Nonetheless, the light at the Coast Guard station at the entrance of Gloucester Harbor is da place. The address is 199 Eastern Point Blvd in Gloucester, MA if you want to visit. The road is marked "Private," but is not, according to the locals. The most famous resident was Winslow Homer. The current structure dates to 1890, according to the interweb.

Now off to snap the next tag!

That's it, Garandman, nice job! (Apologies for any confusion, wasn't my intention--kind of new at this, myself.)

"The Country Store" was photographed by four different motorcyclists within 2 days. I wonder what they were thinking inside the store?

New tag.

Here's a clue:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world.

Second clue: the stones in the field are markers.

Third clue: the picture was taken at 3:45pm.

CAUTION: I took the picture from the street. Beware of traffic!

Here is a map of where this has gone so far. We have covered some ground!

Since it is in my neck of the woods again, can I still play even if I started it?

We have two of them - TiVo 2 and 3. But it's not the same when someone tells you who won.

Too bad, if I'd known we could have had lunch. Wicked nice day. I headed back to the office before my loop on the way home.

Why not? Once you launched, you have no advantage.

HA! Lunch huh? If it weren't for those those two dead lobsters that my wife insisted Woodman's no longer needed I would have gotten to the light house first! Cursed crustaceans!

When I got to Eastern Point, there was an older woman (and I'm 55!) there with a Kawasaki shirt on. She asked if I wanted her to take a picture and I said sure. She explained that she had ridden a Vulcan from MA to CA or CA to MA (I forget). I 'splained the tag-o-rama thing to her and she said we are all the cool kids.

Was she riding the Vulcan? We saw a, er, um "pudgy" older woman riding an older, uglyish cruiser comming away from there when we left the resteraunt.

Oh, I SO know where that is. No time to get to it, though, good luck, folks.

Good on Ya Wilfred...

Yeah, was posted as a teaser- not a tag- going out there next week if the WX co-operates. Many of the Flugistani inmates were tired of western ma tags so i thought i'd post sometning to get folks thinking.....

Once past the Kennedy Car Wash (local term), all sugar sand, and requires a $250.00 permit to drive on. There is a light house further out, but it's off limits for the tag-0-rama

just outta curioisity- how did you figure it out? Were you out there? Happen to see an ancient crustation in a boat near by? That would have been YB Senior- an old skool adv'r- rides a 48 Indian Chief Police special.(* and has no idea what a computer is *)

will have to grab the next tag before i leave for Chappy......

YB
