Summer travel for me is escaping to a cooler climate. While I love the wonderful gardens and floral offerings of the south, a respite from the heat is always exciting to me.
Our favorite trip to take is an Alaskan Cruise. There is something restorative to me about watching whales jump, eagles soar, and marvelous scenery. The tiny fishing villages intrigue me as we pass by them. I wonder “What must winter be like in this frozen country?”
One of our most favorite things to do is to have coffee on the deck and watch the eagles soar. I’ve never really considered the vast size of these glorious birds. Oh my—when the first one flew overhead I could hardly believe it!
The gorgeous evergreens seem to stand majestically at attention. I can only imagine the fragrance if you were lucky enough to walk through the “Christmas tree” forest. I never tire of the landscape.
I am most astonished by the glaciers. The rich turquoise color of the frozen ice fields is breathtaking. Seeing that makes me appreciate the greatness of creation, for I know this is how it must have looked. The waterways around the glaciers are sacred grounds and they are kept pristine and untouched with respect to the wildlife living there.
If you want to experience an amazing state, cruise to Alaska. You get a taste of many little towns and the glorious landscape.
