Another sign that spring is near: Down River Ice Cream opening this weekend (Sat Mar 16 at noon) and White Farms in Ipswich opening March 15. I do not know what that means for the Gloucester location of White Farms. No sign posted yet.
Getting taken for ice cream when we were kids was a big treat as it involved a 20 minute drive with 6 kids. I think our dad took us to give Mom some peace for a bit. We would usually get soft twists (chocolate for me, why bother with vanilla?) but today I prefer hard ice cream. Now there are all kinds of ways to have soft twist ice cream….it’s a wonderful world.
