Hello from port isaac. Having a fine time on vacation. The one glitch in my plans is having no GPS system in the car I rented. I asked for one when reserving months in advance but they didn't have one ready. Also, I didn't prepare a data plan on my phone either, although I hope to find a place to get a sim card in Bath or oxford today. I had planned to get a sim card in London, but there was a glitch in getting AT&T to unlock the phone my friend gave me.Which they've done now by the time I was leaving Manchester.... Anyway... I was a bit frightened by driving from New quay to port isaac Sunday night. But I did it! What an adventure! I was prepared for driving in left lane, but the added challenges are no shoulders and roundabouts at most intersections. Also being second nature to look and drive U.S. style. Whew! With a road map and following signs that point the direction of the city, I made it. Oh another challenge , not many street signs!! Ha but I'll learn more today. I'm driving to Bath and then On to oxford. I cannot wait to return the car in oxford!!! I'll have to buy a road map once I get gas somewhere along the way. Today will be an adventure and we're only made stronger by facing our fears. Sorry for the break in posts, just one of those busy summers...
