Beautiful View Of Fisherman’s Wharf In Provincetown Harbor On Cape Cod.

I love to drive out to the end of MacMillan Pier and just look around. There is always so much to see and each time, it is different.

The large sailboat docked across the harbor at Fisherman’s Wharf near the mural “They Also Faced the Sea” was just beautiful. Such a pretty scene with such a very moving story!

“They Also Faced The Sea installation was designed to keep the spirit and the presence of Portuguese culture alive by Ewa Nogiec, artist, publisher of iamprovincetown.com and owner of Gallery Ehva, and Norma Holt, photographer in 2012.”

“They Also Faced The Sea” In Provincetown On Cape Cod.

When you drive out on MacMillan Wharf and look over to Fisherman’s Wharf you are treated to “five larger-than-life black and white photographs of Provincetown women of Portuguese descent, mounted on a building at the end of Fisherman’s Wharf in Provincetown Harbor, and is conceived as a tribute to the Portuguese community and its fishing heritage.”

“They Also Faced The Sea” was installed by Ewa Nogeiec and is striking in its size and black and white nature. Its title embodies the Portuguese women as “mothers, wives, sisters, friends and family of fishermen, as cooks, laundresses, nurses, teachers and telephone operators.”
