That is Yorkshire which roughly translates into….”You are not going to believe what you are about to read!!!”
Had a great sleep and it was a driving morning through foggy single lane roads but I did have a live soccer game broadcasted from England on the radio to pass the time.
I arrived at Ellsworth around noon and went into the parking lot of MacD’s and checked my e mails and still not a contact from the Travel agent from Halifax..that is three days and I have e mailed twice and called and left messages twice and not even the decency of a reply!!!!
So I found a Travel Agency in this town and sat down with Linda and told her of my problem and she searched her computer for a few minutes and said she was very sorry but she could not match the other quote……but she said this with a smile on her face…..
so she said BUT I can get it for you for $510 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After I picked myself of the floor I confirmed that this fare is all taxes and single supplement included, all port taxes no extras!!!!
I do have to share my cabin with a 51 one year old blonde from California!!!! Just KIDDING!!!
I am still in a little bit of a shock finding this cruise 7 days to Bermuda for such a low price!!!!!
So I immediately booked it and Linda told me she had to print off all the documents for me and it would take an hour or so but she offered to come into the office tomorrow on her day off to give me the copies so I thanked her so much and arranged to see her at noon tomorrow!!!
I left a pretty happy camper!!!
Onto Bar Harbour where I walked around the town!!
Then it was off to
There was a 27 mile loop road but they had height restrictions and I was not sure if Ramona would fit so rather than take a chance and even though it was a bit foggy and damp I got Bonita ready!!
This one I think I could have made!!
The road to Cadillac Mountain
was a bit steep, and narrow and foggy so decided to leave Bonita and hitch a ride up the mountain…the first vehicle stopped and away I went with this nice family!!
The top was almost too foggy to see anything
the same family gave me a ride back down again.
My next stop was
to snap these beautiful Fall colours!!
Then on to
This was a nasty little trek with slippery rocks and even the hand and foot rails were slippery!!!
I climbed to about a 100 feet of the summit and the rails were getting really slippery and I decided as much as I wanted to finish …to turn around and be safe…after all I do have a cruise to go on!!!!!
I was absolutely soaked when I got back
This rates and not the longest or highest climbs but one of the most difficult!!!
This tunnel I think would have caused me problems!!
Hey CROFT are you having flashbacks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I arrived back at Ramona just before dark…..had a great long hot shower a good meal and now going back to Ellsworth to MacD’s to post this and then on a couple of blocks to Wal-Mart for the night I already have another Red Box movie to watch.
Please you can expect to hear many comments about the cruise for the next five days you have been warned!!!!
Blessings to all!!!
