I wanted every one of them! Alas, I didn't buy any.
This was easily my fave gift shop. I only got a shot glass and some postcards. And 2 fridge magnets.
But when I do go back, I'm getting this one!
More wooden buildings in this part of town.
We were disappointed that the House of the Seven Gables was fenced all the way around it. You had to pay to access the grounds and house and we just didn't have the time. The oldest part of the house dates to 1667 and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote a book of the same name. I have never read it but it sounds intriguing.
Across the street.
Loved this place. The red was really more of a rose.
Salem Common. We thought this was where the witches were hung, but as it turns out and which I found out later, there is a place called Gallows Hill, and we didn't see that when we were there because it's not located in this part of town.
We had a lovely day together, although I had to be on the road by 1:45 to get back through Boston as quickly as possible. We exchanged some gifties in the parking garage! I gave them some Cape Coddy things for them and their 2 kids, and they gave me:
A Canada puzzle, chocolate Toonie (which I can't bring myself to eat!), stickers, a mug, a smiley rock painted by their daughter Amelia....
Moriah had asked me if there was anything specific I wanted, and I told her how much I regretted not getting an Inukshuk in all the times I visited Vancouver Island. She looked around and couldn't find one that she liked, so she & the kids selected stones from the beach at St. Martin's, New Brunswick, and made me one!!! I love it and it's WAY better than a store bought one!
And finally, the most awesome gingerale I've ever had. I believe she said it's only available in the Maritimes and it's bottled in Bruce's hometown.
A great day indeed!!
