Blue Lobster Grille 

15 Dock Square
Rockport, MA 01966

Will return.

The decoration could be better but we certainly got the best table in the restaurant. The service is good and the food is even better. The fried Haddock is excellent!

I enjoyed a glass of Sauvignon Blanc Line 39, without any trouble – alcohol wasn’t too welcome in this little dry town:

In 1856, a gang of 200 women led by Hannah Jumper swept through the town and destroyed anything containing alcohol in what is called “Rockport’s revolt against rum” and banned alcohol from the town. Except for a period in the 1930s, the town remained one of 15 Massachusetts dry towns. The town remained dry for many years until 2005, when it was voted that alcohol could be served at restaurants. Sales at stores were not allowed until March 2019, when a local market was granted a liquor license and began to sell beer and wine.

Oh may I go at the right time -:)

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.

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. ..

Shalin Liu 是谁 – Now, who’s Liu?

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.
