In this post I'll just put the cool shots of Salem after dark and then I'll do a seperate post for orb shots...one of which is right in our new hotel room above my bed!
When I came back she was all excited. The front desk called and offered to upgrade us to a fancier room because it was my birthday! At first I was totally mystified but then they told me it was because I posted on the Hawthorne blog that I was there for my b-day.
So now we are in a really big room with a view right out over the front door onto Essex St. (versus a wall and some AC vents which were our view in the other room). Not only do we have two queen size bed but two BATHROOMS with TUBS in them! We had a tiny potty and shower in the other one. now we can do tandem baths and race each other! Freaky! It is soooo cool and obviously I love the Hawthorne more than ever! Oh yeah and don't worry, there's still an iHome and an even bigger TV! ;0)
you already heard all about our breakfast so I'll start after that: we went and go tickets to the historical trolley tour that takes us all over the points of interest and also functions as a shuttle. It was just ready to go when we showed up so we took the whole tour first, and you'll see a ton of pics I took from that. you can tell which ones because you can usually see some part of the trolley and/or the driver reflected in the pics but it's close enuff for me to serve as a souvenir. :0)
after we had taken the whole tour we rode the trolley down to Pickering Wharf and did all the shops down there. I got a coupla shiny witchy birthday things and had fun. then we had lunch and stopped at the "Olde Pepper Companie" chocolate store for ...umm...dessert plus about forty dollars worth of take away. they make their own chocolates. nuff said.
after a rest we are gonna do a bit more, culminating in a walking ghost tour tonite, hopefully. and home to see the kitties tomorrow! they're gonna be mad but at least I got them a bag of nip at Artemisia Botanicals. :0)
Oh, and when we were at Laurie Cabot's shop we noticed it's her birthday today! Cool.
