HALLOWEEN!!!!

I can't believe it is here already! I sure am glad I started celebrating in August. Maybe next year I will start earlier.


So get your Indian corn on!


Shine a light on those mums.


And put forward....


Your best pumpkins!


Light a fire.


Visit a pumpkin patch!


Get dressed to the hilt.


And wear your best jewelry.


And maybe eat some baked brain.


Set the table with your finest.


Invite all of your friends.


And make sure to wear your best shoes.

Have a very Happy Halloween!!! The countdown starts tomorrow!!!

More Salem

Salem has a carnival each year during October.


What is scarier than a carnival in the day time?


I want to go to school on a Salem school bus!


And now for the most decorated house in Salem.


Look but do not enter.


There is always a lot going on in this yard.


My worst nightmare.....the stink bugs have grown!


I wonder if they allow trick or treaters to enter on Halloween?


I knew they were alive!

We are traveling so I am not sure if I will post tomorrow. I still have more of the trip to show you though!

Rockport

As we were walking through Rockport, we saw a lobster boat coming in to make a delivery.


We ate that same lobster that evening.


Bearskin Neck is a cute little area of Rockport filled with shops and restaurants.


This lobster shack is the most photographed object in this country.


A lobster raft.


These are the fishermen from the boat going to eat at a local restaurant.


This is the cutest little store.

Rockport Harbor.


Downtown Rockport.

We take off early tomorrow ahead of a snow storm that is bringing between 6-12 inches. This week just flew by. I can't believe the trip is almost over.

Salem II

We went back to Salem yesterday.


We visited all of the witch shops. When we were in this one, a woman came in and asked if they had dust that you could sprinkle on you to make you fly. They said no, they do not carry such a thing. I was so disappointed, I wanted the woman to buy some and I was going to follow her home. I wonder if such a thing exists and do they put a disclaimer on it?


A message on a pole!


Messages everywhere...some scarier than others.


Lots to be seen.


The Blog Tech was a really good sport once again!



The depths of his goofiness never cease to amaze me.


Treats for sale.



The Blog Tech is in the stocks.


We always visit the Old Burying Point.


The tombstones are so interesting.


Oh no!!! Dead Blog Tech. He dies here every year. He has done this for me since he was 3 or 4 years old.



I love this house right next to The Burying Point. I have no idea why it never goes up for sale. I would love to live right next to The Burying Point.

This zombie is seriously scary. He moves and he is covered in bugs.


A grapevine pentagram.


I told The Blog Tech that I was going to buy the 'I'm With Creepy' t-shirt and wear it when I am hanging out with him.


There are lots of historical houses bearing plaques all over town.


What a cute place.


And then I spotted this.


A cute name for a restaurant.


And then it was time for The Blog Tech to do his thing again.


More tomorrow!!!
