Oliver Hazard Perry and Eastern Point Lighthouse

OLIVER HAZARD PERRY Eastern Point Lighthouse Gloucester MA copyright Kim SmithThese photos were taken as the sun was setting, from Stage Fort Park, on my way home from Manchester last night. How beautiful to catch a glimpse of this grand ship anchored in our harbor and adjacent to the Eastern Point Lighthouse. Folks enjoying dinner at the park were referring to it as the “pirate ship.” Here in Gloucester Harbor for one night only, Rhode Island’s tall ship the Oliver Hazard Perry will be returning in September.

Thanks to Scott Memhard for the heads up that the magnificent Oliver Hazard Perry was docking at Cape Pond Ice this morning. While the Ice House crew provided the ship with water, which takes several hours, the Perry crew took a tour of Cape Pond Ice and then had an hour to tour around Gloucester. The OHP takes no passengers, everyone aboard is a working crew member or working student.

Although this is the Perry’s maiden voyage, the captain and crew did an excellent job docking the ship. She is anchored at Rockport Harbor this evening. The Oliver Hazard Perry will be returning to Gloucester in September for a longer stay and at that time, the public will be able to tour the ship. See my post from yesterday with photos of the Oliver Hazard Perry sailing into Gloucester and a link to track the Perry.
