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.

The sun started to break through mid-afternoon. I headed to Smith’s Cove and then drove (precariously) to Eastern Point to catch the setting sun. Happy Snow Days!

Since 1902, Gloucester’s Catholic community gives thanks to God by celebrating the Crowning of the Imperitor. Proceeding down Prospect Street, Our Lady of Good Voyage Church is just out of the frame on the left. The girls I’ve been able to identify are, from left to right: Sandy Saville; Judy Sears Cote (whose mother made the dresses); Sandra Lawler Olsen; and Loraine Mitchell. Mary Dahlmer Mesquite is on the porch. If you recognize any of the other girls, please let me know.
