Gloucester, MA

We drove by quickly after Rockport. Didn’t find her attractive, and left.

Bean & Leaf Cafe


12 Bearskin Neck
Rockport, MA 01966

Loving it.

Great view and vibe. Cute. Small. Neat.

What not to like? Two bay windows are used as condiments stations. They serve simple fares, so it could be a whole day affair.

Roy Moore Lobster Co.


39 Bearskin Neck,
Rockport, MA 01966

Will return.

This little shack is a good place for a quick bit or slow chow (BYOB) on their patio at the back, by the Rockport Harbor. Although I don’t find their fish cake delicious (dead & thick: floury) but the crab s and lobsters are good. The service is amiable and efficient.

The two seater by the door is made from lobster trap – neat.

Kennebunkport, ME

This town is made famous by the elder George Bush, the #41. But reportedly they’re known to the locals as a favorite summer vacation spot.

Sunset

An evening at Rockport, MA. The clouds add charm to the sunset.

Shalin Liu Performance Center


A web file photo
37 Main St,
Rockport, MA 01966

Rockport Music-Shalin Liu Performance Center is awesome. The backdrop of the stage is spectacular. And the interior is elegant and simple. Unfortunately our event is a movie: The Lehman Trilogy, which screen blocked the view. Oh well, we’ll just have to visit it again.

The Lehman Trilogy is an interesting play turned into a movie. Three actors and a piano – the pianist is a girl. It’s about the Wall Street firm that fall in 2008 – still remember Glucksman and Peterson … the trader won. ..

Rockport, MA


Very glad to have found this little arty town on way down from Acadia Park. It’s 40 miles north of Boston and a little north from Salem.

Granite was or is big so is arts, streets are lined with galleries. The comfy chair and stone sculptures. We got there early enough to see the sunset, then went to the Shalin Liu Performance Center for the Lehman Trilogy.

We dined at Bean & Leaf Cafe, Blue Lobster GrilleRoy Moore Lobster. Hula Moon Cafe is a good place for breakfast too.

5.5 miles sea kayaking


39 Cottage Street
Bar Harbor, ME

A wonderful day out on the sea: mostly cloudy with gentle winds. Along the way from Bartlett Narrows to Seal Cove, we see many porpoises during the trip. 9公里 一直有海豚陪伴. We used Sea Kayak, $50 for 5 hours – including a pep talk and travel time. The actual time on the kayak is about 3 hours. Our trip ends early.

Jeannie’s Great Maine Breakfast


15 Cottage St
Bar Harbor, ME 04609

Probably won’t return.

A decent place to have a hot breakfast. The service is good and the food is plentiful. The home made strawberry marmalade is yummy. The home fried is hard and tasteless. The serving staff is professional.

Project Social Kitchen & Bar


20 Mount Desert St
Bar Harbor, ME 04609

Will return.

A small place that offers small plate in a small hotel that facing the Village Green. All is good: urbane, lively with good wine, service and food. The serving staff are young women, friendly yet professional. The three wines we’ve are all delicious: Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc, Sean Minor Pinot Noir and Elena Walch. The warm almonds started us off on the right track.

Their bathroom has many frames … do you see a picture there?
