Rockport, Cape Ann: Terrific Day Trip
Well, surprise, surprise! My pre-teen and teen kids weren't bored, whiney, annoyed, or annoying today on our daytrip to Rockport on Cape Ann, near Gloucester. It's a beautiful area with little shops, tons of art galleries, lots of ice cream and salt water taffy, and breath-taking views. We walked for hours and saw every little thing, with not one single complaint! Now, I have well mannered, lovely kids, but this was an unusually pleasant day. Try it soon, most things close after labor day and reopen in April.
This is my hometown!! My parents owned an Inn there for over 20 years so I LOVE IT!! Thanks for the tip, you probably bumped into my kids there today visiting their grandparents - they were the ones with the ice-cream and candy bags :)
