Conclusion of New York... and Cruise

While in New York, we took the subways over to Hoboken, NJ, to see the famous "Carlo's Bakery" from the show, Cake Boss.
Picture (below) taken on a galloping horse, apparently. Ha!

As you walk in, you are handed a number because of the crowds. I guess it looks like this everyday. Incredible!


Below, one of the sisters, in red.
We had to catch a Broadway musical while in town.
The set of Wicked!!!
Our Ship



Below, the big screen on the main deck. A couple of nights we watched movies out there. It was just like going to a drive-in. They were great comedies...so fun!!
First Port-Stop...Boston.


I LOVE all the historical sites and architecture there!!!

This photograph (below) is from the last time we were in Boston, visiting my brother and his family. We came a little too early in the season to see leaves like this, this time.
Goodbye Boston!
Next Port...Maine.
Portland Head Light, below. I was so happy that the weather was perfect that day!


Again...in LOOOOVE with the architecture!!!




Third Port...St. John, N.B., Canada
Our Tour Guide, all decked out. : )
Charming Canadian Market.
I got a kick out of this T-shirt, below.
I bought "Sebastian" at this stop. Don't forget about him, because I photographed him in all the places we visited thereafter...(another Post sometime).





Each night when you come back to your room, while on a Cruise, you will find a different "towel animal" there. This was my favorite.
Last Port...Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse. Beautiful!!!


What a wonderful adventure!!!

'Tis the Season...time to pull out all the "stuff"! :-D

It sounds and looks like you had a great time. I love seeing the old buildings/architecture like that. Those cupcakes look yummy. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Looks like you are getting ready for Halloween. :D
Have a great week.

When you were at Carlos' Bakery, you were 2 blocks from where my daughter lives. Every day she takes the Path train into the city for work. Wicked...my favorite musical of all time...did you like it? The New England/ Canada part of your trip looks marvelous! I have been to Boston (sooo much history to see-loved it!) but I've not been to the other places that you and Sebastian traveled..adding it to my bucket list for retirement! Thanks for letting us see all of these great picures ML.
Now-get hopping on your Halloween decorating! I finally did mine today.

What a lovely vacation. You look so relaxed, and I love your "nautical" outfit. That Sebastian is a cutie! I always wanted to take one of those "New England" type cruises. It looked like you had a ball. So many beautiful photographs. I'll keep my eyes peeled for future "Sebastian" sightings! ;)

Fun pictures, Mary Lou! Looks like you had a fabulous time. How did you like Wicked? Carrie and I saw that while we were in New York in 2006 and we loved it!

Creative Breathing said...

This post is astonishing to me! I have always wanted to take a cruise, but my husband is not interested at all in the warm weather ones. I've just called down the stairs about yours from NY to Canada. "Hmmmm" he's calling back to me, "Sounds interesting!"
Fingers crossed! Elizabeth

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

All great places but I think Halifax would be my favorite. Reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. Looks like an incredible trip.
