We met up with Julie & Jared before lunch today. What a great time we had exploring Salem, MA. They really take the witch thing to some extent. Apparently as Halloween gets closer they start winding up for the festivities. All over the town were stores related to witchcraft and people in witch regalia.
We were also surprised to learn that Salem MA was the primary merchant port until the mid 1800’s. When they went away from sails and the boats required deeper drafts, the port was to shallow so they lost out to Boston and NY.
What would a major port be without a few “Pirates”
We have a few climbing the wall with a not so vigilant guard down below. We they had Iphones back then? Then a couple of them guarding the Pirate Museum Entrance.
We had hotdogs for lunch. More varieties than I have seen before. They were great!
Of particular note is that we were introduced to Gelato by Julie and Jared plus some other decadent chocaholic items. Another great taste treat, it was awesome.
So again we thank Julie and Jared for some great sights, but most of all great time together with family.

I wonder where you might take me.”
