Best hot dog

<a href="http://www.topdogrockport.com">Top Dog</a>, Bear Skin Neck, Rockport, Mass.  Rockport is a handsome little waterfront town on Cape Ann, about an hour north of Boston, and Bear Skin Neck is thick with tourists all summer long. In the middle of that, Top Dog does one thing and does it well. We took shelter there when a summer storm hurled lightning and sideways rain at the cape. First we ordered dogs, then a second round, then we stayed to marvel at the booming thunder and fast-changing sky.
