Over the past year I've seen so many images of Gloucester on Steve blog, Shooting My Universe, and Jay's blog, Cape Ann Images. Wonderful and amazing seaport pictures I couldn't wait to see it for myself: the old paint factory, the large fishing vessels, multiple lighthouses, guys working on the docks, it's all so romantic. I was not disappointed.
Solar powered lighthouse?
Jay left a comment with the following info:Those lights are 133' tall and just about all navaids have solar power now.The island had been known as "Thatcher" Island for over 100 years until recently.It is now "Thacher" when old records were discovered with the correct spelling!
