What’s top of my mind: Getting the house and garden to rights. I’ve finally got my strength back after that nasty bug I picked up in Alaska. I’m looking at all that has to be done before I disappear on my next holiday. Fortunately, I have until September, so the situation isn’t dire, but I’ve […] The post Wednesday W’s #107. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

What’s top of my mind: Nothing. It’s a very calm and peaceful place at the moment, my mind. Where I’m going: to the backyard. Yesterday I finally felt energetic enough to go out into the backyard and do a day’s gardening. I cleared out both patches of warrigal greens and chopped and dropped the last […] The post Wednesday W’s #106. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

What’s top of my mind: Nothing much. I’m a simple creature at heart… Where I’m going: Afternoon coffee. Izzy’s mum has had a procedure on her sinuses and is taking a few weeks off work while she recovers. I’m popping into her place to have a coffee and a chat, now that she’s feeling a […] The post Wednesday W’s #105. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

Here is the last view from our balcony. What a beautiful sight to wake up to. I don’t think that any awakening will top our first morning in Banff though, when Megan pulled back the blinds and said, “It’s SNOWING!” That was a great moment. We went down to breakfast and while we were there, […] The post Day 25- Canada/Alaska – Home again! appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

This is what we woke up to this morning. The Silver Muse was still making her way towards the docks at Valdez. The air was fairly cold but it was all utterly serene. This was the view from our balcony once we docked. It looked almost like someone could drive right on up to the […] The post Day 24 – Canada/Alaska: Valdez… pronounced ‘Valdeeeez.’ appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

This turned out to be a very special morning. I saw a glacier calving! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. See that line of ice level with my eyes? That’s the glacier, and you can see its reflection directly underneath. This glacier is falling into the sea. The voice of the glacier expert came […] The post Day 23 – Canada/Alaska: Glacier Bay. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

What a lovely little place to wake up to! This was the view I saw when I drew back the curtains. It wasn’t a great morning. I was so SLEEPY… After the shenanigans of the first night of our trip, Megan’s snoring and sleepwalking had been fine. But unfortunately, the snoring reached new heights last […] The post Day 22- Canada/Alaska: Haines. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

At 5:30 that afternoon, we all gathered together for a minibus ride deep into the hills to see the dog camp. During the day we bumped into other people who had been there before us. They all raved about how good it was. Both Megan and I wore our old clothes so we could get […] The post Day 21- Canada/Alaska: Juneau part 2 – the DOGS! appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

Here we are, berthed in the capital of Aaska – Juneau! Yes, I thought it was Anchorage too, but Juneau, though tiny, had a far greater advantage than the more populous Anchorage. Gold. Though, as our guide to the sledding dogs’ camp said, “If anyone thinks they can retire up here and strike it rich […] The post Day 21 – Canada/Alaska – Juneau, part 1. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more

I got up this morning, threw open the balcony and out I stepped – into water! Yuck! So this morning’s shot was taken from the carpet inside the cabin. The ship was moving more markedly than usual and Megan decided she’d forego breakfast. She’s been having a bit of trouble when the ship moves too […] The post Day 20 – Canada/Alaska – Sitka. appeared first on Burning Desire For FIRE ..read more
