We are leaving tomorrow. Doug had picked this great little beach town that “ back in the day” hosted concerts with names like Dean Martin, The Rat Pack , Aretha Franklin, and the Beatles. Long stretches of beach along the Atlantic Coast remind me of Sunset Beach in southern California and apparently just as crowded. It seems everyone is preparing for the “the season” that just hasn’t quite arrived. It was a little late in the day, so we did a Jeep tour instead of the bike tour of the beaches and Newburyport which is a charming town on the Merrimack River where it joins the Atlantic.
