I’ve said it for as long as I can remember. If I had a visitor in Gloucester for only one day and they wanted to do the very best thing they could do in this city and it could be only one thing, at the pinnacle of my list would be a sunset cruise aboard the Thomas E Lannon. The pinnacle. As in the very tippity top of the list. Such a no-brainer good time, The Ellis family are the nicest, funnest, most hospitable people in this town, the Lannon is the most beautiful boat in town, you get Gloucester Harbor. It Is The Perfect Evening, Every Single Time!
It doesn’t hurt that you get to share your time drinking with Gloucester’s finest spirits with Bobby and Doug Ryan from Ryan and Wood, and 95Plus rated cigars from Paul Giacalone. Win Win Win

Thanks so much to our host Joey, Captains Tom Ellis and Heath Ellis, Bob and Doug Ryan for their fabulous Ryan and Wood rum cocktails, Paul Giacalone for cigars, which although I don’t smoke were throughly enjoyed by guests, and the always awesome Lannon crew!

My apologies to our friends on the cruise that there are so few photos. This morning when looking at the images I noticed a giant black sploge on every photo–a huge goober on my image sensor. Here’s a few without the sploge after photoshopping out.

Today at Hunt’s photo in Melrose, my go-to place for all camera wants, needs, and crisis, Doug showed me how to professionally clean my image sensor, and its not as scary as you might think!
