A recurring theme of this trip seems to be having inadequate time to see everything. This again occurred in Washington D.C, where I would have liked to look through many of the Smithsonian collections, but instead only had time to see the major attractions.

Boston to Bar Harbour, Halifax and Charlottetown

Took a five day cruise from Boston on the MS Maasdam. Stopped in Bar Harbour, Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Highlights include the lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove and the gravestones of the Titanic passengers.

Los Angeles, USA

This was my third trip to Los Angeles and it’s not a city I especially enjoy, so this short visit was principally to visit the Harry Potter addition to Universal Studios.
