Alaska 2023

In September 2023, we did something different. Yeah, we went to Alaska again, which is not different. But this time we sailed on Holland America’s Westerdam. We like the Westerdam a lot! It’s an older, smaller ship, and it has the old-style full wrap around promenade deck that we love so much. We had some…

This sailing was on the Sky Princess, a very beautiful ship. We had our favorite cabin, “the big, fat mini-suite on Marina deck. On the Ship Some of the food on the ship was as good as any we’ve ever had on a ship. Some of it was pretty good. And some of it was…

Cruise on the Discovery Princess In our experience, all cruises are good cruises. This was a very good cruise.

Below are images and some nattering about our early April, 2022 camping trip. We went to Sunset Beach, near Watsonville, CA as the first stop. Below is the view out the back of our campsite – strawberry fields forever. Makes you want to sing about it, doesn’t it? The beach isn’t the greatest place to…

Coastal Cruise 2020

This was an unheard of short cruise for us. We’ve never done a really long one, but with one exception we’ve never done one less than a week. It was round trip San Francisco, so easy one for us to do. It went down the coast, stopping at San Diego and Ensenada. I booked this…
