Having comfortably adjusted to pacific time, Kat and I are headed out again. This time is much more low key: we leave for an Alaska cruise on Saturday.

My parents came along with this idea some time last year. They have done the Alaska cruise before and wanted to take us with them. Fine by me.

I guess I don’t have much to say about the cruise other than “we’re going”. With the China trip two three weeks ago, I haven’t had much mindshare for the cruise. Plus, there isn’t much to plan: get on the boat and figure it out from there.

I’m planning to rent a 70–200mm lens for the cruise (since I don’t have a decent long lens). That should keep me occupied for a while, and get some nice pictures of the glaciers, etc. That was lens #2 on my recent Lens Wish List. I already bought lens #1, the 4.5mm fisheye. This is my attempt to stop myself from actually buying the zoom: I can play and get it out of my system.

    I went on an Alaska cruise when I was in high school, it was a blast. It was a week-long thing that stopped in a few cities on the way up. There’s some really awesome sights to see, especially Glacier Bay. Good idea to rent a long lens.
