The emails have been reviewed.
The SOWER newsletter is ready to go.
The banking and the credit cards have all been reconciled.
The pictures have been sorted.
I even put in a full SOWER work week.
Finally – a quiet afternoon (well, except for the shouting on the TV from the World Cup Finals) to write about The Sisters’ Cruise.
To say that this long anticipated Sisters’ Cruise lived up to our expectations would have to be an understatement. Our days started with coffee and Colossians (often on our sweet balcony)
and often ended with more balcony time and beautiful sunsets.
Or maybe a full moon, shimmering on the calm sea.
And in between? A bit of pool sitting,
a bit of game playing,
a bit of eating (ok, maybe more than a bit of that!),
a bit of napping,
a bit of reading
and a bit of being entertained.
(loved our seats!)
(In all honesty, we didn’t love ALL the entertainment, but we did love that we had the option to be entertained each night!)
The ship docked at four different ports – Portland (ME), Bar Harbor (ME), St. John (NB) and Halifax (NS). We opted to stay on the ship for the two Maine stops, and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet ship on those days.
Our view of Portland –
Our view of Bar Harbor –
We did enjoy bus excursions in both St. John and Halifax –
The Sea Caves at St. Martins (Bay of Fundy)
Peggy’s Cove, near Halifax, Nova Scotia
We relished each and every day – whether we were busy learning about the Bay of Fundy or the great Halifax Explosion of 1917 or just sitting on the deck watching the world go by.
Each day we thanked God for His faithfulness to us, His kindness to us in allowing us to have this oh-so-special time together, and the wonderful gift of our sisterhood (both in Him and by blood). To Him be all the praise and glory!!
Thanks for being patient with the long gaps between posts. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little glimpse of our Sisters’ Cruise 2018 and if you’d like to see some additional pictures (more or less in order!) you can check them out HERE!
