Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started.

So, as the layout of the ACTUAL house is different to the house ...
... Lobster roll's for lunch and laid on the beach for the afternoon. We near enough had the place to ourselves as the high tourist season has finished.
From there we headed to our Hotel, the fireside inn. In the morning Andrew, Becci and Brian all had a swim in the pool. Being September there was no one else stupid enough to go swimming.
We then drove to Fort William Park, where we visited Portland Head ...
