Above: Fort Sewall started out as an armed U.S. fort used to fight against British invaders. Now the park offers some of the best views of Marblehead Harbor and great recreational areas.

The beautiful waterfront park is perched high on rocky bluffs and is interspersed with manicured grassy lawns. Cormorants fish the inlet below us. Hundreds of boats bob about on moorings. The lighthouse across the bay comes and goes from view as the fog thickens and thins throughout the early afternoon. It’s a perfect peek-a-boo session with nature. Misty rain silently falls like barely perceptible little snowflakes.

We visit Marblehead Light (lighthouse) setup in a gorgeous park waterfront on the bay. The tower is a steel structure that replaced the original 1835 brick and wood tower.

Above: This group was at one of the local beaches on Ocean Avenue, completely set up for exercise, boating, and workouts on the beach. Later we slowly begin a forty-mile scenic route through Gloucester, Cape Ann, Manchester, and dozens of tiny harbors, marinas and inlets. Everything here is built around the water, tourism, and fishing.
