Fireworks on the Cove (in March?!?)

You never know what will happen around the cove--that's part of the "charm" of living here. On the 4th of July, we get lots of fireworks, some semi-sanctioned (or at least overlooked) by the city--beautiful against the night sky over Ipswich Bay. But last night, around 1:10 AM, we got quite a display. Someone decided to light up the sky, not with a few bottle rockets, but with a whole display--maybe 15-20 minutes worth. I wonder, could it be marking the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq or just inebriated fun? Hard to tell, here On the Cove.


  • It was quite a beautiful display and it was in honor of the Iranian New Year...

  • Really! It is the Iranian New Year (Monday) and fireworks are traditional on Chahar Shanbeh Suri (the last Wednesday of the year), so I guess it could be. Happy Iranian New Year!

  • Hi. I used to be a nanny for a family of Canadian Buddhists in Gloucester back in 1989-1990. It was the most amazing experience of my entire 39 years of living. I've never been back but in my dreams, I can still see the gorgeous ocean and remember every rock I climbed on and every nook and cranny I explored.

  • amy,
    This is an amazing location. The more time I spend here, and the more people I meet, the more I appreciate it. It is no wonder why so many talented and interesting people have spent part or all of their lives around Lanes Cove. Good luck in SD.

  • thanks Stan....I don't really "need" luck to live in the prairies of South Dakota...since I was born and raised here....I still hope to return to Gloucester some day. Sometimes I can still smell the ocean :)
