Plum Island

We took a short trip to Plum Island for a weekend getaway.
We left on Friday in the afternoon and arrived at our little cottage at Blue Inn just across from the beach.

We immediately went to the beach. It was quite windy, overcast and chilly but that did not stop Laura from dipping into the ocean.

We drove around Plum Island and came across this small light house at the must northern part of the island.

We went into Newburyport to look around and had dinner at a Mexican restaurant called Agave which was great. The food was good and we stuffed ourselves.
Here's Laura on a buoy at the Maritime museum.

The next morning, we got a basket for breakfast which included fruits, juices, muffins, croissants and yogurt with granola! So cute.
We did a little more exploring. It was still somewhat overcast in the morning but warmer. We took a very brief trip to Salisbury beach.
Then back to Newburyport. The sun started peeking through and it got a lot warmer. We walked around some more.

We ate a late lunch at Angie's restaurant in Newburyport and then went back to the beach.

It was warmer but the wind would not die down. Laura had a great time in the water.

Sunday was a gorgeous sunny summer day but we had to say goodbye.
I took a lot of pictures of our little place. This is the balcony of our cottage.

Then just before leaving, we stopped at Bob Lobster and got some yummy fried clams before heading back home. We had a really good time and it was nice getting away for a little while.
