  2. So... Did you see any bears? When the Salmon are running - they have to shut the trails down many times, due to the bears moving in...
  3. Wow -- just finished catching up from Sunday... Fantastic Review Greg - I never get tired of the wildlife nor the scenery! Loving it πŸ™‚ Enjoy the land of the Midnight Sun. You're not making it this far up, our sun will set tonight @ 11:22 PM... It no longer gets truly dark until about the 3rd week of August or so...
  4. @Saint Greg -- Have an amazingly fabulous trip!!! I hit "downtown" Talkeetna today & by the number of Princess, RCL & Premier Buses - Tourist season has definitely started... I was checking mail & then drove by the softball field to see if the snow would be melted in time for the first tournament in 2 weeks... Barring new snow - it should be snow free - but may be wet. I stopped to enjoy Denali & the Alaska Range from the Denali Overlook today... And another slightly closer shot of Denali on 04/20/22 - same spot πŸ™‚
  5. @chemmo - carousels, roller coasters, log rides, scramblers, round-ups... Pretty much any ride πŸ™‚ Always remember... You have to grow old - but you never have to grow up πŸ™‚
  6. Chemmo - that's fantastic... I'd be right up there w/ you!!! I missed my chance to buy a Carousel Horse @ an estate sale, once upon a time...
  7. Hope you are enjoying your day in Seward, the sun, the warmth & the late night sunset!!! Cheers & have a Great Return trip to Vancouver. I may have to try to jump on a B2B this summer - but I'll be starting & ending on this end πŸ™‚ We always talk about watching for last minute fares, but it's so hard for us to leave AK in the summer!!!
  8. @chemmo - we've never cruised w/ RCL - what is a roundabout? Is that what we'd call a Carousel?
  9. JIm -- Thanks Again to you & Iain for an amazing cruise & overall Journey... Loved the unplanned addition of your time, since you disembarked in Southampton & on-wards to Scotland!!! The photos & stories have been fabulous, as always! ENJOY your time w/ Family!!! Take care, travel safe & make the most of your time while you are there πŸ™‚ Cheers -- Von & John
  10. Happy Birthday Yvonne 🍾 πŸŽ‰πŸΎ Enjoy your time in Seward!
  11. You most likely have already booked your hotel.. If not, are you flying into Seattle or Anchorage?
  12. Ken -- we cruised the Panama Canal on the Coral Princess, on the 2011/2012 Christmas & New Year's cruise... The entire cruise was amazing & the day of canal fantastic... At that time we saw them building the new canal... We had planned to sail the Celebrity Infinity from Fort Lauderdale to Valparaiso, Chile - Dec 2016. Unfortunately we had to cancel the cruise for medical reasons... We are still hoping to do another Panama Canal Cruise one of these days!! Enjoy your time on board πŸ™‚
  13. Thank you so much for your amazing review, photos, food & cocktails!!! Enjoy your July cruise & looking forward to your comparison πŸ™‚ Hopefully you will both stay C-19 negative in the next few days!
  14. Jim & Iain - wishing you a peaceful night tonight w/ great food & beverage & safe travels to Scotland tomorrow!!! On the side topic - scones & clotted cream... I printed both scone recipes last night & will bake those soon. We do not have access to clotted cream - imagine that in Talkeetna πŸ™‚ However, a friend brought back some imported lemon curd from Trader Joe's. Now, I also need to determine how I'd like to use the lemon curd.
  15. I wonder if that's an UK e-mail... We have not received notification either πŸ™‚
  16. The webinar kept freezing for us, as well... I screenshot the Thank You Time & ours ended @ 2:55 PM AK.
  17. We enjoyed our visit to the Isle of Wight - the beaches, village pubs & Osborne House and Gardens... Congratulations to both you & Iain on testing negative!!! That has to be a relief... Enjoy the rest of your trip - we are certainly enjoying your trip from Talkeetna πŸ™‚ Your pictures, as always, are Amazing!
  18. @mahdnc We were on the Connie 03/18 w/ Aft-Facing Cabin - deck 7... Our cabin was great! No quarantine nor isolation cabins in the vicinity.
  19. Jim & Iain -- Wow - sorry to hear of your change in plans. We've been very much enjoying your review & feel we are there with you in spirit... Hopefully this will turn out to be a false positive & you'll be able to enjoy your time at the Air BNB, prior to heading to Scotland... Love your upbeat attitudes - it's served the 2 of you well! I didn't check earlier today - as I needed to get my work done & I've played catch-up of the 7 pages, since your positive test. I'm sure the 2 of you are getting your beauty sleep at the moment & hope you awake totally refreshed for your disembarkation tomorrow... Would love to continue seeing the countryside, as you take your daily walks & explore. Thanks again for taking us with you! Cheers -- Von & John
  20. Thanks for the May 24th catch... Totally missed it on the e-mail πŸ™‚
  21. Our Aft-facing was on the Connie - so similar... We loved the size, the views, the ability to enjoy w/ multiple people. We had 2 regular chairs w/ foot rests & a dining table, as well as 2 loungers w/ a drinks table in between. Breakfast was amazing out there... Truly enjoyed cocktails, reading & lounging in our private little space πŸ™‚
  22. Congratulations on your additional points. We haven't earned that many & have participated on most activities... We don't do the Social Media activities nor did we receive any PUP's for specific cruises. However, between our recent cruise & the PUP's, we are close to the next level... Which is part of the fun πŸ™‚
