​​​                   Alaska - Up Close and Personal

​We held an information session on our Alaska cruise scheduled for August of 2018 and had some heavy interest in the trip and presently have 30 people signed up.  This is not your typical cruise as we will truly be getting up close and personal.  We have been to Alaska three times prior and believe this will out do them all.

This is the ship, Island Spirit, and she holds only 32 passengers and will be our personal sailing vessel as we cruise the inter coastal waterways from Juneau to Sitka.  Forget the sport coat and evening dress and enjoy an outstanding cruise of jeans, shorts and sweatshirts. This will become your floating cabin as Captain Jeff takes us following whales and other wildlife as he steers us up close to beautiful vistas of glaciers, pine trees and mountains.  We enjoyed this ship on the Columbia and Snake rivers and look forward to having Captain Jeff share the tremendous vistas Alaska has to offer.  We presently have one cabin remaining.

This will promise to be a very lay back and comfortable adventure with great meals aboard the ship, as well as the included cocktail hour each afternoon at 5 PM.  

Many say, "I'll do that in a few years", but unfortunately a few years from now many will say, "I wish I would have done that when I had the chance."  Join us, as we enjoy the beauty and wildlife of our 49th State.

Carolyn's Travels

Well we have returned from 1000 Island and Ottawa and had an outstanding time.  Weather was outstanding when we took a 1 1/2 hour boat ride around the islands which is known for 1000 Island salad dressing.  Each of the 49 of us received a free bottle of dressing at our first hotel.

While in Ottawa, the nations capital, we visited their Supreme Court and not only sat in the chambers but we had a mock trial where Carolyn was the defendant accused of knocking a man down.  Thanks to her good looks and charm she got off even with a guy in the back of the court yelling she was guilty.

Also of interest was our visit to the Canadian Mint, but no, they didn't give out any free samples, but it was a very informative tour.

We also have the opportunity of stopping at Shaneateles Lake, one of the Finger Lakes just outside of Auburn, New York where we did some wine tasting.  The small community of Shaneateles looks to be a great destination of it's own.
