Pictures from the headland of Fort Sewall, looking across the harbor towards Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Light, out to the open sea, and towards Cape Anne. From Fort Sewall it is about the same distance (as a bird flies) to the eastern extremity of Cape Anne (Rockport/Gloucester) and downtown Boston.

First picture shows Marblehead Light to the left. It is located on Chandler Hovey Park. It is located on Marblhead Neck. Looking more or less ESE. Second and third pictures looking more or less SE towards one of the three yacht clubs in Marblehead. This is the Corinthian Yacht Club. The Boston Yacht Club in the past won and defended America's Cup from Marblehead. The fourth picture is looking out the channel towards the open sea. The fifth picture is looking more or less ENE - navigation buoys can be seen. The sixth picture is looking more or less to the NE towards Cape Anne, in this case Beverly and Manchester-by-the-Sea. You can see the navigation buoy which would also be followed by a mariner leaving Salem or Beverly Harbor.

The link below shows how close the harbors of Marblehead, Salem, and Beverly are.
