The Witches to Whales Tour of Massachusetts

We ate plenty of the best seafood ever and (among countless other oddities) explored a blue whale skeleton that is still leaking rich oil and I got drunk on wine in Salem, turned into a werewolf and went howling through the streets at midnight. Pretty great trip – I am sure it will take me years to reconcile all I have seen…
