What a beautiful picture!
I teach junior achievement for elementary schools, and always ask the kids to tell me something unique about themselves, and i always do the same. This was just this past December and I had a little 4th grade girl tell me she was living in Toledo just while her family was passing through, and had never seen snow. Of course this was the only mild winter we ever had. Well during their lunch, it actually started snowing! With permission of the teacher, i took her outside so she could check out the snow. I wish i could bottle the feeling i got watching her face watch the snow...it was simply magical! I will never forget it! :-)
But back on topic...cruise to nowhere still sounds fun! :-)
