The plan was to go kayaking today, but it was Sunday in Gloucester and either I had to pay $25.00 to park at a beach or fight the crowds to launch it.  I decided to run, bike and work out at the park again instead. 

I love this town.  Wandering from shop to shop and cruising along the picturesque roads, everywhere I turn is a post card. 

I sent Captain Joe an e-mail at letting him know that I would be glad to do an interview with him.  He got right back to me and said he was interested.   As I drove around I saw a sign that said below retail lobsters for sale.  I stopped in and saw a real lobster drop off point where the lobster men unload their catch.  As I was taking my video a guy said "Hey, I know you, you're the guy living the dream."

It was Captain Joe.  Amazing coincidence.  We talked and got along great.  What a nice guy with such a professional and interesting web sight.  He told me he would put my blog on his site and try to do an interview.  How cool.

I was going to eat some lobster somewhere today and went to a the Seaport Grille across from the Crow's Nest.  I met Bobby, a blues drummer, and his sweet and beautiful wife Rebbecca. They were great.  They had  a huge plate of steamers slid in front of them and my eyes got big looking at them.  Bobby offered me some and I accepted.  They were delicious.  In return I bought them a couple drinks.  A friendship was born. 

When my twin lobster dinner arrived, Bobby saw I really didn't know how to crack them open so he did it for me.  A true pro and great instructional lobster cracking video.

After dinner Bobby and Rebbecca offered to show me around.  I accepted and we walked out to their car, a 1966, black, mint GTO.  What a ride.  They took me all over and we had drinks, I had many drinks.  These were some of the nicest people I have met in a long time.  Rebbecca was an absolute doll.  I hope we stay friends.  They gave me quite an education about the real Gloucester.

This morning I had quite a hangover.  This is why I have the two drink guidline.  Captain Joe called me and wanted to do a video.  I met him at the Pleasant Street Cafe and we did an interview about my journey that will be on 

I was going to stay another day but the Crow's Nest was booked and I had to go.  Gotn to cut today's story a little short.   It can't get much better than Gloucester so I think I will head to the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont..........  Maybe.
