Hello my dear friends,

It is August and I would like to welcome all of you to my 1st August 2020 puzzle where I am hosting a virtual party on a Virtual Alaskan Cruise for all to celebrate the birthdays of August babies, as well as wedding anniversaries and all happy occasions :-)

On this virtual cruise ship there are lots of onboard activities, shore excursions, and dining options.

Ah, I see friends and guests arriving on the Magic Carpets that have been sent to them to fly them over to this cruise vacation.

Here come the birthday cakes displayed on a trolley that is being rolled in by a virtual server. The cakes are offered in a variety of flavours and are beautifully decorated.

Let us sing "Happy Birthday" to all our August babies. Let us raise our glass of champagne to wish them good health and happiness. Cheers, everyone.

By now, all of you must have known that I love food. Well, the virtual food on this Virtual Cruise Ship to Alaska is just amazing and delicious. Their specialities are seafood - salmon, cod, halibut,
Alaskan king crab, spot prawns, oysters and more.

We can dine at all the restaurants and and/or enjoy the buffets aboard the cruise ship. The food is simply wonderful and delicious.

During our shore excursions, friends who would like to try non-Alaskan food will find that there are Alaskan restaurants where they can choose from a diverse array of delicious foods - and yes, from all over the world.

Since we are in Alaska, it will be a good idea for us to try homegrown and homecaught food. May I suggest that we try fresh-caught Wild Salmon, huge Alaskan King Crabs, Sourdough Bread Bowl filled with Salmon Chowder and Alaskan Wild Berries.

In Summer, we can enjoy Alaskan flavourful and sweet wild berries. Alaskan blueberries, high-bush cranberries and other local wild berries are delicious. They are also available in jams, candies, pies and cobblers.

Friends who prefer non-seafood meal will find that options are always available for them.

While we are onboard the Virtual Cruise Ship, there are plenty of places for us to visit and lots of activities to keep us entertained, fit and healthy or looking beautiful. Here are some examples :

Gym, Spa and Beauty Salon, Hairdressing Salon, Art Gallery, Restaurants, Bars and Lounges, Family Lounges, Pool Deck, Outdoor and Indoor Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs and Whirlpools, Onboard Library, Movie Theatre, Games and Card Room, etc.

For folks who like to engage in sporting pursuits there are Basketball Court, Ping Pong Tables, Miniature Golf Putting Course, Golf Driving Range, Shuffleboard, a special place for Inline Skating, a Rock Climbing Wall, etc.

There are many opportunities to learn something :

Dancing Classes, Language Learning Program, Jewelry Making, Folding Artistry Class for napkin and towel design, Culinary Demonstrations and Wine Tastings, Cocktails Mixing Demonstrations and Guest Lecturers sharing tips and advice on topics that they specialise in, eg weight control.

Deck Parties, Sports and Game Competitions are daily events.

And more Entertainment - movies, music, broadway shows, comedies, magic, etc.

Do remember that that there is Onboard Shopping for fine, duty-free merchandise - eg Swarovski, Chanel, Calvin Klein, wines, high-end jewellery, local crafts and souvenirs.


A day before we reach Alaska, the Virtual Organiser and his friendly assistants will be happy to give suggestions, advice and tips as well as make arrangments for day trips on land and activities that may be of interest to all of you.

Anchorage is Alaska's largest city and from here we can travel to the other areas.

A visit to Juneau :
Juneau is Alaska's Capital City. It is located in Southeast Alaska.

Among other activities, a visit to Mendenhall Glacier and whale watching can be arranged at Juneau. How about taking a chartered helicopter tour at Juneau. We will have an unforgettable perspective of the majestic mountains and glaciers of the vast Alaskan landscape. And then, there is The Taste of Juneau walking tour or the Alaska Fishing and Wilderness Dining experience - this is where we will catch fish and cook it over a fire.

A visit to Seward :
Seward is one of Alaska's tourist attractions and it is one of its oldest and most scenic with the steep Mount Marathon behind this town. This seaside village has a busy harbour, quaint shops and galleries. It is a 2.5 miles scenic drive south from Anchorage. We will enjoy a stroll along its Waterfront Park. Keen on dog sledding? We can try it here. Whales watching? Ok, let us head for Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward.

Ride the Alaska Railroad Grandview Scenic Train from Anchorage to Seward :
This wilderness train route is scenic and relaxing. We will see picturesque glaciers, towering waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and mountains.

Cruise Misty Fjords near Ketchikan :
We will see green mossy cliffs as we cruise along this stunning and gorgeous landscape.

Rent a bike and explore Anchorage's Coastal Trail :
We can do The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail which follows the shore of Cook Inlet from downtown Anchorage to Kincaid Park. We will cycle along this 11 miles of paved path and explore the surrounding areas. As this trail is near the coast, we will get sweeping views of the rugged forests and the expansive ocean.

