Boston Day Trip: Wingaersheek Beach

Wingaersheek Beach is a perfect New England beach -- small, sandy and picturesque, about an hour north of Boston, in Gloucester, MA-- I loved this beach. Here's a ticker-tape of pictures showing the pretty scenery there:


Wingaersheek Beach is situated on Annisquam River on the mouth of Ipswich Bay
Sand is very sparkly here

towards the end of the beach closer to the harbor

a floating house
end of the line

 Thought about trying the cold gazpacho soup for $3.50 a bowl at the snack shack
After leaving Wingaersheek Beach, we drove to Cape Ann's Marina to have lunch:
Bloody Marys, lobster rolls and clam chowder at Mile Marker 1 Restaurant

Then drove further up the coast and stopped in quaint Rockport before turning around and heading back back to Boston.  Of course I stopped to pick up a couple of boxes of salt water taffy while there!

 We had to stop and take a picture of this house --13 Pleasant Street, Rockport, MA -- built in 1810, the house is narrow in the front, but goes waaayy back... think it may have been turned into condominiums... pretty, but reminded me a little of 1313 Mockingbird Lane...
