We were up and ready to go by 7:15 am, as we had to take the subway to catch train to Salem.
We found out that the shuttle driver was not available as he had over slept. We needed to be at the T at a certain time. The hotel clerk told us we could walk to subway, as it was only 5 minutes from hotel. We had no choice as we needed to get the Early T as it takes about 1 1/2 hours from Boston to Salem, and wanted to get off to a early start.
We proceeded to walk and it turned out to be 30 minutes of walking in some areas not very good, and also had to walk over a bridge across the freeway. What a experience that was for us. We were very upset as the subway he told us to take turned out to be the wrong one also. We had to take the subway back to the South T as he had us going North.
The subway is very crowded, and you hang on for your life when they make turns. But after a few times on the subway you kinda get the hang of it.
Finally got to Salem Massachusetts. What a very quaint town. We saw the Salem Witch museum. The Salem Witch Museum brings you there, back to Salem 1692. Visitors are given a dramatic history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures, lighting and a narration - an overview of the Witch Trials of 1692. Saw some other places and also looked at allot of shops. The Salem Witch Trials Archives
It started pouring down rain in the mid afternoon. Even tho I had my umbrella and a coat on I still got soaking wet. We decided to get a bite to eat, so we went into a cute restaurant called"Reds Restaurant" I had the best turkey sandwich. I always like to take stuffing, cranberry sauce and turkey with a bit of mayo. I always thought that I was the only one who made a turkey sandwich like that, but found out , that is how they make them there.
This was the typical of the 17Th century New England clothing.
Since the weather was so bad, we decided to leave as we could no longer enjoy ourselves with being wet and cold. I wish the weather was better as I would have loved to stay longer. We took the T back to Boston, and then the subway. Stopped at Trader Joe's for a few things to take back to hotel, as we were to tired and wet to want to go back out to eat.