Visit Denali National Park :

This is a vast wilderness of taiga (boreal) forests of pines and spruce growing below towering peaks. This coniferous forest covers the hills and valleys of the northern part of Alaska. We will see aspen groves and spruce and then there are the meadows, marshes, lakes and rivers with wild animals. Denali is North America's tallest peak. Denali National Park will be an attraction for folks who like the wilderness, the wonder of spruce forest, snow-capped mountain peaks and fresh air.

Visit Glacier National Park :
Sail and admire the icy beauty of impressive glaciers, for example, the Hubbard Glacier and theTracy Arm Fjord.

For folks who are interested in shopping, this can always be arranged.


Dear Friends, thank you for joining me at this Monthly Virtual Party. Thank you for being such wonderful and friendly guests. I can see that many of you have mingled happily with mutual friends and have joined in various onboard activities as well as enjoying excursions together.

Before we disembark from the Virtual Cruise Ship, I would like to present all my friends with some souvenirs from Alaska : Birch Syrup, Jams and Jellies made from handpicked Alaskan berries. I hope that you will like these gifts.

I hope that all of you have enjoyed this virtual cruise and that you will enjoy solving this puzzle, too.

See you all on the 1st September for another virtual adventure.

Robin, you are most welcome. I am glad that you are enjoying this cruise :-)

I am glad that there are lots of delicious and nutritious non-seafood for you to try on this cruise. The Virtual Chef caters to everyone's taste and preferences.

Virtual Cruise Smiles,

I am one who prefers non-seafood, but there are so many delicious choices, I will have more than enough to enjoy. Alaska is beautiful. Thanks for the virtual cruise with all our jigidi friends. :)

Hello Rita,

Let me welcome you on board this Virtual Cruise Ship with a glass of champagne :-)
A toast to your good health accompanied with lots of happiness :-)

All the seafood on board (and on land trips) are delicious and nutritious.
The fresh fruits are just so yummy and the vegetables are great, too.
As for the desserts - ah, ever so tempting.

There is a box of chocolates beautifully decorated with edible gold leaf waiting for you at your cabin.

Please stay on board for as long as you like or just come back whenever you like and join any or all of the activities and trips that you would like.

I return here now and then to dream a little and to be away from real life for a while ;-0

Vacation Dreams Smiles,
Jason :-)

Jason, Another wonderful party planned. I'm looking forward to some grilled salmon and lots of champagne to toast all the birthday guests. I'm probably not alone in wishing to "get away" from reality and this sounds like the perfect plan. Thanks.
love,rita

jasonchung2

Iris, I am glad to hear that you love chocolate covered strawberries, too :-)

Shared treats taste so much better. You have a caring and sharing church member.

Joy of Sharing Smiles,
Jason :-)

I love chocolate covered strawberries too Jason. A member of my church used to make them and share them at gatherings. ☺

Pam,

Welcome on board, my friend :-)

Thank you for accepting the invitation to this August virtual cruise and for choosing to solve my puzzle :-) Double delight :-))

I like cod, too.

I am happy that you are enjoying what this virtual cruise to Alaska has to offer.

Hee, hee, Pam. I am not a travel guide though I have travelled a lot - each trip will mean a 3 months vacation. I usually travel in Spring and Autumn.

Hope to see you at the next month's party, Pam.

Happy Puzzling Smiles,
Jason.

Hello, Jason, and all of the August bday babies, and everyone celebrating this joyous month! I am so excited to be joining in this month! While I don't care for salmon or crab legs, I do love COD and have not have had fresh cod in decades when we used to go deep-sea fishing on fishing boats from the coast of Gloucester (near Boston).

The berries sound delightful, and I am curious about birch syrup! The entertainment, classes, and, of course, site-seeing also sound wonderful.

Then again, Jason, I do believe you could spin any destination into the most glorious one—you must be a travel guide in your non-jigidy, non-Covid life! LOL!

Oh! and thanks for this puzzle that I'm about to solve... I'm sure that will be fun, too! ~Pam

Hello, Iris,

It is always fun to see you at my virtual parties :-)

Thank you for helping at the buffet.

You are helping yourself to some strawberries and whipped cream. Well, why not? It is good fun. I helped myself to some, too. And then, I dipped a couple of strawberries into warm melted chocolate. May I offer one of them to you? Now a glass of champagne will finish this off very nicely. Cheers, Iris.

Strawberries and Champagne Smiles,
Jason :-)

jasonchung2

You are welcome, Ennis :-)

August Smiles,
Jason :-)

I am coming to help work the buffet for all our August friends. It will be such fun both participating in the festivities and helping out too. Of course I will be constantly sneaking tastes of the strawberries and whipped cream. LOL! This will all be great. grins!☺
