Captain Heath Ellis and Michael O’Leary entertain quests on the schooner Thomas E. Lannon with Celtic Music and a brisk sail ending with a great sunset. A great evening.
Executive Officer Brandon McCampbell reports that the crew of the Key Largo is the same as the crew that operated the Grand Isle. Approximately 32 days ago, they picked up the Key Largo in San Juan, then onto Miami, then to Charleston, before arriving in Gloucester.
Interestingly, I asked Executive Officer McCampbell what the symbols mean that are painted above the Key Largo sign, each with a red X. The seven snowflakes represent seven cocaine seizures and the plant, marijuana seizures.

Yesterday afternoon as the sun was setting I stopped down the Jodrey State Fish Pier to see if there was any ice left in the harbor. There was some, but it seemed mostly along the edges. Snapping photos of the Captain Joe fishing boat, I met the captain of the Captain Joe and, no surprise, his name is Captain Joe! He was super personable to talk with and asked whether I was speaking American English or was from Great Britain. I asked him from where was his accent and he said a combination of Sicilian and Italian. One of the crew joked and demanded a $100.00 per shot as he assumed I was working for an international magazine. Funny! I told them all about Good Morning Gloucester. If you read this Captain Joe, thanks for the photos of your beautiful boat in the setting sun!

The sun’s light at daybreak coming up over the harbor after the snowstorm lent a golden glow to all. I find our neighborhood–the people, the architecture, the boats, the sweet little robins–to be a never ending source of inspiration. See panoramic view of Smith’s Cove sunrise, posted yesterday.
I keep trying to find different ways to show the increasing amounts of snowfall in this most historic of snowy winters and think the panoramic view lends itself well.
