A Mystery Road Trip

Norwich Free Academy from the sideview mirrorWith Amanda's friend Darci visiting from New Jersey for the holiday weekend (and yes, she brought New Moon with her - woohoo!) it seemed like a good time to take a day off from work, let Amanda put NFA in the rearview mirror (or the sideview mirror in this case), and take off on a road trip for the day.

I'd tell you where we're going but I thought I'd give you the chance to guess and see if anyone gets it right or how close you might come. If you're one of the few people that I told who actually read this blog then you can't play along as that just wouldn't be fair but feel free to leave a hint or two if you'd like! I'm pretty sure I didn't tell that many people, though, as I wasn't sure until just the other day where we were going myself.

Here are some clues and then we are outta here and off on an adventure or two ... it's north of Connecticut, it's seeped in history, and it should be a frighteningly good time!

Bye Norwich! Hello ... ???

  9. North of Connecticut and scary, huh? Sure does sound like Salem, Mass. Definitely, that place is sure steeped in history.

    well I am late on the bandwagon, but my vote is Salem MA. Historic and scary, both the idea of witches and the mob mentality that killed innocents.

  15. Apparently I'm slow with the draw, cause that was my guess, Salem!! Although Worcester could also past for "north of CT, historical, and scarey" too! LOL

  16. HA! I agree with Erik about Worcester... however I KNOW where you went so I'll just keep my mouth shut!
