Motif #1


The famous “Motif Number 1” in Rockport, MA Because it’s practically obligatory to paint/take a picture of it, or the replica to be precise.

The original Motif No. 1 it was built on Bradley Wharf in the 1840s, destroyed by the blizzard of 1978 and rebuilt later that year.



I am sailing, I am sailing,
Home again cross the sea.
I am sailing, stormy waters,
To be near you, to be free.

I am flying, I am flying,
Like a bird cross the sky.
I am flying, passing high clouds,
To be with you, to be free.

Lyrics by Gavin Sutherland, 1972.
