we didn't do much shopping, but i did stop in to black ink and loved it. super cute gift shop.
next up was a bit of a wander down newbury street. a mix of boutiques and chain stores, and the buildings were all so lovely.
steph dropped us off at good harbor beach and we immediately started planning a vacation there for next summer. absolutely picture perfect.
after steph was done working for the day, we wandered around her town of rockport. to say it was charming would be a massive understatement. so quintessentially new england!
hokusai was way too crowded for any decent photos, but the modern wing! so good!!
after the museum, we had lunch on newbury street and then took an uber over to check out the lawn on d. unfortunately, i missed the fact that they were throwing a block party that day. needless to say, it was crazy crowded.
we were close to the water, so we walked that way instead and hung out on the harbor for a bit.
it was such a lovely long weekend. hope to make a return visit soon.
