Visiting Rockport

July 24, 2019

.

We spent the whole day yesterday exploring the adorable sea town of Rockport, Massachusetts. It has a lovely little artist’s colony that was made famous by Rudyard Kipling’s book, “Captains Courageous”… which was also made into one of Mummy’s very favorite old movies!!! If you haven’t seen it, try and find the old black and white version with Spencer Tracy, Freddie Bartholomew, Lionel Barrymore and Mickey Rooney. You will love it! Our first stop was at a little shop called “KATIE’S GIFT SHOP” and OF COURSE, Katie yet again claimed it was HER SHOP… it is NOT. After buying a little yorkie planter, THE REAL KATIE, who owns the shop, came outside to meet all of us. She was sooooo nice and is a doggie lover herself. She has lots of doggie items in her shop, so if you find yourself in Rockport, stop in and say hello to her… and tell her that Millie sent you! ??

We wandered down the sidewalk, buying chocolates for Mummy and Daddy at a local candy shop and then stopping to take in the sights around the bay. It didn’t take long before we found “ROY MOORE” who sells fresh lobster! YUMMY YUMMY IN OUR FAT TUMMIES! They had an outdoor patio at the back of the shop and were very doggie friendly, so we decided to stop there for some fresh whole lobsters with melted butter! They had their own lobster tanks and cooked your lobster up fresh as you ordered it. WOWZA, I mean this was some mighty fine tasting lobster. They call it “lobsta” up here, but whatever… Mummy and Daddy couldn’t stop eating it! And YES, we all got a little taste of LOBSTA too!!! ???? I think I could learn to love living here in Rockport.  Make sure to stop here for dinner on your next visit to the area… you won’t be sorry! ?❤️?

We were getting tired so Mummy said it was time to head back to the YORKIE EXPRESS, but as we drove down the road, we passed a HUGE SHARK hanging outside a shop. Daddy pulled in closer so we could read the posted sign. It was an EXACT REPLICA of a GREAT WHITE SHARK that had been caught off the shores of Salisbury Beach in 1957. It weighed 4,019 pounds and had taken 5 hours to haul in! I’m not sure if this is REALLY TRUE OR NOT, but I’m not taking any chances! ???

All in all, it was a perfect day with nice cool temperatures. Maybe the heat wave is finally behind us! YIPPPEEE. ?

Oh the Lobster looks delicious and I’m so glad you all got a taste. Shellfish is an excellent source of glucosamine for all your little yorkie joints. I love Katie’s shop and the big shark look very scary. Have great day today! xoxo

Lobster is my favorite food! I have never been to Maine but my husband has and ate delicious lobster. Katie’s gift shop sounds nice and sounds like town was pet friendly. I am so glad Millie that everyone is enjoying your trip. Continue to enjoy your trip and stay safe.

I’m so glad that you got out of Cape Cod just in time. The seaside town of Rockport sounds adorable. I, too, have that same Yorkie planter – found at a tiny nursery in Berkeley! I love seeing all of your pictures and Katie continues to crack me up! Kiss, Kiss!!

Rockport sounds lovely. I’ve been in the New England states before, but never this town – someday will get there. Love the pictures, but that Shark – boy he looks scary. So glad you were all in the stroller! Weather is cooler in PA also, low to mid 80s during day, mid to upper 60s at night – my kind of weather.. Tell daddy – Mia will have a little ‘talk’ with him soon, about his forgetfulness – LOL

Ms Becky… it is very interesting that when something catches his eye… like an 18foot long shark… he pulls right off the road for a closer look! ?

I’ve only had Lobster once and that was when I was in Alpina, Michigan and I only had the tail not a whole one. Sureeeee Daddy pulls over to see the giant fake shark LOL That sounded like a nice store at Katies…….. I can’t wait for you to get to Mr. Ed’s your eyes will be big as saucers! LOL you better save some room to take things home! LOL it’s still pretty warm here but not as bad as it had been those few days. Be safe and have fun!
