Gloucester, Mass

So, this state that I’m currently living in…I can never spell it correctly, for the life of me. That’s why I abbreviated it in the title. By the time I’m done writing this explanation, I could have probably googled how to spell it. But I’m really lazy, and I didn’t.

Last weekend Padre came to visit and we did a lot of road tripping! The first place we visited was Gloucester! It’s America’s oldest seaport, I believe. Also the setting for the movie “The Perfect Storm.” The town is really cute! But mostly, I’d go for the views of the water. Everything is beautiful. Except for the dead bird that I saw on the docks that no longer had the form of a bird.

Before going to Gloucester, we actually drove to Dover, New Hampshire to eat at Newick’s! Let year when we went, it was already dark so I wasn’t able to see much out of the windows. Therefore, I had no idea what was beyond the building. This time we went for lunch, and to my great surprise, I discovered two things.

  1. Eating during daylight hours is much more pleasant and fun.
  2. There’s a body of water behind the building that feeds into the ocean. The restaurant catches their own seafood!

I made poor Cousin Ben run to the backyard with me for photos. It was really cold. He suffered a bit. I don’t think he hates me. Yet.

How cool is this car? Some people rolled up in it, just for a Saturday lunch. Love it. 

After lunch we drove back into Massachusetts (I spelled it right!) and to Gloucester. Padre and I did our typical tour: wing it. Combination of self-guided tour and wandering aimlessly with no plan seems to be a common feature in our exploring styles. I’d say it worked.

Padre and I also went to Providence, and I’ll be sharing that, next 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!
