If you’ve ever watched The Proposal with Sandra Bullock, then you’ve seen Rockport, MA. The movie was supposed to take place in Alaska (just envision big mountains in the background of these pics 😉 ) but they really filmed it in this quaint little New England town.
My parents and I decided to spend the entire day meandering our way around, enjoying one of the first (of many) warm summer days. 😀
The entire dock was full of these lobster traps!
Aside from taking in the scenery and fresh air, there was lots of shopping!
And more shopping. (poor dad…haha )
Don’t worry, we all had a blast walking around the quaint New England town. 😉
We also stopped at the Green Leaf Cafe which is one of my favorite sandwich shops in town. I always order the hummus wrap on wheat because it’s so fresh and delicious, filled with roasted red peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, hummus (of course), and alfalfa sprouts. Yum!
I’ve always said that if I could choose to live anywhere, Rockport would be high up on my list of favorite places to live. Everything is within walking distance which I love. I could run to a local cafe for my morning latte, bring breakfast back to the ocean, and bike along the coastline. *Sigh.* Love, love, love it!
From there we traveled to a quarry, which looked like a giant pool of water surrounded by lush greenery. Gorgeous!
Everything was so breathtaking and tranquil. I do believe this is New England at its finest. 😀
There were also tons of ladybugs by the rocks. I swear I must have had at least a dozen land on my leg. They’re the only bug that I don’t squirm over. 😉
The day ended with more walking and more of just taking it all in. I love laid back days where there’s nothing but the ocean for noise and the smell of fresh ocean air. Love it!
Dad treated everyone to coffees before we all headed home!
Chocolate soy au lait? Yes Please! 😀
Gorgeous day. Gorgeous views. Wonderful coffee (and food!) Awesome parents. Perfect Day. 😀
The rest of my day is going to entail a whole lot of homework since I completely put it all behind me yesterday (eeks!!) One last push before finals and graduation!
Question: If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
