During a recent visit to Rockport/Cape Ann, Mass. my husband & I took a quick drive to Gloucester. We first stopped at the Fisherman's Memorial - a touching tribute to so many who have lost their lives doing what they love. Def worth a visit. Nearby was The Crow's Nest, where the movie, The Perfect Storm, was filmed. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. We walked into a very unobtrusive simple pub - exactly as it was portrayed in the movie. We immediately felt warm & welcomed. The barmaid was friendly & quick to address us. A local man sitting nearby said hello and started pleasant conversation. We asked about the filming of the movie and he quickly shared interesting stories about the real families and the crew in the movie. He directed us to pictures hung on the walls. The barmaid, hearing our conversation, placed a photo album on the bar. We touchingly flipped thru pages of pictures depicting the real families of the Andrea Gail and some of the crew who filmed the movie. It was obvious this album has been shared with many. We felt so welcomed that we stayed a bit longer & listened to more stories. Even a patron from New Orleans came over to say hello & share her stories of Hurricane Katrina. I can't describe how touched we were by the people we met here and their heartfelt stories. Don't be misled by the simpleness of this pub both outside & inside. A visit to Gloucester isn't complete without a stop at The Crow's Nest & the opportunity to make new friends and share heartwarming stories. I will never forget our visit or the wonderful people we met here. I hope to visit again one day.
