Boston Harbor (without the u) was my backyard for a summer.
And I’d look longingly out to sea as I cleaned out the ice cream vats in Quincy Market in the humid heat.
I’d be daydreaming of those revolutionaries chucking tea into the water and blaming the Red Indians.
Back then I took one day off in 40 days and headed to Manchester, New Hampshire.
Instead of Cape Cod… I’d put it on the long finger and, like all things on that digit, I never got round to it.
So let me flag up American Holidays www.americanholidays.com to get you there.
And I reckon that if Cape Cod was good enough for the Kennedys!
AH’s Boston Cape Cod Stay and Bermuda Cruise is from €2,085pps.
You’ll spend three nights at the Midtown Hotel, Boston, with a seven-night cruise on Norwegian Gem.
Three nights Cape Codder Resort & Spa Hyannis with three days car hire.
Travelling April 2020.
Like Cape Cod I was on my way to the Bahamas but we didn’t get there… you will though.
My little Princess
It’s an occasion, the naming of a new ship.
And you have my permission to name the latest Leviathan Bandanaman after my ashes are one day scattered on the Seven Seas.
Princess has named its new ship Discovery which being of the Scottish variety gets the thumbs-up from me.
Discovery was the ship Captain Scott took to the Antarctic and can now be found in Dundee which titles itself City of Discovery.
Princess Discovery’s inaugural voyage is a seven-day Mediterranean and Aegean cruise from Rome to Athens next November 3.
It can be combined with the subsequent seven-day Athens to Barcelona voyage to form a 14-day Adriatic & Aegean Medley sailing.
Of course Rome, Athens and Barcelona are among the world’s great cities.
Here are some thoughts… Small roads lead to Rome, https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/09/10/cruiseday-tuesday-11/.
