• I saw a cool lecture at Maritime Gloucester last night. Lloyd Figgins, who rowed across the Atlantic for 60 days and 17 hours, said he was only able to complete the voyage because, “It was the ocean who let us cross.” After watching this video with the huge waves crashing a few yards from the road and houses on the Back Shore, I’m thinking that we’re allowed to live on the coast because the ocean lets us. Great video. Thanks.


  • My father and I used to wade out to those island like rocks at low tide with our bamboo poles to fish when I was a child. We would fish while the tide came in and swim ashore with our strings of mostly cunners which we fed to the dogs. My father could clean the cunners. I never got the knack. It is startling to see the surf crashing over those rocks like that.
    I went to that rowing lecture last night too. It was quite a story.
