Scituate Light - Day 129

To nice of a day to stay home. George had no interest in doing anything so I roamed the south shore. I love doing this. I wanted a photo of the First Parish Church in Cohasset but they haven't fixed the repairs yet. Ladders everywhere so I used the shore road to Scituate. I met a couple ladies at Scituate Light and had a nice conversation.

St. George - Day 109

Arrived at St. George, Bermuda. Spent the morning at St. Catherine's beach, water was perfect, and the afternoon looking through the shops in St. George. Temperature in the low 80's. Just perfect. The Veendam is to large to dock downtown so they have a ferry to get us from the ship to town. Tomorrow the ship moves to Front street in Hamilton for three days.
