We arrived in Boston two hours late because of a malfunctioning engine (which did get repaired before we docked). We were going to tour Fenway park, but wouldn't have made it in time for the last tour. Bummer! It was a very windy day, though. We just walked around the port instead.
Here's the first lighthouse we visited in Portland, Maine, called the Bug.
No sand on these beaches!
This was the second lighthouse we visited in Portland. This is a picture of my hubby! Walking along those rocks was not easy. Some of the gaps were rather large. But I made it to the end.
Here's a view from the lighthouse. It was quite a trek!
This was the third lighthouse we visited in Portland. Got hubby to take my picture with my camera.

Here's a picture of our room. The balcony rooms are way bigger than the inside cabins. It's even got a couch!
It has a bigger desk area, too. Yeah, we take lots of stuff with us!
This was taken in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is the guard to the Citadel (I believe).
This here is Peggy's Cove. Those rocks are something, aren't they?
Me, at the lighthouse in Peggy's Cove.
This handsome fella played the bagpipes and you could hear him from all over.
On the day we were to arrive at Saint John, New Brunswick, the crew put out the towel creatures around the pool area.
Cool alligator. Or is that a crocodile?
This is the reversing falls in Saint John. You see... the Saint John River (in the distance) flows into the Bay of Fundy. When the tide is low, the river flows into the bay. When the tide is high, the bay will flow back into the river (because the tide in the bay fluctuates way more than the river does--something like a 30" difference). This was taken at low tide, but not at the lowest. During the lowest, I was told these rapids are a lot rougher.
Covered bridge in New Brunswick. Was told that whoever owned the land closest to the covered bridges were responsible for shoveling snow INSIDE the bridge so the sleighs could travel through them.
Bay of Fundy. Those are caves in the distance. During low tide, you can walk to them (and inside them) and not get wet (shows you how much the tide fluctuates here, huh?). The tide was rising when we got there and we couldn't go and visit.
Here's a shot of the reversing falls with the bay flowing back into the river. It was too calm to really see any difference, though. Again, we were a little late. Ah, what can you do? It was a tour.
Our last night on the ship and the moon rose. I thought it was pretty and wasn't sure how well the picture would come out. Not too shabby! You can even see some stars (or maybe they're planets--I can't tell from here).
Overall, we had a great time. I would have liked to have seen some fall colors, but it was warm up there (near 80 on some days). Couldn't have asked for better weather, though.
