Hooked on Beach Days....

Today we went to this "family friendly" beach, which we love in Rockport, MA.
The Beach is known as Long Beach.
It is so nice it will have you hooked!
I like the fact that it has that little inlet strip when the tide comes in.
My little one loves to play in it, because the water is warm and nice.
The parking price isn't too bad, and today there was hardly any people.
Not wall to wall like on the weekend....
It is so much better during the week.
The down fall for some of you may be there is no snack bar,
but we have no problem filling a cooler at home
full of sandwiches, munchies, and drinks.
Plus side is....the bathroom and changing rooms are the
cleanest I have ever been in, fresh new paint every summer!

When laying on the beach you look out onto these twin lighthouses.
There are large rocks along the sides of the beach and the lighthouse island,
which make it fun for the kids to climb and look for star fish.
Last week another Julia reader wrote in about Rockport, MA.
I was glad to see someone else hooked on this quaint town.
for a lovely tour of one of my favorite towns!

And to see what others are hooked on go to
Are you dreaming about your Beach Day now???

Who couldn't be hooked on that beach? Makes me wish we'd been able to make it to NC this year. :) Visiting from Julia's party. :)

I love the beach! We just bought a house and the beach is at the end of the street. It's one of my favorite features of the neighborhood!. Have a great weekend and I hope you make it to the beach sometime.
