What's in a name?

When you think of "witches", what's a location that comes to mind? Salem MA! Salem's full of them...or rather stories about them. There is no shortage of "haunts" to visit and hear (again and again) about the witch trials of 1692. They certainly make use of it in everything to see, eat & do there! ...but it was fun. We actually only took in one "attraction" regarding the famous witches, and spent the rest of the day enjoying Salem's harbor and other historical sites. The house that "The House of Seven Gables" was written by a hometown guy, Nathaniel Hawthorn. He often visited with the owners of the house he used in his book. Both his home and the one of "Seven Gables" we toured.

They also have a great harbor there, as this was Salem's main source of income in those long ago days. They even had a small lighthouse, lucky me!

It was just a leisurely day walking the small town, enjoying the various buildings & museums. A "must stop", but with more of a "chuckle" than a "wow".
