If you like rocks as much as Peg does, you should put the Gem Miner’s Jubilee on your calendar every year. Last weekend we made the trip up to the Lebanon Expo & Fairgrounds in Lebanon, PA to add to Peg’s ever growing collection of rocks. The Mid-Atlantic Gem and Mineral Association does a great job of organizing these events. You can find anything from Jewelry quality cut gems to raw slabs ready for finishing at the show.
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.
