entering the river in Portland Maine, we are not sure what this is but looks like a fort, that protected the harbour in earlier days …
the main part of Portland … we are heading to a marina on South Portland
marina is on the left before the bridge
we were told not to come in at low tide, boats were running aground
2 hours and 8.8 km
we are on the flight path to the airport … the last plane we heard was around 11pm and then they started again before 6am
I had made an appointment at the Apple Store, at Maine Mall, to have my computer looked at and fixed .. it has been failing to open 2 times in the last month, and a cable had detached its self … also my SD card insert is not working .. but we bypass this one using a cable from the camera to computer … we hopped on a bus for a 45 min ride to the mall , 75 cents each, while waiting for our appt. we visited AT &T and inquired on a SIM card for the iPad and a plan … well guess what the SIM card is free and you go month to month, we chose the $30/month plan that gives us lots of data … back at the Apple store my computer was opened and examined and tested, the plug in problem is okay. and the SD inserter will cost $300 to $500 to fix … I will use the cord from now on … NO Charge from Apple and we were back out the door … happy as happy could be ...
on the bus we met this gentleman, Harold .. we got to talking and he was interested in our sailing adventure … maybe thought we were a bit crazy too …. we met again on the bus on the way back to the boat … we mentioned that we were getting a few groceries and Harold offered to give us a ride in his car …. well since we have a car to carry our groceries we stocked up …
and to boot , we get to ride in this 1968 Delta 88, Olsmobile … omg this car is hugh inside ..
Harold joined us for drinks on the boat, then we all called it a good night …. thank you Harold !!!
