Back in August, (yes, I am still that behind) we took the commuter train from North Station in Boston to the town of Manchester-by-the-Sea. Our destination was Singing Beach.
Why is it called Singing Beach? It has to do with the sound that the sand can make sometimes.
They had a walk way leading up to table with this sign. I knew that they charged for entry and I’ve heard of beaches doing that, but it was a little strange. But it was managed, had restrooms, sand wash-off areas, and a snack-shack.
I thought it was cute that they used sand buckets for organizing the salt, pepper, relish, sugar, etc.
There was maybe a half a mile span between rocky areas where all the sun bathers were- the water was too cold to get into- but some people were brave enough.
One of the seagulls. We saw a few of them getting into the soft-sided cooler of a group in front of us
It was a nice day at the beach! Singing Beach is a nice place to visit and has easy access for those that are car-less (like us)! It’s the Rockport Line and passes by Salem (which is where we went this weekend!!!)
