more touristy stuff
it's friday..and we need to get to the show...
set up day...
spent the morning doing the walking tour of salem
great old houses .. they've been there for EVER !
the houses all have these little plaques telling you who they were built for...so cool
and we couldnt resist a little trash pickin ' haha..
but gees...look at those adorable corbals they were just tossing out...
yeah...we picked them !
on to the 'house of 7 gables'
i took lots of water and garden pics, but apparently didnt take any of the house ...haha
we did do the tour though..interesting..
no meaning ...i just like wording on signs..
on the road again........
gotta love that in the gps.... all water !!
always on the lookout for antique ~ junk shops
we stopped for lunch in essex........and regretted that we were running out of time.
if you are antiquing ..this IS the place to go..
but alas, we had to get set up for the show
(that was our reason for the trip after all)
we decided to choose just one ...
and this was it !
(and excellent choice !)
this place is LOADED with goodies
look at the detail of that old grate !
that's it for day 3.....
we sure pack it in dont we....??
