Once back at the cottage, we found the others had left to get coffee at the Back Door ...
... was ashore by about 9:15. I

the time visiting a person I've chatted with on Cruise Critic. Shiela
runs a very nice B&B (Centre Street Inn). We chatted for about an hour
over a cup of coffee before I left to visit the Whaling Museum. There
were displays of ships, the life of whalers, the processing of whale products, some skeletal remains, and a rooftop observation ...
