Planning and packing for THE TRIP!

Well, it's the day BEFORE THE TRIP...
time to wash clothes, pack up the bags
check off the list, hope nothing's forgotten.

It's difficult to sleep at night thinking
about my list, will I get up in time
for the 6 am shuttle to Las Vegas then
the flight to Seattle and bus to the pier?

All this happening in one day-don't want
to miss any connections or it's a long trip
to catch up with the ship in Ketchikan.

Here's to constant prayers for a safe journey,
good health and God's blessings to family
as we take this great new adventure-cruising
from Seattle to the last frontier-ALASKA!


  1. Ah, the before-trip jitters. I know them well. Once when I was flying solo to China the next morning, to meet Ken there, I got a call from the airline at 11:00 p.m. telling me the Portland to Chicago flight had been cancelled. Now THAT'S a legitimate excuse for pre-trip anxiety! (I called a good friend at 6:00 a.m., he drove me to Manchester, NH, and I caught a flight, by the skin of my teeth, to Chicago from there. Phew.)

  2. Bon Voyage! Have a wonderful time!

  3. You're three days into your trip. Jitters gone and the pleasure and excitement of this adventure are settling over you. I can't wait to read future blogs about where you've visited and what you've done.

  4. You are going to have such a FANTASTIC time, Lin!!! As Linda says, "Bon Voyage!"

  5. Arrgghhhh... when do we get an update? On second thought. Never mind. Just have a fabulous time and fill us in when you get home.
