Eat, Love, Revive

Hi there. Hope you all had a great holiday weekend.

My hubby and I just returned from a relaxing vacation with our dog, Otis. We visited Rockport, MA. Rockport is a small seaside community located on the northernmost tip of Cape Ann along with the city of Gloucester.

This is our third visit to Rockport (our first time with Otis) and if you happen to visit you will want to stay forever just to soak in the unspoiled scenery and charm. Here you will find some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery in the country.

Rockport's downtown and Bearskin Neck is filled with specialty gift and candy shops, art galleries, and some of the best restaurants in the state. 

Motif #1, a very iconic building, a fishing shack well known to students of art and art history as the "most often-painted building in America."

When visiting Cape Ann seafood is a must. My favorite spot for some lobster bisque and a lobster roll is The Lobster Pool Restaurant. The food is amazing and with views to match. 

We strolled through Halibut Point State Park known for hiking and it's granitic quarry pool. In one area you will have a vista of the huge quarry pool with the Atlantic Ocean in the background. Breath-taking!

Gloucester which is a quintessential fishing town, is home to Gorton's Seafood. The Fisherman's Memorial is a must see, the walkway along the harbor is a great place to sit and enjoy the view. 

Rockport is one of my favorite places to Eat, Love, and Revive!

Psst.... We also checked out a Antique Flea Market.... more to come on that.

Have a great week!
