Spring Arrives!

Orange azalea

Wow, it has been a few months since I last posted – mostly because we have been busy with family (Mom died in January, we welcomed a new grandson in February), meeting up with our “beer peeps” at local breweries, getting better at our hobbies (crochet and glass totems), working out at the gym and planning the year’s adventures, but NOT actually getting out and about in the Winnebago.  Not really anything blog-worthy.

But now that warmer weather is kind of here (still some freeze warnings), we have some fun stuff going on.  Big news is an upcoming cruise to Nassau, Bahamas and Princess Cay with Dad again.  He loves it and we don’t mind being the designated cruisers.  So the next blog post will probably be all about the trip with some cool pictures posted.  Besides chilling on the ship, Jackie and I are looking forward to snorkeling at Princess Cay and then checking out the grounds and aquarium at Atlantis on Paradise Island.  This trip we figure it’s time to have a look.

Other plans for the spring include a return to Panama City Beach with the motorhome and the pets for two weeks.  That should be AWESOME, since we booked our favorite campsite and should have fun paddleboarding, snorkeling and swimming.

Then in June we fly to Alaska for a cruise with my brother and sister-in-law.  We start in Anchorage and travel south to Vancouver.  Whale watching, zip-lining, dog sledding, glacier watching, train rides, tram rides, beer sampling — gosh this one will be great.  So that should be another good posting on the blog page, with pictures and probably some video of whales (we hope).

In early fall we have a long motorhome trip planned for New England to be leaf peepers and catch the fall colors.  Up through Michigan, across Ontario, into New England and over to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park before heading back south through Pennsylvania and down the Shenandoah Valley.  Now THIS trip will definitely include a lot of our soon-to-be-favorite breweries along the way.  Already have them marked on the map!

So, as soon as the pollen stops clogging things up we can take the cover off the motorhome, de-winterize, flush and fill and get ourselves back into camping mode.  It feels like it has been a long winter and too long between our outdoor adventures.

Keep an eye out for blog updates soon.  As always, thanks for stopping by to see what we are up to.  Oh, and if you haven’t had a look at Doug’s crazy new hobby of glass totems, be sure to click the link.

    What link???

    Cassie lives in Anchorage and I’m sure would love to have you if you need a place to land before boarding your cruise ship. They have room. And dogs.

    We’ll see you in the fall – I’ll be teaching of course but still looking forward to a quick visit with you guys. Great picture of you both!

    I’ve missed your blog, since I live vicariously through your trips. Please post when you go. I really love reading them.

    • Gosh, that’s nice to hear. I will do my best to write the stories and post the pictures of our wandering adventures. It’s fun to review some of them ourselves, thinking “did we really do that?”
