Scenes from Rockport, Massachusetts

Rockport, Massachusetts, is a delightful town on the sea that is a summer destination for hundreds of people.

We recently came back from a few days in this charming place.

Yes, it's a bit touristy in the summer but I still love it.

It's quaint, picturesque and quintessentially New England in style.

We stayed, once again, at Captain Bounty by the Sea, which is right on a lovely beach.

Yes, the water was very chilly but quite refreshing on a hot, summer's day.

The shops along a main street are filled with all kinds of doodads and the view of the ocean at the end of the street is breathtaking.

Ahhhhhh, Rockport. It stole a part of my heart.

We will have other posts on Rockport so, if interested, stay tuned.

Rockport looks so inviting in the summer heat. I am so lucky to have the Pacific ocean so close to me. I have a favorite spot in Dana Point that I LOVE to go to in the heat of summer and just sit on a bench and watch God's glory.

My MIL goes to Rockport. She's painted that red barn on the water several times! I feel like I've been there myself! We're from MI and people here usually head south, but they head to Rockport.

One of my great-grandmothers was from Rockport so when I saw your post on Aiken House & Gardens I had to check it out immediately. Thank you for sharing all the lovely photos! I look forward to visiting Rockport in the future.

All the best
