You know my philosophy: Either things go great, or it’s material. Win-win.
So I never even hope for smooth travel; I kind of wait for the disasters and, as you know, travel never disappoints.
This time we cruised to Alaska with dear friends and had a fabulous time with them. St. Bob’s text notification is a quacking duck, so every time ducks flew overhead (which was often) he pulled out his phone to check his messages. Much to my amusement.
Did we see whales?
Nope. Did we see bears?
Nope. Did we see the Northern Lights?
Nope. Did our helicopter ride to the top of a glacier get cancelled due to bad weather?
Yep. Did our whale-watching excursion get cancelled as well? Yep. But we did get to zip-line, see two bald eagles, and eat ourselves into oblivion. I think that last one is required on all cruises.
Well, that and watching my Youtube Mom videos here.
