Once again our travel plans included a visit to Rockport Marine Park and the statue of Andre. He still has a great view of the harbor where he once romped.

A gorgeous little seaside park great for photos, relaxing, watching folks work on their boats and others walk their dogs! Fun place to come to.

I hadn’t thought about Andre the seal for many years until I saw his statue (life size?) in Rockport harbor. A very nice tribute to one of Rockport’s former summer resident.

The story of Andre the Seal would be of great interest to kids and adults. The statue, located at the marine park, is wonderfully done and is a nice touch to the local histroy of Rockport

I read the book and had to go once I found out a statue had been dedicated in the late ‘70’s, with Andre there for the honor. Love the statue, and the park by the harbor is so nice!
