The port of Portland, U.K., it turns out, is a peninsula of commerical activity, 9 miles from Portland, and much further than that from Weymouth, the closest city of importance. Many of our passengers are planning on visiting Stonehenge, a 2 hour drive each way, which did not seem attractive on a blustery day with a high temperature of 48. The shuttle to Portland had a lineup of passengers with a 45 minute wait in the cold and wind. NOT TODAY!!
Tomorrow we will be in Le Havre, France, with a planned tour to Hanfleur and Rouen. The cool temperature we can handle, ………….the wind, not so much!!
The ship must be taking on water. Our cabin mate tonight washed onto the bed from somewhere onboard.
