Boston via Salem.......

We headed now to Massachusetts and Boston, but thought a trip to Salem would be interesting.
Salem is where the Witch Trials took place in 1692, where 19 men and women were hanged
having been convicted for witchcraft. The whole town was full of shops selling all things to do with the craft and even potion shops. Here is one of the nicer shops selling what they call

"Primitive Art".

Imagine a dark and rainy day in a spooky town. We felt quite uneasy here and decided to head on down to Boston......

A little luxury was in order so we checked into a very plush hotel The Westin, at the seaport, They boys were impressed with our room on the 13th floor.

The Lobby

A must while here is a trip to Quincy Market,look it is raining again .

This building is full of take away food shops selling foods from all around the world. It was really good and very good value, DS2 said that this was delicious.......

DH and I enjoyed a New England Fish Chowder soup and sourdough bread, yummy......

Found a shop just next to the market selling nothing but Crocs, I didn't realise that they came in as many styles, mind blowing. DH knows how much I like them so he bought me these sandals, only stipulation , he choose the colour. Not bad for a bloke!! A trip on the Codzilla, a massive speedboat giving the passengers a real exciting ride in the Boston Bay. This is boys before the trip, they got totally drenched on the ride.

Last evening in Boston

A lovely meal in a fish restaurant at the seaport, it was called "No Name Restaurant".
