Truth be told, I'm unclear on where we're leaving from, although I do know Cape Cod is the first stop. I'm also unclear where we're headed, although I know for sure we're stopping in NC and then headed for "Florida". Fun!

I am not a witch!
Salem is really very awesome. I would love to be able to stay for a while longer and tour all the museums and historical sites. It gets a bit chilly at night, (I need to remember to put a blanket on my bunk, and today it's a bit chilly in the shade (it's breezy). Fortunately, these things happen in order to remind me that I am not cut out to live in the arctic north. ;)
I'm working on my accent. I know that people drive cahs. There are lots of cahs around heeyeah. Some of the accents are just thick!
I have some pics - more on my Facebook page,but less commentary. ;)
I thought it was so cool how close to the original this pic is. I will see if I can go back and get a better pic of the original (pic) - Murphy the wonder dog was tugging pretty hard, I was trying to snap before my arm jerked, LOL
Speaking of Murphy..
I knew about the witches, didn't know about the pirates!
Witchcraft is, of course, a huge tourist attraction. However, it appears that people who truly believe in witchcraft have settled here. Along the same lines, I have seen several lesbian couples - I wonder if it's the witchcraft thing or if the city's culture naturally allows people to be more accepting of people that are different. Haven't really seen very many African-Americans or Asian people, so perhaps the acceptance thing is just wishful thinking on my part.
