Anchors Away My Friends....
1. To have a relaxing fun time with all the family members going along. There are 11 of us, aunts, uncles, sisters, our son, and my mom ( grandma to my son) . It is family history in the making, a trip that could never be repeated.
2. To see nature at it's best, looking to see whales, bear, or a moose or two... Do I get a refund if I don't see an animal of my choice?
3. To research for a children's book, a historical children's article, and both financial and environmental tidbits from this state.
4. To capture the entire thing in as many fabulous photos as I can for scrap booking, article additions, and sharing with those who can't be there.
AND for number 5 on my mission list. To visit every quilt shop at every port to collect flannels from Alaska for quilting and pillow cases. Flannel pillow cases make the best gifts for those dealing with an illness because of their softness and comfort.
Stay tuned for the research tidbits and writing accomplishments I make on this trip. Until the next time I get Internet service....anchors away my friends. Happy writing.
