Beach, Bikes, Bands and More -- Summer is Finally Here
We're in the middle of another great weekend here at the Blue Shutters. There are guests from all over the US -- New Jersey, Michigan, Oregon, Conn., NY, the Carolinas and from just down the street in Newburyport. Last night we checked out the downtown block party -- great to see Main Street buzzing with folks eating, drinking, shopping, strolling and enjoying the live music. We heard great reports on dinner last night at the Seaport Grille, just down the road. Lots of early risers this morning -- including walkers, runners and bicyclists. We've talked about the great biking here on Cape Ann -- one of our guests is so serious about this that he shipped his bike here from Oregon. If it's the beach you're into, today's the day - maybe the beach day so far this year (you can tell by the cars lining up at the beach parking lot at 8 this morning). Looks like the summer has finally arrived -- let's hope it's here to stay. Until October at least.
