Vacations To Go

Volume 16, Issue 1

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Psalm 139:14

The Christmas season just seemed to fly away. Somehow I managed to skip a month of this newsletter. Sorry! Hope your holidays went well. With our friends coming to visit for a week, the day after Christmas, our vacation flew. So it is on to January.

It has now been 16 years since I started this website. Amazing! Glad to have all of you join our adventures.

Our spring break trip will be here shortly, Sakura-con on the Way to the Ocean. The guys will enjoy Sakura-con, while we browse the shops at Langley, Freeland and Coupevile before staying the night at our favorite Ft. Casey Inn. We will eat at the California Pizza Kitchen in Seattle, stop to see my cousin, and head up to Portland. We were most fortunate to get our favorite Wow House at Newport back, although a few less days. On the way we will visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory. During the week the guys will play games and we ladies look at the shops around Newport. Let us know if you would like to come visit.

June brings our 7 Night Alaska Cruise. First we visit Ice Strait Point. This time we will take the bus to Hoonah before coming back to the shops at the Cannery. Next comes Skagway with some shopping, before we take the bus out to our favorite 19th century cemetery and walk to Reid Falls. With a short day at Juneau, we will take the bus out to Mendenhall Glacier with a nice walk to Nugget Falls. Finally we end at Ketchikan, where we do our best shopping, with all of it's souvenir and a Christmas shop. Love cruising!

We just rented another house at the ocean for August 12-19, the Antiques, Plays and Ocean trip. It is the house we rented in 2015. It is large with room for just about everyone. On the way we will visit Leavenworth and watch the Little Women play. Then we are off to Long Beach for more shopping. We will do Astoria Sunday Market and Tillamook Cheese Factory on the way to Lincoln City. Then it is a week of games, shops and ocean fun.

Be saving for the "Italy and the Disney Mediterranean Cruise" trip should you care to come along. We will do a couple of days each at Venice, Florence and Rome before setting off for a Disney Cruise to Pompeii, Milan, Marseilles, Nice and Barcelona. We will spend a couple of days at Barcelona before flying home. The new Disney Cruises for the summer of 2019 should be out by April. Although we may not reserve one until we are on our Alaska cruise. We get the advantage of 10% off and a $200 stateroom credit when we book on the ship. We can each book a 2nd room, so if you wish to come, let me know.

Hope to see you on one of our adventures.
