Rockport Lobster Company Pier Collapses into the Harbor

The pier of the Rockport Lobster Company collapsed yesterday at around 16:00 (4:00 PM).  Luckily the owner was outside at the time when he heard the floor inside collapse with a roar.   Approximately 10,000 ponds of Lobsters were lost, the family owned business has been operating since 1990.

During their stay in Gloucester they watched Captain Muniz from the F/V Lily off load a tuna yesterday, they were hoping to pick up the Tuna Head to take back home as well; however it was long gone.

A most enjoyable encounter with Ron and his wife.
