Halibut Point State Park is Amazing

In early September, I went on a vacation for a few days to Boston and to some of the towns within commuting distance, including Rockport on the Cape Ann Peninsula. The highlight in Rockport was walking from the center of town to Halibut Point State Park.

It used to be a granite quarry, and the quarry is full of water now. It's stunning.

Along with walking around the quarry, you can look out over the ocean.

And head down to a beach layered in slabs of rock.

Have a picnic here.

The walk to and from town is also wonderful, with beautiful yards and gardens along the way, and openings to the sea that tease the imagination.

I felt lucky to visit these places.

This looks like a great place, As I have mentioned I am also a walker and I love to explore places like this.

Next time I am in the Rockport area I will try to visit Halibut Point State Park.
