Folly Cove, Rockport, 1930

Folly Cove has historically been known for hosting small fishing boats in the hake fishery, and also for loading Cape Ann granite onto granite schooners. A breakwater was built there for that purpose by the Rockport Granite Company in 1906. Today, Folly Cove is known for its scuba diving and the "eat-in-the-rough" Lobster Pool Restaurant: http://www.lobsterpoolrestaurant.com/main/index.php

Folly Cove, One of Our Many Treasures

I took a short drive with my camera around sunset. Folly Cove Always looks great, but for some reason is difficult to photograph. But I pulled over anyway and took this picture. In the summer, the sun sets over Ipswich Bay at the Lobster Pool http://www.lobsterpoolrestaurant.com/main/index.php It's the only place other than Key West that the customers stop eating, stand up, and applaud the sunset.

As I was making a few photographs of the sunset over Folly Cove, I heard a babbling brook. It must have been the snow melt from across the road and the quietness of the season. I saw and photographed another angle of this that included a length of silver ribbon entangled in the bush. It made me think of all the wonderful times I've had there with my late parents, my sister (Painter Barb), and now Janet. I think of all the "eat in the rough" memorable occasions that others have had at the Lobster Pool. It's very special.

Wreath made from rope found at Folly Cove From Mary Bowles

Mary Bowles writes-

Hi Joey,

I was at Folly Cove a couple of weeks ago with my niece and nephew (Lily & Stevie) and we picked up a bunch of the pieces of colorful rope that wash up along the shore there.  I bought a wreath frame and today we used the blue and orange rope to make a wreath.  I took this picture of them holding the finished product at Long Beach.  They were really excited to make something out of stuff they found!
