Boston and New England Cruise - 13 days from October 3rd to 15/2016.....


On Sunday, the Rotterdam docked at Bar Harbor, Maine - this was a tender stop.

We had an early breakfast on the Lido deck and then took Holland America’s shore excursion to the Acadia National Park ($49.95) for 2 ½ hours, leaving at 8 a.m.  
 
The Park was interesting due to the fall colours, but I was disappointed with the picture taking – I do not like to take pictures through a bus window because of the glare.  The Tour Guide would point out interesting spots, but the bus did not stop, and you would only see them coming and going. 


We did have a 20 minute stop at a Gift Store, and I was able to get some nice pictures there. 

Then back at Bar Harbor, we went to The Independent Coffee Shop – quite busy - to use the wi-fi and have lunch - I had sausage, egg and cheese on a bagel and coffee - very good ($8).  Then a walk around Bar Harbor looking at the stores and tourist attractions, and took the tender back.

The day was rainy, so we were looking forward to getting back to the Ship and going for dinner.  I had escargot for the appetizer, baked white fish and chocolate cake.  Another couple at the table lived right around Boston, and were very interested in our time there. 

 

The pool had to be covered over - the Ship sailed at 3 p.m. to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
