Yeah. So that happened.
We had a blast! On Friday we had lovely weather so we walked around Salem and took in some of the historic sites, including the Witch Trials Memorial and the Old Burying Point Cemetery. This may sound morbid, but I found them very inspirational.
This headstone from 1688 is for a young man who "had seen but Nineteen Winters in the World." Kind of a sad and haunting way to put it. It was also apparently in fashion to have those creepy angel skeletons on your headstones in the 17th century because most stones had them.
We stayed in a "haunted" hotel but none of us had any uninvited visitors. It's actually a historic home built in 1834 that was restored and turned into a hotel. Very cool.
My non-haunted room.
Sonia and Maurissa were lovely company and we shared some great talks over meals. And, yeah, it was a conference, so we attended many panels. (I didn't take pictures of those so that's why this is only a "kind of" recap.) And when I got the crazy idea that we should go into a vintage photo shop and dress up in witch costumes, they were great sports about it. We were laughing so hard, you probably heard us...wherever you are.
But I'm back now. All good things...
...must come to an end.
