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.

Ron and his lovely wife from Harrisburg Pennsylvania, stopped by to pick up 20 lobsters at Rockport Lobster Company, before heading back home. Ron recently visited Australia, and picked up a “CROCODILE GANDHI” hat made from Kangaroo hide.
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.
