The Gloucester wind mills visible all the way from Scituate

A great perspective of the expanse of Massachusetts Bay: Yesterday, the three new wind turbines recently put up in Gloucester were visible all the way from Scituate! Here is a photo of them, with Minot Light and Scituate Glades in foreground as proof:

You can see it! Last Saturday, I noticed the structure off the Northeast while I was out in the bay East of Boston Harbor. The new wind turbine in Gloucester is very clearly visible to boaters from outside Boston Harbor, and as it turns out, is even visible from as far away as the South Shore: Specifically, Turkey Hill in Hingham and the cliffs over Jerusalem Road in Cohasset. As such, this adds a great location point for boaters to help them determine there position and direction while far out on the wide open sea. The Gloucester turbine will be a good visible marker along with the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, The Salem Power Station, the Lawson Tower and Driftway Wind Turbine in Scituate, and Thacher Island in Rockport.

Boston Harbor Beacon Writes-
Posted on November 10, 2012 by admin
This week’s Nor’easter, packing wind gusts up to 50mph, swept a Gloucester fishing boat all the way across Massachusetts Bay. This morning, while driving down Jerusalem Road in Cohasset, I was surprised to see the boat was still there, so I took these pictures from the street (the vessel appears to be on private property, so I couldn’t get much closer). The location of this vessel is near the intersection of Jerusalem Road and Atlantic Ave. Evidently, the boat broke from its mooring in Gloucester’s Magnolia Harbor, which is just over 22 miles away!
