Shark Week in Rockport
Day 2: April 12, 2013
I had visited your on-line site for a couple of years and thought it looked inviting. You have made an enchanted living space with a vivid color scheme and soothing art hangings. I very much appreciated living in a well cared for and modern cottage with all the comforts of home rather than with funky 1980s furnishings and colors. It is very pleasing and restive here.
The thoughtfulness of all the little amenities you offer make this place perfect. George and I sat at breakfast asking each other if we brought lotion - alas, Rosemarie had it in the bathroom. Not having to run to the store for small items is more than appreciated.
Day 3: August 13, 2013
Shark swam up into Front Beach - we saw it early in the am, then about 4pm. Two women (one 73, a resident, one about 40) both in black and white polka dot bathing suits were swimming when someone spotted the fin. "Get out of the water" we all shouted and they swam in. Sand shark about 6' came right into shore. The younger women said she kept seeing a shadow underneath her while she was swimming. Harbormaster ferried kids who were on the dock back to shore - quite exciting. Turns out the shark was hurt and trying to dislodge a hook. We like Long Beach and Front Beach so far. Our favorite places to eat are: The Red Skiff for breakfast (cod fish cakes); The Franklin in Gloucester for a perfect meal; Virgillio's for the best Italian sandwich around (try the meatball with roasted peppers); and the Willow Rest on the way to Anisquam, a market specialty shop with the best cook around. The eggplant sandwich is beyond delicious. We did not have a bad meal in Rockport or Gloucester. AND, if you stay at the Periwinkle Cottage, you'll have a refrigerator to keep your leftovers in and a cute gas range to warm them up for when you don't want to go out. A most satisfying stay in every way.
