Cape Ann – The Other Cape

What was once a little-known cluster of beaches and pretty beach-side houses is now a magnet for tourists, whale watchers and sun-bathers. We chose Memorial Day weekend for a quick beach getaway to Cape Ann, in Northeastern Massachusetts. It must be something like six years since we have been to this rocky shore and our previous experience was one of quaint shops, beautiful beaches, and desolate sand dunes.

Maybe it’s the timing, but this time the place was hopping. A little too much if you ask me.
