Travel Haiku - Massachusetts Coast road tour Poem by john tiong chunghoo


Boston to Gloucester coastal ride
we ditch 10,000 lost lives talk to locating
the home made with 100,000 newspapers

Drive Massachusetts’s scenic coast from Boston through historic Gloucester, the quintessential New England fishing town, settled in 1623. Over 10,000 local fishermen’s lives have been claimed off these shores; this area played the setting for the book and blockbuster film The Perfect Storm. For a fascinating stop on the way back, visit The Paper House in Rockport. Beginning in 1922, Elis F. Stenman, inventor of the machine that makes paper clips, spent 20 years layering and pasting approximately 100,000 newspapers together to create his two-room dream home, complete with paper-covered tables, chairs, lamps, and even a piano.
