Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Canada
Two weeks from tonight we’ll be heading west, young man. Enroute to Vancouver where we’ll be boarding the Island Princess for our trip through the Panama Canal. All our excursions are booked, all our plans for “non-excursion days” are made. The suitcase sits in the “packing room” and items are starting to gather there. As I think of things I’ll need, they are hunted down and thrown on the floor near the duffle. Pretty soon I’ll be scouring the closet for the necessary cruise wardrobe. This trip might be tough to pack for. It may be cool in B.C., but stinking hot down in Costa Rica and Columbia. My research indicates that it could be wet down in Central and South America, and the forecast for the next couple of weeks proves that prediction accurate. Lots of rain and high temps. Could be a bumpy ride!!
