Postcard From Rockport, Massachusetts

Motif #1 at Rockport Harbor, Rockport, Massachusetts

I set the alarm for an early exploration of Rockport.ย  It seems that in order to walk around town in the morning here it is a requirement to have at least one dog.ย  I guess that’s what you do in the winter if you don’t drink whiskey. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Motif #1, located on Bradley Wharf in the harbor town of Rockport, Massachusetts, is a replica of a former fishing shack well known to students of art and art history as “the most often-painted building in America.” The original structure was built in 1840 and destroyed in the Blizzard of 1978, but an exact replica was constructed that same year.

  1. Good morning! Since I don’t have a dog I’d need to find another place to walk. Never heard of this fishing shack but I totally understand where it’s famous for being painted and photographed. You are near our friend Joe and hope you can meet up. We are cold and windy (25 mph gusts) this morning.

    1. We’ve been experiencing nearly perfect northeast weather so far. Hoping to hit some fall color as we head farther north and into New Hampshire and Vermont. Also hoping to avoid the Leaf Peepers so we’ll have to see. Planning to join up with Joe in Boothbay Harbor, ME on Wednesday. Looking forward to it, although I’m sure he isn’t as cool as Monte. ๐Ÿ˜‰
