Quick NECA Cruise Update 05 – the rest of Bar Harbor

I’m writing this from the LaGuardia Delta Gate 29 (Terminal C) . . . our scheduled 1:10 pm flight has now been pushed back to 3:10 pm. Most annoying and an unwelcomed development given that we were scheduled to (by now) have pick … Continue reading

Quick NECA Cruise Update 04 – Boston and Some Bar Harbor

St. Kitts Redux – Part III

If posts were maps, this one and the rest that document our Caribbean cruise would be shown under the label “Terre Incognite”. Perhaps more appropriately, “Terre e Oceani Incogniti”. That’s because this and future posts about last year’s cruise do not … Continue reading
