Alaska snapshots!

I'm baaack! And I missed you guys! Seriously, I did. I know that some bloggers relish the time away from the net, unplugging and all, and I gave it a fair try - but seriously, it's not that relaxing for me. All day long I was composing possible posts in my head, adding more and more to the pile, until my brain was ready to explode. I did give the old pen and paper a try, but oh my word, am I ever rusty! I couldn't write fast enough for my jumbly thoughts, and pretty soon my hand started to hurt, so I gave up. It was a vacation after all, nobody got time for a sore hand, right? 
So long story short, I am thrilled to be back on my trusty keyboard, Corgi by me feet and the Internet at my fingertips. Ahh, the sweet joy!

There is a ton I want to share. A couple funny stories, some small epiphanies, some thoughts on the whole experience. But currently I am in that strange in-between stage, where I'm physically at home again, but my head and my emotions haven't really caught up yet - do you know what I mean?
So I decided to share a few photos first, and come back with more later. 
But before I get to that, I would like to thank you all so much for you comments and new follows! Best coming-home present ever!! I will start replying tonight! You guys are the bees knees. 

Glacier Bay.
 That blue drink was lethal! Alaskan Iced Tea, not for the faint of heart.
Mountains of BC.
 Dressed up for our formal dinner.
Real fur is a real seller in Alaska.
 Pouring rain in Ketchikan.
I had serious pet withdrawal, and was happy to make a new friend.
 This is how close I got to going into the pool. Aaalmost, but not quite.

Can you see the little seal, hanging out on the piece of ice?
Richard's eagle eyes spied whales, dolphins, and this seal for us.
 "Safety first!"
 One of my favourite parts of the trip: the nightly shows. There were broadway-style music and dance shows, a comedian, a magician, a game show, and Dancing with the Stars. It was so much fun!
 Skagway, the "gateway to the Klondike"
Another highlight: the nightly towel animals created by our stewart Bagus. I loved them!

That's it for now, see you all tomorrow!

Lots of love, Miriam

    1. Thanks!! It was a wonderful vacation, but I'm very happy to be back home! I always miss the farm and our animals when we are gone.

  2. Looks like so much fun! Love the photos - and those fur bathing suits are too funny! I hope you brought one home ;)

  3. What a fun trip!!! It looks like you really had a great time :) That Alaskan blue iced tea looks INCREDIBLE!! Do you remember what was in it? Also, what is with the fur bikinis? I wonder if swimming in it would come with the "wet dog" smell...ick...

    Welcome back!! We missed you too!

  5. So glad you had a great time!! Love all your pictures already and can't wait to hear all about it! Missed you..though I'm so far behind in blogging it is not even funny! This week has been rough, but today was my last day of work so yay!! I think I have a cold and it is trying to kill me so my excitement over no longer being at my 9 to 5 is fairly dampened right now :) Welcome back!!

  6. So exciting! The towel animals always crack me up. Love 'em. Glad you guys had a great time. Can't wait to see more.

  7. I looooove that first picture! Welcome back!

  9. That first photo. My favorite. You look so full of joy and love. Beautiful.

    And I suppose my employer would frown upon me indulging in an Alaskan Iced Tea at work, huh? Shame, because it looks tasty!


  10. O dear lordy that fur bikini is so ugly!!
