The Mox and the Sea

To escape the sweltering 90 degree heat, we decided to take puppy on a road trip to Rockport,MA. You see we don't have air conditioning in our apartment and we figured the nice cool air conditioned car would be a good change from our stuffy apartment! We've actually been to Rockport several times before though never in the summer time.

Thanks to me we got lost finding the town center and somehow stumbled upon the Halibut Point State Park. This park is pretty cool as it used to be a granite quarry (unfortunately no swimming is allowed inside). The trail also leads to the beach, though don't expect the traditional sandy beach. The flat smooth rocks go all the way into the water. Very cool! Puppy got her first taste of the ocean. She seemed somewhat apprehensive as she stepped into the water. She even tried to sit down but then her furry butt got all wet. So cute ... indeed Retriever she is not ;)

Me and puppy enjoying the cool sea water as it swept over our feet/paws:

After our little hike we headed to Bearskin Neck for food. They've got such yummy treats there, but that's for another post. Here's a picture teaser.
