For my grandparents’ golden anniversary (50th), we did a 2 week Alaska cruisetour, meaning 1 week overland to Fairbanks, Denali National Park, etc and 1 week southbound Celebrity cruise of the Inside Passage.Â That was in July 1999.
This past month was my grandparents’ diamond anniversary.Â Can you believe that?Â They’ve been married for 60 years!Â They are 80 and 85-years old, and yet they still travel internationally with their whole family of 3 children and 5 grandchildren.
To commemorate 10 more years of my grandparents’ enduring love for each other and commitment to their family, we all went back to Alaska.Â We did another cruisetour, this one with 4 days on land visiting Denali National Park and taking the Alaska railroad, and a 7-day southbound Princess cruise.
Seeing Denali almost unchanged from 10 years ago seems an appropriate symbol of the timelessness of my grandparents’ love.Â The mountain and their commitment are both majestic in their beauty and awesomeness.
Congratulations, Grandma & Grandpa, and thank you for another wonderful trip together!
