This weekend we head up to Alaska. Anywhere to get away from this heat! No, I have always loved sagas of the high seas, and had always wanted to go for a ride on a big ship. My wife not so much, but she has always wanted to go to Alaska. So she proposed that we celebrate our 40th anniversary (40!) on August 7 with an Alaska cruise! How brilliant and thoughtful she is. So we saved our pennies and made our plans, and now the time is here. We leave Sunday and will be gone for around two weeks, with some time before and after the cruise to do a little exploring of Alaska and Canada on our own.
Don’t worry, though. I expect to be able to keep up the blog. The ship has Wi-Fi. I don’t think it violates the point of a vacation to blog. That’s not my job. It’s my hobby. But I reserve the right to miss a day or not post quite so much.
We go north, the rush is on.
