Thank you, Newburyport, for a nice get-away

(Continued)

After farewells with our new-found birder friends, we stopped for some soup and tea at the the Revitalive Cafe. We were sipping the last of our tea, driving away from Newburyport, smiling. We just had a successful, relaxing get-away and it felt good.

Newburyport boasts a population in excess of 17,000. Initially as we drove through some crowded, snow-laden side streets, we were reminded of the unforgiving city streets of South Boston complete with trash can obstacles and confusing traffic patterns. However, if you give this densely populated community on the banks of the Merrimack a chance, if you meet the people who work hard to fulfill your simple dreams you will come away with some golden memories and maybe some new friends who will give you a reason to revisit this charming New England Coastal retreat.
