Rockport is a picturesque New England seaside town. You know, white clapboard houses, winding tree-lined streets, rocky harbor, colorful small boats, etc. It used to be a quaint fishing village. Now I guess tourism has taken over. The place is packed on summer weekends and it would be impossible to find a parking spot. Nevertheless, it's still a nice little town, and the drive to and from Rockport is one of the most scenic along the coast.

Boulder-strewn coastline is typical here.

    Just stopping in to have another look at your wonderful photos. We were in Rockport and Gloucester about a week ago. Glad you saw the Quarry. Not many people are aware of it.

    I used to live in Rockport. Your well-chosen photos definitely captured the mood of the place!

    Wow. Fabulous opening shot! Thanks for the images. I'll be there over the holiday, if all goes well. Now I remember much more from my childhood!

    Halibut Point is one of my favorite places on Cape Ann. Those slippery round boulders around there (and at Foley Cove in particular) are unfortunately responsible for many a twisted ankle among us divers. But it's worth it. :-)

    I give up! You take these perfect pictures like you had been waiting there all day to time the boat just right. Bah! Teach me, guru! ;-)
