My Place by the Sea in Rockport
If you read my last post, you know that I went to Rockport on Tuesday to celebrate my birthday. I had dinner with my friend Debbi and we dined at Brackett's Oceanview. Then on Thursday night, I went back to Rockport with my sister and our friends Mary and Don.
Mary and Don have been married for 30 years so Sheila and I took them out to celebrate. Mary wanted to go to Rockport. We decided to go to My Place by the Sea which is a restaurant located at the tip of Bearskin Neck. It is as close to the ocean as you can get.
This is my dinner, Lobster Quesadillas. It's actually an appetizer but I ate it as a dinner. Well, I split it with my sister and she split her dinner with me.
She had the panko crusted cod. So did Don. Both dishes were delicious.
Mary went with the Roasted Salmon. We had the best bread, you really didn't need butter, it was that good. But the butter was an herb butter so we ate it.
Here's a shot of my sister with a cool iron grate in the background.
The inside of the restaurant as seen from our table. The decor was clean and simple and really lovely. The curtains were made of linen and tied up with raffia. Neutral colors were used throughout. What color do you really need when you gave the big blue ocean right outside your window? The striped awning you see is outside on the patio.
Mary and Don clinked their dessert spoons to celebrate 30 years of marriage. We split a dessert of warm apple crunch with cinnamon ice cream and a caramel drizzle. Yum!
The deck was not used because it was windy and a bit cool out. It had rained earlier in the day. We thought the night might be a washout but we were wrong.
Before we headed out, I just had to take a photo of this fun hat display.
Sometime, I would love to return and dine on this patio. It is so pretty when it is illuminated at night.
As you can see, the sun was trying to come out. Would I get the pinky sky I was hoping for?
This is Jodi, out for her evening walk. We met her outside the restaurant.
Look the sky is getting pink!
We looked in the window at Helmut's Streudel shop. Closed again! Are they ever open? We wanted to take home a box of streudel.
The Motif No 1 was looking good as always.
So was the harbor.
The sunset was beautiful, the cloudiness had cleared and we took a few shots of the gorgeous scene and then we headed home. We had a wonderful evening that felt more like a mini vacation.
