Glorious Gloucester 3rd,4th and 5th jJuly
Gloucester is actually a fantastic natural harbour, and home to a large fishing industry and a colony of artisans, past and present and well worth a visit. there is a really good whaling information centre and an amazing Cape Ann Museum which houses the works of several internationally renowned Maine Artists where I fell in love with Winslow Homer. . .It is easy to imagine this harbour 100 years ago, adorned with elegant schooners delivering and dealing. . . .
Gloucester is also the home of boat restorers Cate and Deakin Banks who showed us the real Gloucester, and a great time was had by all!
Actually independence day weekend was good fun, starting with the 'Parade of The Horribles' a grand firework display, more free music and a wonderful neighbourhood party up the hill.
