Traveling In Luxury – At Sea

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

I love “at sea” days aboard a ship. For the Sea of Cortez cruise, I decided against Bingo, pasta cooking, digital workshop, a movie, or more. My goal was to do nothing on those four days but relax, read, write, and listen or dance to music. Each day was similar to the first “at sea” day.

Traveling In Luxury – The First Day

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

My husband Bob and I flew to San Diego a day early for our scheduled Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the MS Statandam. Good thing. Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew

Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival Promises Fall Fun

Few animals evoke Colorado’s rugged and unforgiving mountains like the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Yet the vertical terrain that keeps sheep safe from predators also limits opportunities for Coloradans to view and appreciate Colorado’s state animal. 

A happy exception for wildlife watchers is Georgetown, where the Town of Georgetown, the Georgetown Trust and Gateway Visitor Center, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) are finalizing preparations for the 8th Annual Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival.  The festival is timed to coincide with

Fun Ideas For Halloween

Roads Traveled with With Linda L. Osmundson

Fall is in the air. If the wind doesn’t strip the trees of their colorful leaves, clumps of rust, gold, green, and brown will continue to dot the landscape. Fall brings to mind Halloween and other holidays. Decorations of witches, ghosts, cats, and goblins appear in yards and porches in October. They wait to

Dixieland Jazz Festivals

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

At the time my husband retired from a position that required weekly travel, understandably, he wanted to stay home rather than hit the road again. However, that eventually changed. Now he wants to attend Dixieland Jazz festivals and go on a cruise once a year.

Sailing Through The Past

By the time this article makes the paper, my husband and I will be enjoying the last day of our cruise down the Mississippi (provided there is enough water) aboard the American Queen steamboat. Jazzdagen, our Dixieland Jazz cruise agency, hasn’t offered this New Year’s trip in several years. Now I know why.

The government maritime agency, which originally built the vessel, repossessed it and let it sit in Beaumont, Texas, for three years. Its sister ship, the
