Vacations To Go

Volume 16, Issue 3

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness,
faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life ...”

I Timothy 6:10-12

It seems that winter is still blowing snow into March. We have hope that spring will lift it's green head very soon. However, vacations are nearing...

Our spring bre
ak trip, Sakura-con on the Way to the Ocean, begins the end of this month. 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 were eating at the California Pizza Kitchen in Seattle for Easter, but alas, they have closed. So we will find a new spot to enjoy. Then we make a stop to see my cousin, and head up to Portland for the night. 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.

We are fully paid off for our June 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 perhaps an excursion to see some dog mushers, some shopping, and a 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!

August brings our, August Fun at the Ocean trip. It is the house we rented in 2015 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 the Astoria Sunday Market and Tillamook Cheese Factory on the way to Lincoln City. Then it is a week of games, shops and ocean fun.

We are looking forward to our "Italy and the Disney Mediterranean Cruise" next summer from June 12-July 2. We will do a couple of days each at Venice, Florence and Rome before setting off for a Disney Cruise. Then a couple of days at Barcelona before flying home.

The Disney cruises for the summer of 2019 are just coming out. So we will book the 2019 Disney Magic 7-Night Mediterranean Cruise from Civitavecchia (Rome) to Barcelona. Although we may not reserve a room 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 should you care to come along, please let me know.
