It’s time for me to chime in again with a few thoughts on the food and the sightseeing.
Reading the post about our day with Ayersian made me sad, because I would gladly hang out with both of them far more often than geography will allow. Thanks again, both of you!
It also made me sad because there is no Rancatore’s in Pittsburgh. I might have to beg for ice cream shipped in dry ice for my birthday…and my birthday is in December, so the ice cream would likely stay cold between New England and here. Not sure if I’d want Rancatore’s, Herrell’s or Dr. Mike’s…they were all SO incredibly good. I’m getting hungry typing this!
I also am now craving some of Hallie’s amazing turtles…the apricot and cherry version is my personal favorite. Talking with Hallie was a lot of fun too!
As the proud holder of a BA in English, I really enjoyed visiting the House of Seven Gables. It was really pretty neat, even if the house didn’t actually look like that in its prime (See my wonderful husband’s explanation). I was sorry to have missed the campy witch museums, but they simply provide us with another reason to return to the area. There also is great shopping in Salem…I didn’t do enough of that, either 🙂
