“Thank you to all the Judges that were on the Cape Ann Watch Watch – Hurricane. Thank you to the Gloucester Police Boat crew and Harbormaster. Thank you Mt. Gay Rum for the great Hawaiian shirts for all the participants, and maybe some more from Mt. Gay at the Awards party at Mile Marker One…so stay tuned on a date, coming soon.
Still on the hunt for more photos of each boat, so please post or FB message @boatparadeoflights or email.
Thank you to all participants it was a great parade and always so fun to be in it!”
Joseph Prezioso action photos for the Boston Herald | Captain Harold Burnham, Schooner Ardelle, Stage Fort Park spectators
ed. note: Another try. I am re-posting as I had some technical difficulties uploading content and scheduling remotely from Boston yesterday.
On assignment “Gloucester Glows for Parade of Sail”: photographer Joseph Prezioso captivating coverage of the 2017 Gloucester Schooner Festival heralded a full color spread in the Boston Herald newspaper yesterday. Prezioso anchored his point of view from the Schooner Ardelle, embedded in the Parade of Sails action.
These photos are crisp and clear in the digital publication and there are more photographs of Captain Harold Burnham, the crew, Schooner Ardelle, Schooner American Eagle, Schooner Fame, Schooner Thomas E Lannon, and Stage Fort Park spectators.
They are from Pennsylvania, but summer in Gloucester, they are avid viewers of the blog. Mother and daughter enjoying a walk on Dogbar before heading back to school.
Just a couple night views from our trip to St. Louis. Downtown St. Louis has some great green spaces with fountains, sculptures and gardens!
It made me swoon a little bit that, after kind of a long day, my boys wanted to pull down to Granite Pier to “look at the full moon and think about how great summer was” before heading home and to bed on the night before school began.
Goodnight Rockport, Goodbye Summer.
Full moon, full summer, full hearts, back at school full-time today!
