A View from the Road

Gloucester Fisherman’s Memorial

“They that go down to the sea in ships.”


By chance, we stopped in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where we happened to spot this very familiar View from the Road: The Gloucester Fisherman’s Memorial.

The memorial includes bronze plaques that list the names and dates of people who perished at sea; from the area.



I will confess that before our visit, I had not realized it was a memorial, rather, I knew the image or a close facsimile of it, from Gorton’s frozen fish sticks boxes; which happens to be in the same town.



“Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the mighty waters; they saw the deeds of the Lord, his wondrous works in the deep.

For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea.”
~ Psalms 23-24 ~
