Taking a break and a trip


We are both taking breaks from the computer for the next few weeks....and even unto Aug. 20. We will be leaving for Alaska on Aug. 9 and will not be taking computers or checking online. We both feel we need a break from the Internet world. We are looking forward to our cruise and to meeting Violette and Nicci in Vancouver. We will check in the 20th and probably post photos. We're taking our iPODS to download photos to, and we just both feel we have been too connected to computers for too long. Go to Holland America's website and see the mc Zuiderdam, our ship. We are leaving August 11 for the Glacier Bay/Inside Passage cruise. We fly into Vancouver on Aug. 10, and that is when we will be seeing Nicci and Violette. We will probably check emails until the 9th but will probably not be responding to comments on the blog. I do plan to write and write and write and read, and SEE ALASKA! And when we get back I'll complete the Carolina Byways quilt I'm making for my soon-to-be 42-year-old Kat in chocolates!

God bless you all, and we will visit with you on our return to planet Texas!!

Sounds wonderful. Morning Glory (my SIL) just returned from an Alaskan cruise. We want to do that one day.

Have a wonderful time. It's hard to be disconnected - it becomes an addiction and I felt weird when I couldn't find a place to check messages for a whole week! Good for us, though!
