Well we were bound to have a rain day. Most of the day Wednesday it rained. We had a few hours were it didn't but we decided to cut our losses and go play at the Chattanooga Aquarium. And what a great decision this would be. The aquarium is actually two buildings with different exhibits. They even have a mesmerizing butterfly room. It was sort of freaky to have all these colorful butterflies floating around you. In a different part of the aquarium, while no one was watching, I squished myself into one of the kid displays where you could be inside the aquarium. Always take time out to play. For dinner we had the "Magical Mystery Tour" pizza at the Mellow Mushroom just up the street. Yum!
If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.
Over 300 cars showed up early, starting at 8:00 AM, for the recent Hendersonville Cars and Coffee cruise-in. World of Clothing in Hendersonville, NC hosted the event and cars were spread out all across their large parking lot.
It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
