I had pre-purchased my ticket last night and so I go directly to the check-in line. Then I line up in the line that gets put on the ferry first. It's awesome being on a motorbike as you are always the first one on the ship
I'm the first passenger in the lounge and grab a seat by the back window of the ferry. The rising sun is shining brightly in my face. Awesome! I notice a 3rd motorcycle coming up the ramp. It's "my" yellow R1200GS bike, the one I was "going" to buy. I chat with this couple later as we're getting ready to disembark. So I'm sitting by myself at the back of the ferry when I see a large group of girls walking towards the ferry (foot passengers). There are 20, or so, early-teens that come on board and sit right in the area I'm in. They're all girl guides on an outing to Wales. A few minutes later the chaperones come on. About 8, early twenties, young women. They were in the 2 booths next to me. They were all quite loud and I was trying to read. I could have moved but I didn't. I put my i-Pod on and read a while. Then just enjoyed the camaraderie. The Guides were about Alexis age and the chaperones, Katrine's and Rhéline's. It was a reminder to me of them and how they can be with their friends.
Once off the ferry I took the shortest route up and through more beautiful countryside
The B&B I'm looking for has very cryptic directions. I'm still about 5 miles from it and I'm already on a very narrow and winding road with trees encasing the roadway. I think I'm heading the right way but have made a wrong turn. Re-read the directions and realize that I had turned left instead of right. Off towards the hamlet of Hill now. I'm suppose to turn right, right after the church. I think I see what I think is the church and turn. Then turn into a farm. There are some people outside. I ask them if this is a B&B and they say no. I tell them who I'm looking for. They say it's just up the road.
(The paragraph that was here was removed at the request of the family at the B&B.)
I chat a while longer with the lady of the Manor and then she offers me a tour of the "homestead", or whatever the English word is
This house is a museum (of sorts) with real people living in it. It's awesome how the Universe finds these places for me.
Think It! Feel It! Live It!
