Oliver Hazard Perry ship Ten Pound Island copyright Kim Smith GloucesterOliver Hazard Perry Passing Ten Pound Island on the way to Cape Pond Ice

Thanks to Scott Memhard for the heads up that the magnificent Oliver Hazard Perry was docking at Cape Pond Ice this morning. While the Ice House crew provided the ship with water, which takes several hours, the Perry crew took a tour of Cape Pond Ice and then had an hour to tour around Gloucester. The OHP takes no passengers, everyone aboard is a working crew member or working student.

Although this is the Perry’s maiden voyage, the captain and crew did an excellent job docking the ship. She is anchored at Rockport Harbor this evening. The Oliver Hazard Perry will be returning to Gloucester in September for a longer stay and at that time, the public will be able to tour the ship. See my post from yesterday with photos of the Oliver Hazard Perry sailing into Gloucester and a link to track the Perry.

Richard Arnold

While at the Marine Railway on Saturday met this nice gentleman named Richard Arnold.  He was the last Captain on the Phyllis A.  He told me they named the Phyllis A after his sister.  Richard stated that he is one of 6 children, five boys and one girl named Phyllis.  He also told me he served on the Nantucket Lightship.

Another reason I love visiting the Railways.

Back To School

I’m kind of in love with this commercial.  As a mom who is in the midst of getting all “Back to School Ready”…and is starting to worry about school supplies, lunch containers, clothes, etc. this commercial made me laugh.

I love the “Own the First Day” ending.  And…the kid with all of his sticky notes, highlighters, glue, pens, pencils, notebooks etc all laid out neatly is TOTALLY me.  If my mom knew how to chime in right now and comment she would.  I’m a big fan of organization…and more than a little obsessive compulsive about things like this.

These kids are pumped and ready…. Go get ’em!
