A Quick Stop in Gloucester, Massachusetts

We traveled as far north as Brooklin, Maine and as far south as Greenwood, Indiana. We chuckle at the miles we put on our Jeep. What happens when you keep us from driving? Well, we make up for it in one swoop. Ha! While living in China we can’t drive or are not allowed to drive. I happen to think it’s just my husband being over protective and telling me we can’t drive vs. he doesn’t want me to drive. But, that’s an argument for a later post.

This map doesn't tell of all. It does however give you an idea of where we were.

One of my favorite stops was in Gloucester, Massachusetts (pronounced Glahster) A very lively and picturesque town with some of the best fried haddock we’ve ever had. I was so excited because this is the town where the movie, “The Perfect Storm with George Clooney was filmed back in 1999. We walked up and down the road looking for the bar, “The Crows Nest” and couldn’t find it. I guess the fame of the movie and filming location excitement has worn off. Jeez it was only filmed in 1999, guess I was a bit late for the excitement. After walking so much we decided to stop and eat. We wanted something local so the restaurant of choice was Captain Carlos. Fantastic food and location to say the least!Ā TShirt

We were seated in a perfect spot right by the water overlooking the harbor. Of course we had to do the tourist thing and purchase some T-Shirts from the joint. A memorable evening.
