I wonder how cities and towns get their name and who gets to decide what a place is called. For example, who came up with Worcester for a city name??? Well, one place I know for sure how it got it’s name. One look at the beach and you can see why this place is called Rockport. Every inch of beach is covered with giant boulders from the nearby quarry. While scouring the beach I saw this tree struggling to survive where you wouldn’t expect. Although looking at the tree, I don’t know if I would call it surviving.
