Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts. We have been there once or twice previously. Bearskin Neck is a coastal peninsula packed with eclectic shops and restaurants. It is an artist colony, and an area where fisherman are hard at work. Bearskin Neck is also known for the old red fishing building, the “Motif”. The “Motif” is said to be one of the most photographed buildings in the country.
We had a wonderful Adventure to Bearskin Neck. I thought it would be fun to take a walk along this beautiful coastal shopping hub, of course making sure to stop at the “Motif” for some photographs. There were colorful boats, rocky coastlines, and lots of shops along the way. Shadow and Wilma received lots of “hello’s” and love from many as we strolled. We photographed the “Motif” at two separate spots, one from afar, and once where we could walk right over and directly around around this scenic building. I loved the bright yellow lobster traps in contrast with the building, and of course the the buoys hanging on the side. A picturesque landmark to say the least.
After some photographs of the “Motif” we continued to the end of the “Neck” where there was a rocky point going out quite far. We decided not to climb out and along the rocks, but visually explored the area before heading back to the car.
My heart is warmed when we Adventure to places that are so so dog friendly. There were several bowls of water and even a bowl of tennis bowls throughout the “Neck” area. One owner even invited us in to the store, but we only stayed briefly as it was tiny little shop for an energetic puppy. However, if was great to know that we were welcome. We had a spectacular day to be out at Bearksin Neck on this bright and sunny Fall day. (Rating: 4)
