Yesterday was a great day. We headed out in the morning to the town of Salem, MA which is about 25 minutes from where Gretchen lives. We were lucky to find a parking spot on the street where parking was free. It was a beautiful day for a walk, and we headed down the street toward the New England Pirate Museum.
View of Salem Harbor from the street…
When we arrived at the museum, we stopped outside for a few pictures. I thought the outside of the building was very cool.
The museum was nice, a little pricey I thought ($8/person) for what the tour actually contained. There was a guide who gave a minute long blurb about maybe 10-15 famous New England pirates. Our guide is the “pirate” in the right hand picture with the blue sash. He kind of blends in with the rest of the scene!
After the museum was the best part of the day. We walked around Salem checking out the restaurants, and found a nice looking one that wasn’t very busy, and had a great outdoor eating area.
Then on the walk back to the car, we checked out Salem Harbor, and the little lighthouse that was at the end of the pier.
It was a great way to spend Labor Day. And. even better, I still have another day off before I have to go back to work!
