Sentimental Journey to Salem
Windblown leaves skim over the lawn. Pine boughs scratch the sky. Squirrels scamper while hoarding food for the winter. The teakettle whistles and reminds me I’ll soon enjoy a steaming mug of cocoa. With fall in full swing, my thoughts trend toward Thanksgiving. Despite real life and its penchant for delivering bad news and devastations, I’ve many things for which I give thanks. My awesome family. Fantastic friends. Readers of the romance stories I delight in creating. Good health. Waking up each morning and discovering new passions and adventures.

And speaking of adventures, the places to which I’ve traveled are also among those things for which I give thanks. As another golden leaf is tossed into the breeze by the maple tree in my front yard, fond memories of my trips to New England, and especially Salem, swirl in my mind. Today I’ll enjoy sharing some digital snapshots of Salem. Join me on this photographic journey to a magical city where history and many exciting fall events abound.




















As you and yours observe Thanksgiving in the coming days, remember this: Live each day to the fullest; dismiss the self-doubt demons; love your friends and family like never before; dare to dream and make those dreams become reality!

Wishing you many happy reading moments,

  1. Shawna, my sister lives in Boston, so I've been to Salem a few times. Last time I was there was a year ago last spring. We were in Salem on Easter Sunday, so not everything was open. I think we also saw the House of the Seven Gables on that trip and then ate up north at a lobster restuarant. Great pictures.

    Hi, Carol!

    Thanks for sharing your trip to Boston and Salem. The House of Seven Gables is lovely. Whenever history and unique architecture are involved, I'm a rapt audience :)

    Happy weekend wishes,

    Shawna
