The lighthouse and jetty at the entrance to Gloucester Harbor are important in my prayer life. During the long retreat I would walk down to the jetty and out to the very end at night if the tide was low. Boston was visible in the distance with the lights glittering. I would yell at God on the jetty. In the mornings, if the tide was low, I would run to the jetty and out to the edge, a very tricky thing given the rocks. The lighthouse is at the beginning of the jetty.
The old factory sits a bit further out in the harbor. The only thing missing is a Burma Shave sign.
We did see whales. Here is proof.
