While visiting us last August, my second cousin, Lynnette, asked us to join her and Alice on an Alaska land and sea journey in 2014. Lon and I had talked seriously of going to Alaska in the past but had never followed through. This invitation was all we needed. We jumped at the chance to see Alaska and to experience it with two of our favorite people.
We had to get passports since the Holland America cruise ship we were taking was disembarking from Vancouver, B.C. On May 31st, Lon and I flew to Vancouver and spent the night at a Days Inn. Lynnette and Alice flew from Ohio on the same day and stayed at the same hotel.
|Here are Alice, Lon and Lynnette, at the Days Inn, early on June 1st, awaiting the shuttle to the cruise ship.|
