The love boat Day 1 and 2

BAHAMAS | Monday, 12 Jan 2009 | Views [529] | Comments [1]

Slow driving to the port, lots of traffic.   We left the car at the airport and had to wait for a bit on the bus to take us to the ship: lots of white hair, wheel chairs and walkers (not the fast kind).   Boarding the ship didn’t take long.   I ... Read more >

Day 19: Brighton

USA | Sunday, 23 Nov 2008 | Views [387] | Comments [3]

Beth will be jealous to hear that we headed to Brighton today.  WOW.  It was fantastic.  We took the very long route there, it was probably only 40 miles away but took us several hours of leisurely driving to arrive.  We got off the path following the ... Read more >

Day 18: Dover

USA | Saturday, 22 Nov 2008 | Views [394] | Comments [6]

Started with a continental breakfast this morning, instead of the full English breakfast, then drove to the southeast coastline to visit Dover.   The only other times we had been here have been approaching by sea on the ferry from Calais, so it was ... Read more >

Day 17: Leeds

USA | Friday, 21 Nov 2008 | Views [350] | Comments [2]

Leeds Castle was fab.  Nice grounds, mean geese and warm weather (low 50s).  We spent the morning wandering around the grounds and going through the castle.  The tourists are very thinned out, only a handful of Japanese.  The afternoon was quite exciting.... Read more >

Day 16: Drive baby drive...

USA | Thursday, 20 Nov 2008 | Views [312]

Drove from Dartmoor to Kent today...took a long time!  Stopped for a quick sandwich in the car and kept going.  Our b&b was only a one nighter but it was wonderful!  Nice couple, great bed!! Dinnier was a good restaurant, I hate that I ordered fish ... Read more >

Day 15: Moor is More

USA | Wednesday, 19 Nov 2008 | Views [328]

We had a wonderful morning out on the Moors.  Did a 7 mile trek, lots of signs of past civilization and mud.  I had a small slip late in the walk, a bit of mud on my pants but survived.  The rest of the day was spent relaxing at the Inn and reading our ... Read more >

Here's the next quiz

USA | Tuesday, 18 Nov 2008 | Views [576] | Comments [21]

What's this fruit?  We've seen it twice as a garnish on desert.  It's about the size and consistency of a large cherry tomato, and tastes somewhat bland but sweet.  We saw it growing on a house in Portsmouth today so we snapped a photo.  (We don't know ... Read more >

Day 14: My Peeps

USA | Tuesday, 18 Nov 2008 | Views [329]

Today we woke up in Penzance after having walked the town and exploring it’s roads.   It wasn’t our type of town but at least we got a chance to experience it.   We left this morning, right after breakfast, and headed toward Plymouth to see where ... Read more >

Day 13: Best seen after dusk

USA | Monday, 17 Nov 2008 | Views [329]

Good start this morning off to the land of King Arthur.   It took us a bit to find our way out of the maze they call Devon (small roads, tall thick hedges).   We landed at Tintagel Castle on the coast after driving for 30 miles – 1 ½ hours drive. ... Read more >

Day 12: Walk two in the Moors

USA | Monday, 17 Nov 2008 | Views [419]

Early rise and porridge for breakfast, the perfect start to a perfect day.   Left the BB and headed into the Moors for a complete day of trekking about.   Started in Batsworthy, a small town in the middle of nowhere.   It too us about an hour to ... Read more >

Day 11: Wild Ponies!

USA | Saturday, 15 Nov 2008 | Views [357]

Early breakfast, full Monty, don't want to starve or loose my latest addition (preggers...4 months I'd guess). Got a semi-early start and drove into Dartmoor national park and got started on a nice long walk.  Drove by our B&B twice (my navigation ... Read more >

USA | Friday, 14 Nov 2008 | Views [283] | Comments [1]

Almost half way done with the trip!  We left Wales after taking another visit to see the Castle at St. Fagan's - Museum.  Wonderful!  Walked through the upstairs and downstairs.  Drove the long way back to the M4 and headed for warmer climates.  Rained ... Read more >

Day 8 and 9: Wales

USA | Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | Views [317]

Two days have gone flying by since our last update.   We hated saying goodbye to Ann and Margaret.   They were so nice, accommodating and staying with them was easy.   We arrived yesterday around noon to the Cardiff area and immediately went ... Read more >
