Reading the National Narrative

To the Sea in Ships

May 4, 2018


This space has been quiet of late while I packed up the house I lived in with my family for thirty years and moved to a new base of operations. Buying, selling, moving: stressful times. But they are behind us now.

To celebrate, we are going on a cruise. An outfit called Uncruise Adventures has invited me to be on-board historian during one of its trips from Seatte through the Inside Passage to Alaska. That is the vessel above, the Safari Endeavour, our home for two weeks. While we are in BC waters I am the resident know-it-all, sharing what I can about the history of the coast. Should be fun.
