Salem was Spooktacular!

Our weekend in Salem was so much fun! I am now totally feeling in the Halloween mood! What a great way to kick off the holiday! :) We stayed at the lovely Salem Waterfront Hotel. I usually stay at The Hawthorne Hotel, so I was a bit skeptical about staying at a new place, but it was excellent! I would definitely book there again. Essex Street was super fun and crazy as it was the weekend before Halloween. Got to tour the House of Seven Gables again and brush up on my Hawthorne history. The one thing my daughter wanted more than anything was to meet Laurie Cabot, and it seems that it was meant to be! Our last day there, we had gone into her shop again, and she was just finished with a reading and opened her office door! My daughter was thrilled and Laurie was nice enough to say hi and have a conversation with her. A lovely person indeed!
