Salem, Massachusetts

We made it to Boston!!! We had fun driving through New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and into Massachusetts. It feels New England and I love it! It's beautiful everywhere you look...especially by the water. We are using our rewards points from our credit card to get free hotel nights so we are at the north Boston Colonial's really nice just not downtown but that's okay....we are 10 miles from Salem. If you know me at all I LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween. And if you have heard about Salem you it's a real Halloween town from their witchy history. We went and what a neat place. I HAD to get a picture of my two pumpkins with the town sign...won't this be cool framed for Halloween. Witch Heights is the name of the elementary school there and the football team is The Witches. There is a celebration the whole month of October there....I want to go...can you imagine how pretty with those homes and trees in the fall.

I liked this sign too.

Here was a marina in Salem...Madi didn't like the extreme fishy smell.

Today is Steve's birthday. When we were planning this trip Boston was the #1 place he wanted to for a birthday treat we planned to arrive in Boston on his birthday. Back in 1960, Dunkin Doughnuts was born in Boston. Today they are on every street corner. So we picked up a dozen to celebrate Steve's gotta do what you gotta do when your on the go. It was funny, Ben and Madi could hardly sing they were laughing so hard. Tomorrow...Freedom Trail downtown Boston, Harvard and Boston you have any suggestions of must do's here?

Steve Bodi's brother is a professor at Boston College. Dr.John Michael Bodi.
On the Freedom Trail. See Paul Rever's House and The Old Church. The House you have to pay extra, but the church is free I think.
On your return go to The Newport Mansions in Providence, RI. It is a must drive through. One you will never forget. Plus, the little city area is a great place for botiques and places to eat. ON
