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.

WHERE DO YOU LOVE TO ESCAPE DURING SUMMER VACATION?

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.

VAry my exoeriences a little. There is a new hotel on the Northshore I would like to visit. 🐳The ocean ANYWHERE gives me true soul relaxation....transforms my inner self. πŸ¦€ I am a seafood lover too!!!!

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
