A few weeks ago, while vacationing in Boston, we ferried over to the town of Gloucestor, one of the earliest English settlements. It is now known for the Rocky Neck Art Colony, where many artists call home.
The town was and still is a major seafaring and fishing port. Heard of Gorton’s fish sticks? Well, Gorton’s of Gloucestor was founded here back in 1849, and the company still catches and processes their seafood here.
Anyway, there is a monument dedicated to the thousands of fishermen who ventured out to sea. The monument reads “They that go down to the sea in ships.” It’s actually from a psalm in the bible.
History lesson over. Craft time begins.
