Eastern Point Lighthouse

The water has receded and left in its wake tremendous damage to a number of homes and property. In many cases, from the exterior, it appears as though the record breaking high tide never occurred, but interiors are an entirely different story.

The roads are very driveable! Thanks to incredible efforts by Mayor Sefatia, Representative Ann Margaret Ferrante, State Senator Bruce Tarr, Gloucester’s awesome DPW, policemen, firemen, emergency medical crews, and the Coast Guard for all that they did yesterday to help our community keep safe and all that they continue to do today to recover from the Bomb Cyclone of 2018.

This week, with the exception of Thursday, I have pre-scheduled my posts with a series of photos from last Sunday’s early morning walk as I am not sure how easy it will be to post from California. I am hoping to fill my time with additional posts from LA, if doable. Liv reports it may be in the seventies this week!
