Remember our cruise to Alaska? So did we... In fact we could not stop thinking about it. However, we also figured that we really should visit my parents in The Netherlands - the last time Murray saw them was in 2009 when they...

Murray's workshop
Looking back through my blog, I suddenly realized that among the many projects I mentioned, I forgot to tell you about Murray's workshop. When we bought the house, this old shed was in much need of some TLC. It was a filthy pigsty, full of mice and wasp nes...

Back to normal life - although, normal???
And so we have been back in Creston to enjoy the relaxed life here. Although, nothing in our life ever seems relaxed for long... our cats, if nothing else, make sure of that! I guess I'll have to start at the beginning, which was even before our cruise. I j...

Our cruise to Alaska - Scenic Cruising the Inside Passage
The last full day at sea already, time went so fast! According to the weather report, it was going to be a wet, gloomy and windy day. In other words: perfect to walk around the ship and take lots of pictures of the luxurious interior. Absolutely no expense ...

We arrived safe and sound in Schiphol, where our Tinker taxi was waiting for us already. It was a frightful drive from the Amsterdam airport to Rotterdam - all we could see was a huge mass of cars, all driving right on top of...

Where there's smoke...
About a week ago we looked outside our window, and we started wondering where the mountains had disappeared. Everything was hazy, it smelled smoky. We found out there are several forest fires in British Columbia and Washington, causing the widespread smoke....

Our cruise to Alaska - Ketchikan
To our surprise and delight, we woke up to a cloudless sky! We were well on our way to Ketchikan, our third and last stop. But first, we had breakfast served by the lovely Ria and Mulyono. By the time we finished eating, we were about to dock. Various views...
