I’m back from my weekend getaway and I feel recharged. Here’s a quick rundown of what we did and what we saw.
There is one image that is usually associated with Gloucester. That is the Fishermen’s Memorial, which is dedicated to the thousands of men lost at sea. I was fortunate to see it on such a lovely day.
Up next: Hammond Castle. When I told a buddy at work that I was heading to Gloucester for the weekend he mentioned this castle. He told me you may think I’m crazy, but I swear there is a castle in Massachusetts. And he’s right. John Hays Hammond, Jr. constructed this castle during the years 1926-1929 to house a large collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance works of art. Unfortunately the castle was not open for me to see the inside since it was too early in the season. However, I was able to wander the grounds.
On the way to the hotel we drove by Gorton’s, which I mentioned in a previous post.
