Today were bein' a particularly long day, which mostly consisted o' waitin', to be sure. And then some.
First o' all, we had t' get from our hotel t' 42nd river, where our bus t' Newark Airport were bein' destined t' leave. This meant we had t' travel with a subway train (6) t' Grand Central Station.
We got off th' subway and waited a little bit fer th' bus t' leave t' Newark.
Our tickets said that th' flight were bein' bein' carried out by United Airlines Express, which meant we had t' Get off th' bus and check our bags at terminal A. Unfortunately, this were bein' not th' case. As we found out a little while later after we checked our bags.
So, we were off t' go t' terminal C.
The only problem were bein' that th' Airtrain which rides betwixt th' three terminals at Newark were bein' not runnin' at all. And ye cannot walk from A t' C, we'll keel-haul ye, pass the grog! Bummer.
Eventually, we persuaded a bus driver from a hotel t' take us from A t' C. We owe this lubber a big thank ye!
Durin' every step above, we waited, avast. And did some more waitin'. It were bein' quite th' process.
Arrivin' at terminal C, we went through security (takin' off our belts, shoes and gettin' virtually every device out o' their bags and pockets) and went fer breakfast. We were quite hungry by then!
After settlin' in at gate 95X we waited fer about 75 minutes only t' find out th' plane did not leave it’s previous destination yet! Shiver me timbers! So we waited fer more than o'er an hour extra. Yaaarrrrr! Finally, aroun' 1:45PM we left Newark. We left our hotel at 8:30AM.
There were some bright sides t' this story. We travelled through th' air fer about 1 hour in a Dash-300 TurboProp plane! That is quite somethin' else compared t' all th' flyin' contraption planes!
The pickup o' our rental boat also were bein' easy fast and a nice experience as we did not get th' boat we ordered but were silently upgraded t' a Volkswagen Jetta. Aye. Yaaarrrrr! A German boat. With a 2.5 litre US engine, we'll keel-haul ye! 😉
Tomorrow, we’ll travel from our hotel t' th' falls. Let’s see what this place has in store fer us!
