January 26, 2020 – Stacy Esplanade/The Lucy Brown Davis Pathway – Massachusetts

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Stacy Esplanade and the Lucy Brown Davis Pathway in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  I debated blogging this Adventure as I found limited information identifying specific details on these locations.  However, after researching for a bit I discovered we had walked on the Stacy Esplanade and The Lucy Brown Davis Pathway.  The Lucy Brown Davis Pathway commences at Fort Stage Park, and appears to end where the Esplanade begins.  Along the Esplanade you will find landmarks, including:  the Blynman Bridge, the Gloucester Fishermen’s and the Fishermen’s Wives Memorial.  The Esplanade is also part of the extended walk of the Gloucester HarborWalk.

We had a wonderful coastal walk along the Stacy Esplanade and Lucy Brown Davis Pathway.  It was an unusually warm day, the blue sky filled with spectacular clouds.  We enjoyed our walk, the warm sun streaming down upon us.  There were several places where we were able to walk down and explore the beach.  I am guessing the tide must have been out.  The water was gorgeous, the waves small but singing grandly.  Shadow and Wilma enjoyed sniffing and exploring on the beach, while I appreciated the coastal scene.  We visited the statues along the way and imagined how gorgeous the walk would be with the flower beds in bloom.  It felt like a spring day, just perfect.  A simple, but scenic walk today (Rating: 3).
