We had 3 great days in Gloucester!
The mooring was secure and easily accessible. The free launch service was awesome! The launch always came quickly. The operators were professional and full of advice.
We made great use of output time playing tourist. The Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester is a combination art and history museum. The current Winslow Homer exhibit is fascinating as are the exhibits on fishing, fishing schooners and granite mining.
We also took a Cape Ann Transit Authority bus ( $0.60 for seniors) to Rockport where we took a free walking tour of the village. The guide was full of interesting stories. We also shopped and had a fine lunch on Bearskin Neck. On the way back to Gloucester the bus dropped us at a Stop & Shop where we did some provisioning.
To top off the trip we found several ice cream shops within walking distance of the launch landing. “Holy Cow” was our favorite.
We will return again!
