"Old Derby Wharf, Salem"
by Philip Little - Peabody Essex Museum
"Reds" in Salem. One of the best restaurants around and so cheap!
The building used to be the London Coffee House in the 1700's.
Deborah Butterfield sculpture in the Peabody Essex Museum.
"After the Storm" by Frank Benson at the PEM.
This painting really caught my eye.
"After Renoir" by Devorah Sperber.
This piece of art was made up of hundreds of spools of thread.
When viewed through the glass sphere you could see the Renoir painting!
A Salem kitty. Perhaps a witch's familiar?
Loved all the witchy shops.
Next day we went whale watching with Capt. John Boats out of Plymouth, MA.
We sailed past the Duxbury "Bug Light".
Around The Gurnet.
When we reached the Stellwagen Bank we started seeing whales.
And an amazing tall ship I would have loved to be on!
The humpbacks came so close to the boats.
I was so excited, I was afraid I was going to drop my camera.
The researcher on board said we had 20 - 25 whales in the vicinity!

A baby whale waves good bye.
Back in Plymouth we checked out the Mayflower II.
And the old cemetery.
