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.

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

The book about Andre is both interesting and touching. The statue is in his honor overlooking the harbor he loved.
