Neal and I just love Alaska! If you haven’t been, let me suggest taking a cruise through the glaciers. In our hurried world, a cruise allows us to retreat to tranquility and to observe the untouched shores where glaciers touch the water.
Now I had heard about glaciers my whole life and really never expected to see such a splendid sight. As the ship moved into Glacier Bay, there was a hush of respect for the untouched nature that was before us. We watched the wildlife in the freezing cold turquoise waters move onto icebergs to rest.
The cold air was refreshing and chilled us to the bone. When the glacier would break and a slice would fall into the water, a loud thundering sound would echo down the Fjord. We stood in awe of the majesty of creation.
When we got married, we took all our children and grandchildren on this cruise to celebrate. Don’t be afraid to bring children because even the youngest will adore this cruise. Everyone in our family came away with favorite experiences from salmon fishing to eating smoked salmon and local cuisine in the villages. Neal and I love to stroll and explore the wonderful little towns in Alaska.
I always find quilt shops and buy fabric and yarns native to Alaska. What a treat!
If you want to see splendid scenery and nature at its finest, take a cruise through this beautiful state. You will create memories that will last a lifetime.
Tell me: Are you planning on taking a summer cruise? Any tips or insight you’d like to share?
