These are present and past images I took in mid July.
Early morning harbor traffic!

Working the overnight shift affords me the opportunity to view the sunrise from the roof of the Beauport Hotel. I say at least twice a week I'll go up there unlocking doors and gates then see an amazing developing sunrise and have to go back down into my office and grab my camera.
City Hall as a gull flies by.

This year I had to make a plan, how to shoot the July 3rd fireworks and get to work on time. I like to arrive at work at least 15 minutes before my 11:00 pm shift. The problem is the Gloucester Fishtown Horribles Parade. The parade starts at 6:00 pm and it loops around from GHS back through town and back to GHS approx at 8:15 pm. Needless to say the downtown area is in gridlock status. I need to find a place to park that affords me an easy exit to get back home to E. Gloucester to get ready for work. After a few tense moments stuck in traffic I found a few short cuts and found a parking spot close enough to the Boulevard but far enough to avoid the exit traffic. I arrived on the Boulevard 15 minutes before the 9:30 pm start, perfect! Once the fireworks were over a ten minute walk to my truck and I breezed home. However, leaving E. Gloucester for work, E. Main St. was gridlocked from all the people who viewed the fireworks across the harbor! Another short cut up and around and down Brightside Ave and some traffic on the West End of Rogers Street, I made it to work 15 minutes early!

After taking three days of photos during the St. Peter's Fiesta, I finally had time to review those I didn't publish last week.

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"!
