Day-cation to Rockport, Massachusetts

About two hours from where I live- one hour north of Boston- is the North Shore (locally the Not Shah)...I took about a gazillion pictures on this picture perfect day, which started out with me losing a tire on the highway- not cool! So it began a bit stressfully but check out how it ended...

So, the porches of the homes overlooking the waterfront here are full of found shells and flowers in late-summer glory. Swoon!  This shell shop (see window above) is a favorite stop of Saundra Bullock's, according to an article posted on the wall inside.

Above, the beautiful harbor scene off T-wharf. The famous red fishing shack covered in buoys is painted and photographed all over the's somewhat famous, and is called "Motif #1." The town sells its likeness in teeshirts, art, ornaments, and necklaces...

Check out the seagull on the chimney, above.

I love this red reflection! Here are some shots of the main drag heading down to the jetty in town:

I love this little Yorkie and her pink anchor print dress:

This little boy below peeking in the window is actually a mannequin. Cute!

 I was taking photos of the jetty and lighthouse (far distance) and caught this cute couple sharing a kiss on the rocks...People, if you recognize yourselves, let me know and I'll send you a copy.

Below, the water in the harbor was especially clear and almost tropical, with colorful plantlife and rocks.

Lastly, some of the colorful wooden boats I saw at the harbor here.
