Provincetown, MA Adventure May 18-21 2017

[May 18-21 2017, Provincetown, MA, US]

Okay, I was on a real puddle jumper. One pilot, no co-pilot. Crammed into a Cessna 402C on Cape Air – from Boston to Provincetown, MA. It was amazingly totally cool. I was going there to a new science fiction con (Nauticon) I haven’t been to. The flight was the best. Provincetown was amazing. The very tip of Massachusetts 🙂 (Click on the last picture below to see more amazing pictures…)

The only picture I took st the science fiction convention was this – the bottles we tasted at the Scotch tasting. (That was super great. Had a “can only get in Scotland” bottle, the leftmost, that the presenter brought back from Scotland. I tossed the program guide and I don’t recall his name so apologies for that.)

So that is how close I was sitting – right behind the pilot:

Leaving Cardiff Central…

This paragraph is repeated in all five parts of this “Planes, Trains, and Cardiff and Doctor Who” posts, so if you read it once no need to read it four more times! Well, unless you want to. In 8 days, I went to, in order: DCA (Washington DC, USA) to ORD (Chicago) to LAX (Los Angeles) and stayed overnight there. Went from LAX to YVR (Vancouver) and hopped on a BA Airbus A380 to LHR (London). Then went on the Heathrow Express to Paddington. Caught the GWR (Great Western Railway) to Cardiff. Walked to Holiday Inn hotel next to the Principality Stadium. Went to Cardiff Castle. Hopped on the water taxi to Cardiff Bay. Walked over to the Millennium Centre. Then walked to the Doctor Who Experience (where I shot most of the pictures). Came back. Hopped on the water taxi and went back to the hotel. Then train from Cardiff Central to London Paddington. Walked to the Hilton Metropole hotel. Visited my old hangouts – Sherlock Holmes Pub by Charring Cross and then off to Waxy O’Connor’s by Piccadilly Square. Back to the hotel.
