So yesterday I never made it to my blog to finish the story of our Gloucester trip. I was too busy celebrating my 30th birthday! Yay! It wasn’t that I was laying out in the sun being served margaritas and fanned by the Mr. No. Rather I was working and STILL playing catch up from our trip. But we will get to that later. For now, it’s back to Gloucester . . . . . . . . . .
Our last day in Gloucester was beautiful and sunny. What a way to end a trip that mostly proved Gloucester is one of the rainiest places on earth. For breakfast we decided to go to Sugar Magnolias, a place a friend recommended and praised their awesome french toast. We ordered the carrot cake pancakes smothered in cream cheese butter and Georgia’s French Toast. Well now, let me tell you. Breakfast just hasn’t been the same since. I was happily burping up chocolate for the rest of the day.
After The Mr. rolled me out the door of Sugar Magnolias, we decided some movement would do us a lot of good. We took a stroll through the inner streets of Gloucester, on a hunt for some of the buildings with towers that you could see from anywhere on the island.
Then we decided to track down the infamous greasy pole, Man at the Wheel, and the Fisherman’s Wife statue, so we jumped on the Harbor Walk and luckily came across all three.
After the Harbor Walk, we walked to our party at the Dory Shop on Harbor Loop to tell everyone thank you for the best week imaginable while visiting Gloucester. We ate fresh lobster and salmon and drank tons of
beer cider enjoying our last few hours in the city that The Mr. and I have come to love. One more boat ride marks the end of our trip to a place I will never forget, filled with people who will always hold a place in my heart.
