Newburyport, MA!

Jim and I took a ride up to Newburyport, MA which is a quaint fun town to spend a sunny day! Ok, it wasn't exactly sunny, but we had a perfect day. We only got rained on when we were leaving!

We started at this cute little coffee shop that is off the main road. There are cushy sofas and chairs in the dimly lit back which we love!

Cappucino is always a treat for me when I am out since I do not make it myself!

We people watched in the center of town with gelatto!

We stopped at this cool antiques barn. They have everything and it is very entertaining to browse!

This Ford was sitting outside in the lot!

This town which settled back in 1635 is on the northern side of the Massachusetts coast.

The wealthy people dock their boats here in the summer! It is a beautiful place to walk along the water.

We grapped a bite at Not Your Average Joe's which is a restaurant with an eclectic menu. Here was the view from our outside table. It has a perfect view for people watching and gazing out at the boats!

Here is the view facing where we ate. So beautiful!

We stopped in The Black Cow where I had fabulous blueberry beer from the Wachusett Brewery (blueberries included)!

Here is a neat playground where you can hang out and the kids can play!

This dog was a horse!!!!!!!! Its legs are almost as long as mine!

He appeared to be a gentle giant!

Restocked this week are clear lanyards in both gold and silver. These match everything in the wardrobe! Available at These are great for wearing ID cards, transportation cards and more....and looking pretty while doing so!

Well I hope everyone who is celebrating has a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! I am looking forward to cookouts everyday with friends and family!!!! Enjoy! ~Val

  3. Hi Val, reallly like the new necklace, it would go with everyting too....

    Your trip to Newburyport looked like tons of fun. Sometimes it is nicest not to have the sun blazing down on you, at least for me it is, then I'm not hot, tired and cranky. LOL Regardless of sun or no, looks like you had a wonderful time. Happy 4th weekend to the both of you.


  4. Looks like you had another beautiful trip. :) I love old New England. Those brick buildings in all your photographs are just gorgeous. If I could, I would choose to live in one of those! Did you find anything at the antique store? I also wanted to let you know we tried your eggplant parmesan, and it was AMAZING. We will never go back to the regular kind again! <3 <3
