Not too long now!

I'm getting very excited about leaving on the 27th for the FGS cruise to Alaska!  I'm taking my sister Deb, we have a beautiful room with an ocean view, and we both can't wait.

We leave from Seattle.  On the "at sea" days, FGS will be putting on presentations and workshops, and they have some genealogy-related excursions (though Deb and I won't be joining those).  The ship -- Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas -- looks beautiful, with tons of activities and great looking food!

I've been to Alaska once before, but my sister never has, so that will be very exciting for her.  It's such a beautiful place, so much natural splendor -- it's the only place where the word "stupendous" has ever seemed an appropriate description.

The speakers sound wonderful too:  Elizabeth Shown Mills, Judy G. Russell, David E. Rencher, and D. Joshua Taylor.  Exciting!

I'm not sure whether I'll be able to blog during the trip -- what Wi-Fi there is on the ship is very expensive, I hear.  But I'll try, and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!
