Hi Again - it is a cold day in our last port, Portland, Maine, and we have been here at least 3 times before, so we are currently sitting in the Concierge Lounge where we have a good phone and internet signal. We are waiting for it to warm up a bit so we can go out for a long walk. In the meantime, I will tell you about the port experiences we have been having. Portland was our first stop last week and the day was nicer. Here is a picture of the city:

Oct. 25 Hello Blog Readers. This is the first opportunity we have had to update you, due to lack of time on the cruise ship, and also limited internet opportunities since we were in Canada a lot of the time. So updating you will be a long post, with lots of pictures, possibly done in several increments. Before I begin telling you about our doings, I will share with you that today is the 5th anniversary of our wedding, which was held at our RV clubhouse in California. Tonight we will be celebrating in one of the specialty restaurants on the Brilliance of the Seas. Our good cruise friends, Marcia Albritton and Lisa Romine, will be joining us. They are identical twins, and Pinnacle members, so everyone calls them "The Twinacles". Next post I will have a picture for you. The last update was after our first day in Boston when we were escorted around by Nancy & Bob Colbert, and had a great day. The next few days we were on our own but managed to see and do a lot because we bought a 7-day pass on the subway, which they call the T. Our first use of it was to go from the airport to our room, which we had secured on www.airbnb.com. Here is a picture of Elaine enjoying it.
