Mountain Point Snorkeling

 Steve and Kathy Buss of Shiocton went snorkeling at Mountain Point Snorkeling in Ketchikan Alaska on September 20, 2012. Out of 2500 passengers on the Sapphire Princess only four were brave enough to get in the Alaskan water. They saw many colorful starfish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers and an Orca whale even made an appearance further out in the bay. Seeing Mt. McKinley three days in a row is apparently quite rare, but this made the trip even more memorable!


Gondola Cruise, Venice

St. Pierre & Miquelon “Expedition”

Well, maybe not exactly not an “expedition”, but almost like one! Gravel roads, ferry crossings, moose sightings and Zodiac rafting made for an exciting trip for the VandeVyver’s of Black Creek. To get to St. Pierre they needed to take a ferry out of Fortune, Newfoundland. To reach Miquelon they had to take a Zodiac raft. Mike does not suggest driving a low car on the roads there, they used an all-wheel drive van and wore out all the brakes, broke the driver side window and could not open the rear door due to all the dust! Mike recommends that you use a tent as many pull-behind campers were wrecked. You should plan on allowing three week and 6000 miles to completely enjoy this trip.

For those concerned about safety traveling in the Middle East, YMT does a great job of looking out for your security and safety.
