Rockport. If there was ever a town that invented shabby chic beach style, Rockport should take the credit. Oh those quaint cottages turned into little shops, the narrow walk ways, and the cute little harbour. It was the sort of seaside town that I used to read about in my teeny bopper paperbacks where boy meets girl and falls in love (at least for the summer). My photos totally didn't do this place justice. You just have to be there, with the sun shining on your face and the sweet salty sea breeze blowing through your hair. See what it did? It has turned me into a bumbling romantic. Not even Paris had that effect on me :)
While you're there, you have to try the fried clams at Top Dog. Yumm.
Rockport is about an hour drive from Boston.
