Massachusetts #3

As the Halloween season approached, the perfect place to visit was Salem – home of the witch trials. ¬†While we didn’t see any witches, warlocks, or goblins there were plenty of seasonal decorations along with the beauty of another New England town. ¬†Just a few photos from Salem here:

We couldn’t resist a visit to the local confectioner – everything looked and tasted great (but we limited ourselves to just a few small items)

While I had a sign for this restaurant, I thought the decals on the side of this restored Ford pickup were more interesting.
