Anyway, back to our fantastic trip. We flew into Boston arriving at 12:45 am due to delays in Houston-town. Never fails when flying out of Houston we get delayed for at least an hour on the takeoff. No big deal because I napped and then finished reading my Pride and Prejudice and Zombie book that I've been trying to get to since last Fall. When we got in to Boston, we got our car and drove directly to Salem. We stayed at the Salem Inn- actually their Peabody House- pronounced kind of funny- you say it real fast and in one syllable- not in three like we do here in Texas. The next morning we took the trolley and checked out the town, went to the city hall, and found Winter Island http://www.salemweb.com/winterisland/ where we decided to have our ceremony.
Over the next three days we toured Salem and Boston with Kris's Mom and her brother and his family. We had a wonderful time being tourists. We went to the House of Seven Gables http://www.7gables.org/, the Jonathon Corwin House also known as the Witch House http://www.salemweb.com/witchhouse/, the beautiful Friendship http://www.salemweb.com/frndship/, and had a funky Chop Suey sandwich at the boardwalk in Salem Willows http://www.salemweb.com/willows/. Now that was an interesting taste sensation! Here are a few pics:

And I found this sweet 2-legged feeding the pigeons with a bag of day old bread.
|Check out the size of that bread bag!|
And this made me laugh:
It was wonderful touring with the family but all good things must come to an end and we ferried back to Salem to get a good nights sleep.
Stay posted because there is more to come. I'll leave you with one of my favorite things I found in Salem that made me a little bit homesick for my Bentman and other four-legged's....
