A shore excursion to Salem

    The name Salem has been synonymous with witches and witchcraft since 1692 when a puritanical mania spread through what was in those days a harsh Puritan coastal community.

    Today, Salem is a colourful coastal city, located at the mouth of the Naumkeag River, some 25 miles north of Boston.

    My wife and I visited Salem on a good value ship’s excursion from the Queen Mary 2 during her 2015 call into Boston.

    And it's not just the witches that prove popular in Salem. There is a great seafaring tradition and maritime history to the place...

    Along with some excellent person architecture...

    Of course no visit to Salem will be complete without a visit to the Witches Museum and entrance to watch the show...
