Off the Grid

“From the floors of the ocean, the waves of the tide, a vacation awaits you far and wide.”

Those of you following my blog know it went dark last week. Why? I was out cruising to Alaska.

I’ve been writing this blog since 2012, and I usually pre-schedule posts during holidays and vacations. This time around, I took a true break.

So if you’re looking to do some virtual escaping, here are a few highlights from my trip:

1) Animals. Every night we got a special towel animal in the room.

Made this one during towel folding class!

2) Food. We had a great buffet on a boat cruise.

Ate lots of salmon. (This pic was during teatime.)

3) Lumberjack show. Saw a fun competition featuring rugged men.

Lumberjacks at work. What else do I need to say?

4) Tropy. Won a prize for a general trivia contest.

5) Whales. Had a whale of a time! (We actually saw one arc in front of us, but I couldn’t catch it in time.)


See that black blip? It’s a whale tail.

Any fun vacations for you this summer?

  1. We took an Alaskan cruise a few years back. Had a great time. Alaska is so beautiful, and we lucked out and had warm weather too. Who would’ve thunk it?

      It’s gorgeous over there. Luckily, we must have brought the sunshine with us because there wasn’t much rain :)
