On my final day of fun I took the early train to Salem to learn the history of the witch trials from 1692. It’s amazing what that persecution has switched into today… So many other groups.

Either way, it was a quick visit and nice to walk around the town. They are all ready for Halloween!

My week of recruiting has left me with two days in the middle of week to myself. While I love my family and friends, I am so excited to do what I want!!

I flew in early today and was able to check into my hotel and settle in. I had a late breakfast and then headed out.

I love navigating public transit and do it pretty well, I might say. I ended up at the Sam Adams Brewery for a free tour and tasting. Yum! While there, they told us about a bar we can go to, buy a beer and get a free glass. Otherwise a glass is $8.50! So yes, I walked the mile to get there.

After that, I found my way to the USS Constitution. It was closing so I ran through it snapping as many photos as I could. Then I had a chance to slow down and enjoy the museum and gift shop (duh).

Tonight, I came back to the hotel and relaxed before finding a restaurant. I ordered myself an amazing bottle of wine knowing that I can save it for the next couple of nights. And I worked on my 15 year vision… An exercise for work.
