    After visiting Salem we made a quick trip to Gloucester then spent the last part of our trip visiting the sites in Boston.  It was sunset when we arrived in Gloucester so I only got a few photos but it looks worth a longer visit in the future. A memorial to lost fishermen located on the Gloucester waterfront.  The names of those lost are inscribed on plaques surrounding the statue on the seawall.  Some may notice a similarity between this […]

    These are photos from a day trip to Cape Cod.  It was a fairly short drive to the Cape (less than an hour) from our campground.  Plymouth was on the way but unfortunately we didn’t have time for a visit.  Most of these are from Provincetown unless otherwise noted.

The first stop was the harbor. We thought the name of this boat and their decoration were humorous. From the harbor, we […]

    This group of photos are from the town of Mystic, CT. This calico met us on the street while we were taking photos of the Mystic Boat Yard.  It stayed close the entire time we were there then went back to one of the neighborhood houses as we were leaving.
