Shutdown in Salem

Since it was kind of grey and wet, we decided to take a ride to Salem which has been on our list of inclement weather activities.  Strike One: the Peabody Essex Museum was closed—-and I think we’ve made that mistake once already…….

Off we go to the Salem Maritime National Historic Site.  What’s that you say?  Government shutdown???  Parks open but no staff or amenities???  Strike Two although just wandering around reading the signs was pretty interesting by itself.

Oh well, let’s look at the map and decide what next.  The New England Pirate Museum sounds interesting and it’s right here.  Oh…….Strike Three “Closed for the season”… would think with the federal government shutdown, those pirates would need someplace to go.


It was a very quiet Monday in Salem and I found myself really wishing I had a drone…..


I’m thinking the FAA would probably come right to life if I’d tested this NO DRONE ZONE out.
