Photo Finish Friday- Cruising Along

The viewpoint at Abraham Lake west of Rocky. It's one of my favourite scenes.

If you nice people will excuse me I'll be gone for a bit.
Mr. Goat and I are away until Feb. 02 on a cruise from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Valparaiso, Chile, with a stop in the Falkland Islands. We go through the Straits of Magellen and around Cape Horn. I get to wander around Tierra del Fuego.

It's a combination celebration of our 10th anniversary back in September, my 50th birthday in November, and my successful recovery from that nasty bit of business with heart failure last year.

We leave tomorrow. I will leave a nightlight on for anyone who'd like to stop by the blog while we're out.
Please talk amongst yourselves.
I'll see about a fresh post around the end of the first week in February.

You will be greatly missed, and we will all be here excitedly awaiting your return and tales of adventure (and it really does sound like a proper adventure!)

Have a fabulous and well-deserved break.

Damn, I don't fit in suitcases anymore!

Have a glorious trip, it sounds fabulous. I know there will be many, many lovely tales and photos for you to share when you get back.

In the meantime, we will try to clean up after the party, but you might find a few surprises when you come back. ;)

Leah J. Utas said...

Erm, I usually like surprises, Reb, but there's something ominous about your tone...
