In case you've forgotten where Rockport, MA is, here's the map.
We're right up there in the right hand corner of Cape Ann. See it there in red? My husband likes to tease me because I still prefer maps. Now I love technology, I really do, but how am I supposed to look at all of Cape Ann on a 4"x4" GPS screen I ask?
Walking up Bear Neck there was almost nothing open. It was a virtual ghost town. Cold, windy, and quiet. Plenty of parking though! A tourists dream! The Bean & Leaf was about the only game in town so we popped in and had some lunch.
Cute place, but tiny. Very tiny. We waited for a seat while the girl made our latte's.
Elise chose an iced mocha latte and found it quite delicious! This was her first experience with Sugar in the Raw. She thought it was a little freaky looking at first but it passed with flying colors.
Me, I was more intent on warmth so a hot mocha latte it was. Delish! We split a turkey wrap along with a small bag of Cape Cod chips. Cape Cod chips on Cape Ann .... hmmmm.
This was the view from our table.
I really wanted to go photograph that big, tall, cool tree behind the red house but by this point I was chilled to the bone and wasn't up for it, plus we still had more stops to make. It's a must for our Spring trip back to the Cape.
Great water views from our table. Check out that Merganser over there!
There's probably about 5-6 tables to chose from and they pretty much all have the same wonderful view.
My only issue would be that someone needs to clean the outside of the glass. It was covered in dirty streaks so I was surprised I captured the shots I did. Certainly in the Spring a squeegee is in order to clear things up. After all, the view is where it's at.
That and a latte ; )
