Lunch in Rockport, MA


Yesterday was a gorgeous day - a great break in our otherwise rainy week. Perfect for lunch in Rockport, Massachusetts, USA!






Rockport is famous for its beauty - making it easy on photographers!

Toward the end of Atlantic Avenue, a local resident showed us a footpath to a granite headland overlooking the harbor. There are 3 granite benches, plus great views and rocks to climb on.


Just look for the footpath sign, and head down the thin paved walkway.






Rockport is dog friendly - with lots of outdoor dining options for humans with dogs. Unfortunately, Bailey couldn't join us yesterday.

That is just spectacular. The colors are wonderful in your photos - would be good templates for a dye day. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Wow, it looks like all the pictures you see in the magazines. The quality of light looks interesting too. I have to agree with Sharon that the pictures would be great inspiration for a dye day! -Renee

Beautiful photographs. I've really got to get up there one of these days. It doesn't look like it was too crowded, too.

Rockport is extremely photogenic, so everywhere we turned there were great shots.
