Photo’s from Gloucester’s fantabulous-in-every way Maritime Heritage Day. With wonderful activities for mariners at heart, both young and old, beautiful wares for sale, folk music, and delicious seafood, this event just gets more and more awesome every year. I can’t wait to take our granddaughter to next year’s Maritime Heritage Day!
I was fortunate enough to enjoy some much needed schooner therapy the other night by taking a sail on the Ardelle with Captain Harold Burnham.
All is right in the world while on the water.

So much beauty in one harbor. It almost doesn’t seem fair….almost.
The day began a bit dreary, but grey skies couldn’t detract from the gorgeousness of the schooners as they paraded throughout our harbor.
Lucky, lucky us. Thanks to everyone who played a part in another successful Schooner Festival.
What a beauty of a day to watch the Ardelle launch on Saturday.
A gorgeous day for the launch of the Ardelle.
