How Many Times Have You Been There?

One of my absolute favorite places to visit in Massachusetts is The House of the Seven Gables in Salem. And, I fully admit I’ve paid to tour the house on more than one occasion. Actually, when I met up with a friend a couple of weekends ago, the Better Half texted asking about my plans. I gleefully responded, “House of 7 Gables!”

The reply was quick: “I made the right choice in staying home.”

True, it was pouring rain, but I knew she meant she couldn’t possibly tour the house again. Me, I can do it all the time. In fact, I haven’t broken the news yet, but I purchased a membership. Maybe she won’t notice the charge on the credit card.

Anyhoo, here are some photos of the grounds. It might be the history lover inside me, but I can’t seem to bring myself to take photos inside museums or historical places.

I’m already planning my next visit!

    It is gorgeous TB and I don’t blame you for getting a membership. If I am ever in Massachusetts again, I will not miss that tour.
