October 28, 2009 – Day 2

Salem Rainy Window

Well, dear ones, day 2 here in Salem was perfect! It rained and stormed and the wind howled all day and all night. The wind whistled around this old hotel making it the perfect setting for a spooky celebration like Halloween! I was so thrilled! I could not have asked for a better place to be on a stormy day!

Bridget Witch Memorial

I did finally decide to brave the storm and go outside and walk the streets of Salem. It was so cold and the wind kept turning my umbrella inside out but I had a purpose in mind. I took along my video camera and I thought what better day than this stormy, dark day to go to the oldest cemetery in Salem and to the Witches Memorial. Unfortunately with all the water and leaves, it was virtually impossible to see all the names at the memorial but nevertheless I did film there. The Old Burying Point Cemetery sits right next to the Witches Memorial but I was unable to enter because of water standing at the entrance. Anyway, I did go on and continued to video as I walked around the streets. Salem is a lovely city and it has so much atmosphere! Of course, I took many photos of Halloween decorations!

When I finally returned to my hotel I was very wet, cold and hungry. My room was quite inviting! I decided to view the videos I just took and I am NOT good at shooting video! The videos were good as far as the information I was sharing but the quality! It was the Blair Witch all over again. These videos sucked and I made myself sick watching them! And it didn’t help that someone yelled something “loud” as they passed by me. Scared the crap out of me … and I dropped my umbrella! Jason said we can edit the bad parts out but I don’t think so. If we do come up with something good, I’ll be posting it so stay spooky-tuned!

Room Bound on a Rainy Day

So even now as I sit here and look out the window, it is blowing so hard out there that I can see that the rain is horizontal. The wind chill is 47 degrees. Not a good day for sightseeing! I guess I’ll just ride this out tucked in right here in my warm and cozy room at the Hawthorne Hotel. There are a couple of horror/monster movie marathons on TV so I’m in my element! Will speak tomorrow and Trick or Treat!

Luvs,

Janet
