The town is absolutely charming! A wonderful mix of colonial New England and Victorian house styles, I was in my glory snapping photos! We took John's mom out to dinner and I had the best clam chowder and steamed mussels that I've ever had...mmm!! Seafood is my absolute favorite food and there was plenty of it!
John and I took in some of the old cemeteries as well, Sleepy Hollow being my favorite with the graves of Louisa Mae Alcott, Henry Thoreau and Nathaniel Hawthorne, just to name a few. Louisa Mae Alcott's Little Women was my favorite book of my childhood, I still have my old copy. The story inspired my love of the Victorian age, in fact my first daughter is named Megan.
Here are some of my favorite homes from Rockport, Concord, Essex, Ipswich, Newbury Port, Gloucester, and Salem.
