Blue Yonder homeward bound!


We drove for 2 1/2 hours following our gig on Saturday night, arriving at our lodging near Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, around 2 a.m. We stayed with a wonderful couple named  Dick and Sarah Henry. A little sleep and back in the van in time to catch our outbound ferry across to Portland, Maine.


There was live music on the boat, which helped to make the 5 1/2-hour trip go faster. We had a looooong wait at U.S. Customs, but eventually got back on the road toward home. We drove about four hours and stayed once again at the Hawthorn Suites in Meriden, CT. Will and I sneaked out and found a pool hall for a few games, after which we got a good night’s rest.


Ah – the glamorous life of a traveling musician! We got back in the van and returned to Charleston on Sunday evening with smiles on our faces, a few dollars in our pockets, and a bunch of fond memories. This was a good trip!

  1. Glad you enjoyed Nova Scotia. Both of my parents were born in Cape Breton and I believe it is one of the most beautiful places on earth. They would love your music there, I’m sure. Next time try to visit Cape Breton.
