Back Home From Alaska


Hello again!  I returned from a gorgeous coastal cruise on Oceania’s Regatta earlier this week.  We embarked in LA,  headed up the coast through Oregon, and finished in Vancouver, BC.

Cruising under the Golden Gate Bridge was a highlight of the trip.  I woke up early, at 5:00 a.m., so that I wouldn’t miss it.  I took a tour of the city, and saw sights that I had never seen, although I grew up twenty miles from there.  

Alaska, as always, was a gem.  The views and atmosphere were  spectacular.  There is such a nurturing and special feeling in the air; it feels untouched by civilization.  I enjoyed a couple of kayaking expeditions with my fellow travelers.  Each day was exciting and new.  The food on Oceania was superb.

  1. It all sounds absolutely wonderful. Welcome home. xx

  2. I am looking forward to more pictures and stories from your cruise. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities.

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful time, Stephenie! I'd love to see the Golden Gate Bridge as I'm currently into my sixth Armistead Maupin Tales from the City novel! xxx

  4. What a wonderful time you must have had.
