Remembering Maine - Day 27

2008.07.03
pixel
Our first stop (after lunch and the Salem Visitors' Center) was the Salem Witch Museum.
pixel
They didn't allow photography in the museum, but I did get a shot of this poster for the French Musee de la Sorcellerie. I'm not sure if the words on the bottom are promoting an appearance by Cher, but she was in The Witches of Eastwick.
pixel
Witch icons and memorabilia are everywhere in Salem. I challenged the Witch Museum employees as to why they sell items that reinforce the witch stereotypes (the theme of the rest of their exhibit was that witches and other scapegoat groups were the targets of a combination of fear and a trigger person or event). Their answer, "They pay the bills."

Another UU church of Massachusetts - the First Universalist Church of Salem.

The Salem house used by Nathaniel Hawthorne for The House of Seven Gables.

This sign is probably equally ineffective on Massachusetts drivers with or without the "F".
pixel
Marshland is something you don't associate with New Hampshire.
pixel
Vanity plates must be cheap in New Hampshire. We saw plenty during our brief trip through about twelve miles of the state.

Kallie's first drawbridge at the New Hampshire/Maine border.

The cove at Kittery Point, ME from Fort McClary Historical Site. Note the cars in the distance...that's how we found the restaurant we were looking for in Kittery.

Fort McClary, active during several US conflicts, but rarely used in combat.

We were a little freaked out by the "fake people" in this vehicle in the restaurant parking lot.
pixel
It turns out that the vehicle commemorates the 180th anniversary of Frisbee's Market across the street.

Lighthouse on an island in Kittery Cove. I worked a bit to capture it with the light on.
pixel
The wind freshened.
pixel
We watched the storm roll across the cove.
pixel
The storm blew in quickly and picked up a canopy from the restaurant's outside seating area.
pixel
The canopy blew over a fence and landed on two cars in the parking lot - fortunately no damage.
pixel
This lighthouse stayed lit during the storm. We couldn't see the other one at all.
pixel
Almost as quickly as it came, the storm left.
pixel
I took the photos and we ate a great meal at Cap'n Simeon's Galley in Kittery Point, ME.
pixel
The rain started again as we left to return to the Boston area.
pixel
On our northward jaunt we visited Salem, MA (where the infamous Salem witch trials happened in 1692) and continued north to leave tracks in both New Hampshire and the very southern tip of Maine.
