Where to begin? I guess the best place to begin is with the arrival of this years guest the USCG Barque Eagle. On Friday afternoon the majestic training ship of the US Coast Guard entered Gloucester Harbor and was greeted by a local flotilla. The weather was great for the Saturday night fireworks (More of that later) and for the Sunday morning Parade of Sail there was a brisk SW wind that filled the sails. I'd have to say this year had the biggest crowds I've seen ever for this annual event.
