Bored with witches...

We took the commuter train into Salem today. We were both kinda bummed out by Salem. It seemed to be pretty hyped up on every website that we checked. It was actually a little boring, and the WAY over-played the whole witch thing. It was gorgeous day though, and the clouds were beautiful! We toured a really old house that is pretty much the only building left in Salem that has any connections to the witch trials. After that we walked up the pier a little bit in the harbor. We also took a tour of "The House of the Seven Gables." This is supposedly the house that Nathaniel Hawthorne's book is based off of. We also toured the little house that Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in.

We took the train back into Boston and I took a nap AGAIN! This has kind of become my afternoon tradition :) After my nap we walked into Little Italy to eat dinner. Layton read about this place online called Giacoma's. You usually have to wait in a really long line since they don't take reservations and it's a really tiny place. We decided to wait it out tonight. It was definitely worth it!! It was like the place we ate at last week with lots of Italian "Godfather" type people yelling and stuff!! It was so fun though. We laughed a lot and had a great dinner.

I'm ready for our last official day here of exploring this great and historical city!

Today's total mileage: 5 miles
Today's blessing: Enjoying yet another fabulous evening with Layton, laughing the night away!
