Saturday was the perfect day to stop at the Cupboard at Stage Fort Park and pick up a picnic lunch. We each got the specials: Cape Ann Reuben and Cuban sandwiches. Ordering is simple (cash only) and the sandwiches were quickly wrapped and ready to go. While we were waiting, we tried to assist some visitors with the new parking app. There were some language barriers between us and we weren’t able to help as much as we would have liked.
We took our sandwiches down to the boulevard, set up our chairs, ate our lunch and enjoyed the view and the activity. Lo and behold, the guy with app problems showed up having been unsuccessful with the app so he found other parking. We chatted for a bit and hope his afternoon turned out as pleasant as ours did.
**I do not mean to be negative about the parking app for beach parking. Though it could use some improvements, I think it’s been an overall success even in its first season.**
