Greetings From the Roof of the Hawthorne Hotel!

This weekend finds Claire and I in one of my very favorite places ever as it's the weekend of the big Halloween Ball at the Hawthorne Hotel where Claire will be doing her best Simon Cowell impression and even though there's a potentially major storm bearing down on us in the form of Hurricane (or Tropical Storm if you prefer) Sandy, Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day on the North Shore as evidenced by the following photos that were taken from the roof of the hotel.

View to the west and downtown Salem
View to the south, Hawthorne Boulevard
Essex Street and the Peabody Essex Museum 
View to the east, the Custom House and Salem Harbor
View north with Salem Common on the right
The Salem Witch Museum and the Roger Conant Statue
I'm sure that Claire enjoyed the view of Salem that most visitors to the city will never ever get that was made possible by my friend Juli - hope you enjoyed it too!


  1. Love it all, but I could never get sick of that view of Salem Harbor!

  2. Love the photos of Salem, especially the harbour!

  3. Quintessential New England town. Love it!

  4. I'm on one of those boats out on the water. That's the very best place to be.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  5. Absolutely wonderful photographs, particularly like the one of the witch museum. Look forward to the big party. Stay safe as witch Sandy wends her way north.

  6. Gorgeous day. I hope Sandy doesn't ruin your week.

  7. Sweet! Peabody? Reminded me Murder she Wrote and Cabot Cove :)
    Hunker down and stay safe, girls!
    Hugs from Ohio,


Thanks for visiting!
