Beantown, Beaches, and Being Back

We traveled up to the Boston area over spring break to watch my son play college lacrosse and take in the beauty of Boston's Northern shore area. I believe we visited every single seaport town from Boston to Newburyport. Breathtaking scenery... although cold and damp. Of course, I managed to get a little thrifting in, along with walks on the beach, hiking, hunting for sea glass, and exploring the city. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera -- so, I had to take all of these photos with my cell phone... not too shabby, I guess. Here are some shots of my favorite little town, Rockport, MA:

Don't you love this little ice cream store, tucked between two buildings? Too bad it was closed for the season (although at 40 degrees, maybe that's a good thing).
Lobster pots, everywhere...

A few finds from Rockport:

That's all...more to photograph when I really get back in the swing of things!
