Downtown Gloucester Block Party

There was fun for all ages. Here one of the dance troupes performs early in the evening.

A recurring comment I heard was that the parents of the kids in the performances went home after the show and got babysitters so they could return once they saw how great the set up was.

I expect even more people next time around.

Bluenose II at GMHC 4:50AM 8/31/08

Very excited to see that the gates at The Heritage Center were not closed and I could get right down to the end of the pier where the Bluenose II was tied up for these shots.  Creak creak creak go the boards in the early morning as you step across with no one else around.
