Lowes Royal Pacific Resort

For this trip to Universal Orlando we decided to try out the Royal Pacific Resort. “Aloha!” was the phrase we heard most from the friendly staff. Even though it was the middle of winter there were enough flowering plants to brighten up the grounds. Everywhere you look there is some South Pacific themed decoration.



The Wantilan Luau only runs on Saturday off season so we didn’t eat any meals at the resort. But, we did stop at Jake’s American bar for a late night snack. The resort describes Jake as “The pilot of his own island-hopper airline, Jake also runs this friendly bar that's the perfect place to meet for drinks and lively conversation after your day's adventures.” We would agree.


The hotel is big into the frog theme. Scattered everywhere are statues of these little green fellows. Peg enjoyed them so much that she bought one at the hotel shop to bring home. We definitely enjoyed our stay at the resort.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

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.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

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.
