Sailing to Gloucester and Essex Mass.

Gloucester is one of the last working ports ( besides new Bedford)in MA. We love to visit because we can check out all the yards and see whats being worked on. Our last visit there was much activity. You never know what you will find. On the far side of the harbour is an artists colony that has many small gallerys to meander thru. Essex, the next town over- a long walk and short taxi ride has a great old boat yard with many displays and many antique and junk shops. The  homes are Historic and restored and there are many a brightly colored door!

Well worth a visit if you are sailing around New England and want a little rough and tumble town.

Sailing thru water. restoring and refinishing wooden boats and homes. Handcrafting a collection of last a lifetime- inheritable objects. ( worldsendny) Inspiration comes from the places we sail, the people we meet and the history of long ago.
