In early November last year, my son and I went on a field trip to Boston. In the middle of a nor'easter. Rain, 70 mph wind, and even some snow, which is exciting stuff for Florida kids.
One of our activities was to take a walking ghost tour of Salem one cold, rainy night. These are some scenes from that night. Did we see ghosts? Some parents swore there were orbs showing up in their photographs. I think it was more light reflections from the street lights, but it was fun to play along.
I didn't take notes, but I remember our guide telling us that there are a gazillion people that descend upon Salem for Halloween. Hotels book up years in advance. I actually preferred the cold, wet, haunted desolation of the place when we visited...great atmosphere.
