One more Rockport memory......

And then I think I've told you about everything we did.
I loved the Heritage district (what I would call their Main Street). Altho there is a shopping strip with all the regular today stores.... like Walmart, Sears, McDonalds etc. Rockport's downtown is so very quaint and charming.
One thing I did admire down there was their unabashed love of COLOR. They are certainly not shy about using it anywhere and everywhere. Not only do they paint their little stores in bright oranges and greens and purples....but many of the older small shanty homes boast the same wild shades. Sometimes we would be just driving around in the residential district and looking at all the regular homes.....then wham.... suddenly there sits *shartruse*!!
Or tourquoise! It was so fun.
Can you imagine living in one of those homes? I bet the people are a blast. haha

See the General Store? (purple with yellow posts by the tourquoise store) That's where I bought my Jim Shore figurines.

Don't forget you can click on the pics to enlarge them.
