Salem!!!

The Salem Witch House.


Teddy runs to Hawthorne Square.


It is her favorite place.


She doesn't even look back as we leave to shop. She is after squirrels.


This is what you see on Salem during the month of October. Bus loads of school kids are released on the town.


Crow Haven Corner. This used to be Laurie Cabot's place but she has moved to the wharf.


This restaurant constantly changes names and owners.


Some of the offerings.


A spell book with a recipe for Witch's Brew.


A lot of the stores were closed since it was Monday. We will be returning later in the week to visit these places.


I love the litter signs.


T-shirts for sale everywhere.


I know quite a few people I could give this one to.


Do you want to have your fortune told?


You can visit real haunted house here if you take the ghost tour.



Witch hats anyone?


This guy just screamed The Exorcist to me.


They have seriously cool brooms.


I like the sweat pants with the skeleton hands on the butt.


We are off to Maine for the day! More later!

Jaz,
I've been enjoying your blog for a long time, but haven't had a chance to start at the beginning and read forward. So, I'm curious to know whether you are a witch or just enjoy all things magic?

My husband was salivating over your braised pork and cauliflower dish. Can't wait to try it.

Enjoy your trip!

Cheers!
Teri

Love all the shops. Interesting how even the billboards get into the spirit of things. The spell book looks mezmerizing. Salem is wonderful. The only time I was in Maine, a moose got in my path on the road. It was a scary standoff. Hope your visit there is enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing more photos of your adventure.

Thanx for posting a virtual tour : one can see that you are in your element!

Lois said...

I read an article in our local Hamilton paper yesterday about this man who went to visit Salem and went from someone who never decorated at halloween to a person who puts on an incredible show each year and charges admission by food donation. He collects tons of food each year for the food bank, all beacause he visited Salem. I want to go! Maybe next year.

Carol said...

Love seeing roru posts! Thnx!

I love your pics! We were there this past weekend and had a lovely time! It was VERY crowded on Essex in the evening, and there were quite a few preachers out with LOUD megaphones trying to "save" people! That was the first time I had experienced that on Essex St. Seems much more peaceful on a monday! :)

Jennifer Rose said...

Toriz said...
