My son and I ended up doing a few fun things this summer – we camped a lot in June. I was doing field work (research on Western Pond Turtles), so we spent a bunch of time camping out near our research site. Even though I was working part of the time, we still had fun camping.
The big adventure, though, was a trip to Alaska. I decided about a month before school started up that I wanted to go somewhere I’d never been before, so I booked the two of us on an Alaskan cruise. It was FANTASTIC! Not only did we see some spectacular scenery, we saw a bunch of amazing wildlife as well. I think my favorites were the Orcas (killer whales). It was a wonderful trip, and in addition to the great things we saw, I really, really enjoyed the time I had with my son – we had so much fun together, it was totally worth going.
