October Traveling

Last year Chippy's Ice Cream Parlor was open during October.  This year, because of schools changing to a balanced calendar instead of the traditional calendar, Chippy's closed early.  Teddy and I have decided to take our fall break to explore places we've never been, starting with New England.

Ready Teddy?

First things first, we have our own Vietnam vet navigating for us.  Always best to consult subject matter experts.

After a self guided tour of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, the Freedom Trail and several shops along the way, we tried our luck in Salem.

Sweet Witches in Salem

Perfect fall weather graced our travel all week.  We learned about the Salem witch trials in the Witch museum, took the trolley tour all over town, and ate at a local eatery on the main thoroughfare through town.  Salem was the highlight of the trip for me, as it was filled with history, and art.  I have a new appreciation for Wiccans, although I am not a member.  Who could disagree with their philosophy of whatever you do comes back to you three times, and appreciation of nature?

Precious gratefullness to my dad for his company and land navigational skills.
