Jiggety Jig. From the Cruise, that is. Yes I’m happy to be home again with my feet firmly planted on the ground after our wonderful cruise to Alaska. Benji and Tiger are also happy and welcomed us back with love and open paws, not to mention forgiveness for having left them for the week. Of course they were well cared for in our absence but they have assured me they much prefer my presence to not. Benji, the most affectionate one, is insisting on being near me, beside me, or soft and snuggly on my lap since our return. Tiger is also looking for his share of love and assurance that I will never leave again. (At least anytime soon.)
Now, about that cruise! l think I may have discovered the very best way to travel! Okay, I also love flying, camping, road trips, bicycling, etc. but at least for now cruising has my vote. Just check right into your floating home and leave the rest to them. Let them do the navigating while you take in new vistas minute by minute, hour by hour and day by day! Breathe in fresh marine air every morning as you walk on the Promenade Deck. Three laps and you’ve walked a mile. You’ll need that walk to work off all that wonderful food you are eating morning, noon and night. But don’t walk too fast or you might miss the whales or the glaciers or the seals or the mountains or even the mountain goats as you make your way into Southeast Alaska.
I am still sorting through the best of the Alaska photos (I won’t tell you how many hundreds I took) and will bring them to you in my coming posts. But for now, I leave with you the views from our ship as we departed Seattle and our first sunset cruise that evening.
More to come. Stay tuned.
