I wake up early. Not as early as some, but early. As the summer season starts to swing into action, tourist season begins. As someone who recently was cruising, seeing the cruise ships sail in and out of the port is pretty cool. They are usually pulling in when I get up. And then pulling out after their port of call in Vancouver when I get home from work.There is something special living in a tourist destination. Sometimes I hate the crowds, but other times, I feel smug that I live somewhere that people pay money to visit.
May 9th, 2013 Extra-Ordinary: I am somewhere people want to be. That’s worth remembering.
I’m going on a cruise! To celebrate my mother-in-law’s 65th and my father-in-law’s 75th birthday, we are taking a vacation together. Everything is booked – flights were done today. And in December, me, Emile, my in-laws, my sister-in-law and family we’ll be lolling around the Caribbean. I think that will be okay, don’t you?
I’ve never been on a cruise, I am looking forward to it. Better yet, I will be able to see land for most of the journey, which means that I have a flawed perception that I could always swim to shore come any problems with the ship. We all have our hang ups people!
