Another Dam ship in the Front Yard.

Imagine opening your bedroom curtains in the morning and seeing that someone has parked a mid-sized cruise ship in your front yard. Holland America has a fleet of “Dam” ships and the Eurodam is a frequent visitor to Gloucester Harbor. No kidding, when you are on-board, you can by hats and tee shirts with “Dam Ships” and the Holland America logo.

Gloucester is a deep water port, but not deep enough and wide enough for the Eurodam.

All day long, the tenders shuttle passengers back and forth to Gloucester.

A little local color. Thank goodness, Sunday’s light was just dismal and difficult to work with. Here Herald Burnham comes back from a sail with some of the crew from the Lynx.

Here is just a fun little time lapse video of Gloucester Harbor on Sunday morning.

One really gets a sense as to how big these cities on the water really are with the little tenders alongside. Cool video.

How fun is that? I couldn't stop watching one boat that seemed to lazily float backwards out to sea. Ha! Your front yard constantly entertains.

Quite a sight! Good for you that you had filmed and photographed the incident. Great!

I love the contrast of the red building and the enormous cruise ship.

My husband used to have to go to Cape Canaveral frequently when he worked on space shuttle payload integration. Before they built more condos, the one where he was frequently lodged had an unobstructed view of the tops of the cruise ships over at the Port of Canaveral. It was just weird.

A while back I got the bug to photograph area dams. This, of course, became known as my "dam pictures." Unfortunately, I don't think any of the dams around here have locks large enough to accommodate the Dam ships. Awesome photos, as usual, Steve.
