other crazy community friends that take part of the Polar Plunges all over in icy cold water.

It’s a New Year.  Break down some barriers for yourself, don’t let others dictate how you act, stay positive, have fun and follow your passions through.

YOU CAN GET BUSY LIVIN’ OR YOU CAN GET BUSY DYING. 

WHAT’S IT GONNA BE FOR YOU IN 2013?

Hey Joey, here’s a shot of your– one of a kind– prototype "Fake"-Flops. Happy you liked them.

Maybe you could find a manufacturer. I’m surely not going to make anymore!

Glad I made the party, thanks.

Here they are on my desk-

The next person that buys 5 DVD’s or T-Shirts get’s them thrown in their package for free. 

Salt Lake City is getting some North Shore Ice Crystals…From Our Len Burgess!!!!

Len writes-

Back in the beginning of the year an architectural designer, Catherine Widgery purchased a lot of my macro photos of ice crystals that she found on my Flickr site, ‘Photoholic1′. She used them, combined with lightning graphics, into large etched-glass windows for a transit station platform, elevator enclosure and stairs in Salt Lake City, Utah which is now under construction. Here’s a few photos of the work being done. -Len Burgess

Check out some of the great projects that Catherine has done and is designing for future contracts.
