Pretty walk and welcome to Gloucester. Views of the homes on one side and the harbor/bay on the other. Boats and ships in harbor and actively sailing. Memorial to sailors lost at sea.

Sweet, interesting shops. Various interests will be happy. There is a store where the gentleman makes all the wood furniture that is offered for sale. Beautiful work. We went to a children's shop, ladies shop. Fun time.
