Gloucester, MA

Arrived today after the fuel leak was finally fixed.  Took 15 o rings and a new fuel line but finally everything is okay and no more PINK oil pads.

Actually got to sail today from Manchester.  Took about 2 hours as we were only doing 2 to 3 knots.

After checking in with the Harbor Master, we went off exploring the town.  Found the famous fisherman and wives statues.  Did you know that over 5,000 fishermen have lost their lives since 1630.  They have a list of names starting in 1713 at the Fishermen's Memorial. 

Bought clams for Joy and fish cakes for Joe. Tomorrow headed back to shore for breakfast, and then a visit to the Visitor's Center.  Looks like Steve and Marty are coming up for Jazz Dinner at Lat 43 restaurant.


PS  This sign says it all about the flower gardens near the Fishermen's Memorial.
