Back from Holidays!

August 24, 2012

Back from holidays…………….darn. 

Well, I’m back from holidays. My wife and I spent 1 week on the MS Zuiderdam cruising the inside passage to Alaska and back. There were 3 ports of call with a full day at Glacier National Park. We wined, we dined, we relaxed.

On board the ship we attended 2 wine tastings put on by the ship’s Sommelier Bernie. Bernie was a hoot. His basic philosophy is “Any wine you enjoy is a good wine. Just make sure it is a good match with the foods you eat.” Which is great advice. All food tastes better when paired with an appropriate food and vice versa. 

We also took in a lesson on culinary cooking which will definitely help us with the above philosophy!

Our second week was on Vancouver Island visiting my mother. We went to the beach, the pub (enjoyed some great beer) and lounged on my mother’s deck. 

Now I am back at the store just waiting to bore you with my holiday stories : )

See you soon.
