Exploring Salem Massachusetts

Returning to Mass from NH’s beautiful North Country.

After conferring with our friends Fred and Mary, we ended up in Salem, Massachusetts, at the Waterfront Hotel & Suites.  Not only did we spend the evening in Salem, Hui-chen and I explored the city on the following day, so you won’t want to miss the next article in this series.

The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites is located in the historic wharf area of Salem.  We enjoyed our stay at the Waterfront Hotel & Suites.  The room was quiet and very nicely appointed.

I do not know the story of this ship residing in Salem harbor, but it sure looked fantastic.  I hope one of our readers can enlighten us.  We saw this on our way to dinner at the famous Victoria Station restaurant.

I love being around boats.  It reminds me of my youth in Florida.

Look at all those sail boats!

Such a beautiful evening for being on the water!

This is the shuttle boat pilot, as we head out to the mooring.

Fred is preparing to board his boat (the name has been obscured to protect their privacy).  The ocean was nice and calm that evening.

The shuttle boat pilot gives us a wave as he takes off.

Many people who own boats will spend a quiet evening at the mooring without even taking the boat out.  It’s very relaxing to hear the sounds of the ocean, and breathe the clean fresh air.  Just being on the water is several degrees cooler and this is a great way to escape the heat of the city.  We spent several hours catching up with Fred and Mary, whom I haven’t seen in such a long time.  It was great swapping funny stories of past exploits and travels, etc.

This is our final shot for this installment, of the sun setting behind Salem, Massachusetts.  The next day Hui-chen and I set out to explore this very interesting city with a strange past.
