Butchart Gardens

0 °F

While on Vancouver Island we visited Butchart Gardens, blooming for more than a hundred years. This is the Sunken Garden.

Setting Sail and all is Well

0 °F

We left Vancouver at 5pm on Sunday, right on time. The ship seems empty, with only 500 passengers, as the other 600 will join us in LA on Wednesday and when we reach Hawaii. Ed’s first interdenominational service was Sunday night with a few faithful folk.
. I will be posting in the blog mostly concerning port days, unless you want to see pictures of us on the ship walking, eating, and Ed working at the computer! Our 8:30 pm dinner companions are Tim and Doreen from Melbourne,Australia. They are sailing home after traveling for the past 2 months!
One of our little Swedish horses has hitched a ride with us- you may see him in the occasional picture!

Hasta visits Roy and Trigger

0 °F

In the Port of Long Beach we toured by coach to Los Angeles and on to Hollywood. The tour was brief, since our stop in the port was only 5 hours once the ship was cleared by port authorities.
No celebrity spottings, but we got a cruise (not Tom) along Rodeo Drive and a glimpse of Beverly Hills. And 10 shots of the “Hollywood” sign.
The ship is now full, as the other half of the passengers have boarded. The worship service this morning went well, as we meet new friends from around the world.

Sea Legs

0 °F

Someone near and dear has asked us for pictures from days at sea. Here you go, Soren: First is our favorite spot to work- the Crow’s Nest, way up on deck 12.
When we look out the window we are right next to the jogging deck (we do our walking on Deck 6 where 4 laps equal a mile).
