When you spend summers on the dunes of Cape Cod exploring the rocky coast of the Massachusetts North Shore is rarely a reality. Thanks to our best lifelong friends we found ourselves on the cliffs of Rockport for the weekend. The perfect off-season escape. Now we can only dream of doing it again when frost bite isn’t a concern.
Everybody had fun exploring the coast.
We found the best shop in downtown Rockport – Lula’s Pantry. A great spot to grab provisions and statement making home accessories – like an octopus trashcan and a gilded turtle box. Not to mention the shop owner discreetly snuck two lollipops in our bag for future bribery.
A great little coffee shop with seating that felt like it was floating over the surf – Bean and Leaf.
And a quaint town for exploring and checking out the flavor of the local architecture.
On our way back home we made a stop at Half-Baked in Beverly – a suggestion by our friend who blogs at The Regurge. Anytime I take Kevin anywhere new I just say that I read about it on The Regurge. The kids approve of anywhere that they get to eat donuts for dessert. All in all a great weekend escape.
