I took a walk on Wingaersheek Beach yesterday, looking for the Channel Marker that had washed ashore during a storm. See (Ed Sawicki March 26 2010, entry in GMG ).
I did not realize how big this thing is. Michael Densmore, a professional welder, was also there taking measurements. He is trying to bid on the contract with the Coast Guard, to cut it up so it can be removed. As I took photos I thought how great this would look at the new area on Rogers Street. I also found out that Mike was the welder that had worked on the majority of the channel markers we see around the city.
I hope I get the opportunity to watch them cut this thing up and haul it away.
Even on a cold drizzle day you can find something interesting in Gloucester.
