Back in March I did a promotional photo shoot for CBS in Jimmy Tarantino's efforts to be a cast member on their hit show "Survivor". Well Jimmy made it and he's a proud representitive of Gloucester and Cape Ann. Yesterday mid afternoon I got a call of a boat landing at Boston Seafood Display Auction down on "The Fort". As it turns out the boat "Princess Elena" was not on my list due to a last minute change so I was asked to cover her unloading. The boat was late to arrive but that gave me the chance to catch the waterfront happenings from one of the prettiest spots in the harbor. And what did I see? Jimmy "T" out rowing a dory, early evening wearing sun glasses! He has gone Hollywood!
Jimmy "T" rowing during the Blackburn Challenge 2009.
See...he's got the shades on!
"Ambjorg & Julie" with a watery salute!
Heading to another spot.
Look....The schooner "Thomas E. Lannon"!
In sailing trim.
Approaching the dock.
Heaving the spring line.
Hauling her in.
Joe waits for the fish to come up.
"Christina Eleni" steams by.
Puff of smoke as she revs her engines.
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
