The Barque Picton Castle is a three-masted tall ship based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada.
It has completed her sixth circumnavigation around the world in May of this year.
She was in Gloucester harbor for a few days before heading north to Portland, for a Schooner Festival.
During her departure, our own schooner the Thomas E. Lannon, made chase after a 30 minute head start, to wish her a safe voyage.
Below are some photos taken from the Breakwater, Enjoy.
I ran into Lye on the breakwater, he was fishing and enjoying a day off from work. We exchanged our immigration stories of why we came to the USA. His was far more dramatic than my own. I also found that as a Vietnamese Interpreter, I found that his English was far better than my Vietnamese. Lye a naturalized US citizen, like myself, passes on the benefits to his children, for his hard work. We cherish our heritage, but Love America.
Construction continues on the Rockport Breakwater and, after watching this guy do his work, you have to assume that he picked the short straw.
Yikes! That is not a job I would want in January…or anytime really.
Great job, my friend!
The “lighthouse” at the end of the harbor breakwater on Bearskin Neck in Rockport has precariously tumbled away from its perch. Even though I live right down the street and go by this often by boat, I’m not sure exactly when this happened. Anyone?
