Alan and Donna visited beautiful Syracuse while on a cruise excursion in Sicily. Looks like a great place to explore!

From Donna:

Are you ready for a road trip? That’s what’s on our mind. Alan and I are looking into another Alaska road trip adventure in early September. Tentative plans include a ride to Alaska and back on the Alaska Marine Highway. In between, we’ll drive the Golden Circle from Haines to Skagway. Time to buy the 2019 Milepost!
