  1. Great Post Dippy, finally one place that I visited from your travels .It is fascinating to read about the details and the history , I recall some of the Moravian part from the field trip this was like 4 years ago.Most of our time was spent in the old museum and loved seeing the culture and dressings of the people from those days.The pumpkin muffin was really good .Glad to see you had a great time .Now hope to read about the Great Smokies in your post as you mention about it..that’s been on our list of places to visit for the longest time.

    1. Well pack your bags already for the Smokies! πŸ™‚ I shall bring up the post soon. I have been itching to, which is why I needed to wrap this up first.

      As you can see, we missed out on the museum — and that I hope to make right soon. Yet how we both loved the little time we spent in Salem. It was so atmospheric that I could feel an old movie play out in my mind’s eye.
      Dreaming of the pumpkin muffin. xx

      2. My sister-in-law lived for a while in Raleigh. So I have heard of it so many times. I am sorry to hear about Florence causing havoc at your end, Nisha. I have been tracking its effect through the news and it is terrible. Let us hope Florence weakens and vanishes.
        To your pretty part of the country recovering soon. xx

      Thank you Captainji. I cannot tell you how good it feels. The key word would be liberating.

    1. Meet Connor the cat. He loves nuzzles with strangers. I clearly needed to have a word with his momma.
      That pie…I think I see why people live in the south. Have a great weekend! xx

  2. Beautiful photos! Deserted streets, old buildings surrounded by shady trees, sleepy cat & mysteriously smiling woman, all these gave me the thrill of watching a Manoj Night Shyamalan’s movie. πŸ™‚

      1. The moment I read the words “The Salem of the witch trials”, I started seeing those pictures in a different perspective. Besides I watched one of his movies in the night before reading this post.
        But now after reading this post once again I find Salem really a beautiful & peaceful place. πŸ™‚

      So you could relate to my post on Salem then. It is a gem. For us, unexpected. Cheers!

      Well how is it going? Sorry for confusing you, doll. This is actually not the Salem of the witch trials :-/ I had gone expecting it and found another Salem altogether. A more peaceful one. And thanks. Hope you are having a good week. xx

      1. It does indeed! And oh .. well that is actually far better because I can now, guilt free, think this place looks wonderful! I was thinking it was a tiny bit morbid for them to go to such effort to keep it old fashioned to preserve the atmosphere of the burnings… Hope you’re having a good week too!xx
