Things to Do in Seattle, WA: Ride the Ducks

If you are looking for a fun way to explore Seattle, Washington give Ride the Ducks a try. The Ducks are WWII amphibious landing craft that cruise around the streets of Seattle and then plunge into Lake Union for a tour by water. It truly is a party on wheels.

Ducks Entering Lake Union

Your wacky guide, ours was Captain Phlip Dover, will point out all the popular landmarks while on your 90 minute tour. You'll see the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, The "Sleepless in Seattle" Houseboat, Gas Works Park, and more.

If you take the tour be sure to play along with the captain. You can be as silly as you want and have a fantastic time. And, if you happen to ride along with Captain Phlip Dover tell him Bubba says, "Hi and Uff da!"

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.
