Cape Ann is located 43 miles northeast of Boston, Massachusetts. It includes the towns of Rockport and Gloucester. Gloucester is America’s first seaport established in 1623, some 7 years before Boston. A nor’easter is a circular storm were the winds come from the northeast with the worst having hurricane force winds. The photos in this gallery were shot after a small nor’easter storm with gale force winds. I can only imagine how bad a really big storm would be, like the storm of September 1991, which was made into a movie about the Andrea Gail in The Perfect Storm. The seaport of Gloucester has lost more than 5000 fishermen in the last 386 years.
