The food at The Dolphin Striker (Dolphin Strikers were used back in the schooner era to protect the bowsprits from damage by the playful dolphins as they jumped high alongside the ships while under sail) was classed as Refined New England cuisine. The proprietor Peter DiZoglio had been serving the locals for many a year in his harbourside restaurant, and below the restaurant in the cellar (also now his quirky bar) is a spring-fed well which was uncovered during excavations in 1974 annd of which local historians verified as the Spring Hill Well, circa 1761.After dinner and a stroll around the old township, we head back to our hotel for a well earned rest. As luck would have it (and by reading the map/instructions upside down) we head south on Highway 95. That's funny!, methinks as the highway exit numbers are decreasing instead of increasing. Oh crap!! We are driving in the wrong direction. I'll turn around at the next exit. Where is the next exit? I'm definitely not going through that toll point. Whew! There is an exit just before the toll point. What! This exit leads to another toll point on the highway going east. OK! Pay the toll stop on the side and let the GPS take us back to the hotel. This is better we are off the highway system and on the country roads heading for the hotel. Boy! it sure is dark outside. Lucky we have the GPS. Oh! Oh! - that road is closed. I'll keep driving and the GPS will reset. Yep, knew it would.
I'm sure we passed that old building before. There's that closed road again. What the #@! Yes, I know it's really late Gail!! I'll just hit the detour button on the GPS and that should fix it. Do you have a $ for the toll? Now we are cooking! Finally home. Lets go straight to sleep!
