We will be off to Seattle to pick up the National Geographic Sea Bird on a photo expedition to Alaska. We have been with them in Alaska before and enjoyed it so much we decided to add Canada's Inside Passage.
For the past couple of days, Linda has been getting reacquainted with the ranch routines, but there was time to go on a short hike this morning. The desert is greening up and a number of plants are in bloom. It was a bit warm at our rest stop, Emma thought. Aunt Linda obliged. We are off on vacation without a care.
