Rockport is a small seaside community located on the northernmost tip of Cape Ann along with the city of Gloucester.

When you visit Rockport you will want to stay forever just to soak in the unspoiled scenery and charm. Here you will find some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery in the country.

Visit Halibut Point State Park and in one area you will witness the most beautiful birds and wildlife as well as the huge quarry and the Atlantic ocean crashing against the rocky shore below. From Long Beach to Folly Cove you will find spectacular Ocean views including twin light on Thatcher Island.

Rockport has a number of beaches offering variety which include Long Beach, Cape Hedge Beach, Pebble Beach, and Front and Back Beach. The downtown and Bearskin Neck is filled with specialty gift and candy shops, art galleries, and some of the best restaurants in the state.

Motif #1 is located in Rockport and there is a house in Rockport made entirely of newspaper including all the furnishings and it is open for visiting, located at 52 Pidgeon Hill Street. The Paper House is a bit difficult to find, but definitely fascinating and worth the search.

The 2009 movie "The Proposal" starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds was filmed in Rockport and was called Sitka Alaska. You can see all the beautiful outdoor scenes from the movie (less the mountains that were added to the background n the movie) when you visit Bearskin Neck.

MAY ~ Pursuit Gathering ~ Boston MA

YOU'RE INVITED TO A PURSUIT GATHERING IN MAY!

May's gathering theme is: Headshot Opportunity! Specific time we meet will be decided by those confirmed to attend.

This is typically a month for good weather all across the country, so let's take advantage of it and get outside! We encourage everyone to dress up in a way that is reflective of your brand. Attendees will take photos of each other for their own portfolios as well as offer 2 - 4 edited electronic images to each other attendee.
Thank you to our sweet sister Amy for offering to host in her home!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pursuit Community (formerly Pursuit 31) was founded by Karen Stott, and is based on Proverbs 31 in the Bible. We are a Christian community of creative entrepreneurs - more specifically photographers, bloggers / writers, shop owners, calligraphers, and graphic designers - dedicated to cultivating the art of community and building the Kingdom of God as He uses us in our families, neighborhoods, and the world.
Our deep desire is for women to have a local connection to Pursuit Community. Community Groups are a place to come out of the shadows of isolation, and find fellowship & encouragement in real life relationships with like-minded creative entrepreneurs. We long to see these community groups be a source of inspiration, support and growth in women’s lives not only as entrepreneurs, but in their relationships with the Lord, families, and friends.

This is the Pursuit Community Group for Boston, MA and the surrounding areas led by Jenny Lightman.
