'Our expectations help us see but they also blind us to what we don't expect.' - Ellen Langer, On Becoming an Artist
|A Proper Send Off - Jay Albert, Cape Ann Images|
The sail culminated with a memorial for Joe Garland who passed away just shy of his 89th birthday last week. He was a beloved Gloucester persona, a timeless friend and historian of all things fishing and all things Gloucester. We sailed into the harbor to gather with other fishing boats and schooners waiting to pay their respects. When Zack lit the cannon, a cacophony of booms, horns, whistles and shouts filled the air sending hundreds of seagulls up into the skies in spiralling tornadoes of motion. A proper send off and a memorable sail once again on the Thomas E. Lannon.
