Over the weekend of Sept. 22-23, Ros and I joined a group of her Eric Hamber High School teachers on an overnight cruise from Seattle to Vancouver. We got up at 6 to take the bus to Seattle at 7, got on the boat at about 1 pm, left the dock at 4, and arrived in Vancouver at 6:15 the next morning. Very short but it gave us an idea what cruising was like. I think I prefer more active holidays -- it was like staying in a big hotel or a resort. Not unpleasant but not very exciting. Lots and lot of people.
