Gloucester is a quintessential New England fishing town North of Boston. Home to America's original seaport and a huge arts colony, it's also home of the huge "Fisherman's Memorial" and plaques depicting the ships and people who have never come back from sea since the early 1800's.
Pretty sobering stats.
Above is an old paint factory which is very aged and picturesque and sits on the edge of town. I've read a few blog posts that indicate it may be demolished soon, so I snapped a few shots of it!
Yep, that's the Gorton Fishermen Man. Pretty good stuff for ready-made meals. Try it sometime.
A beautiful schooner and the sparkly water.
A beautiful lone tree on a hill. :)
