Bury's Orchard, South Bigfork, Montana

After our 7-day Alaska Cruise trip via Seattle, Washington, hubby and I made a side trip to Montana to see the Glacier National Park. On our way there, I noticed lots of signs of Cherry Orchards along side of the road. Oh, I love Cherries! I asked my husband to pull up but he was not really sure which orchard are we gonna go until he saw an arrow sign of an orchard, it was not along side of the road and I remember we had to turn right a little ways before we saw this beautiful signage of Bury's Orchard.

 Sweet cherries!

The place is immaculate! It is not really big but they have different varieties of cherries and they also have walnuts, raspberries, plums and grapes! Hubby talked to the lady owner while I was busy picking cherries, taking photos and videos. It was overwhelming! I couldn't remember how many cherries I ate straight from the trees. And I have no idea how much per pound but my husband said it was really cheap. 

  My husband loves their 1946 Chevy farm truck

Look at the well-maintained grass, the entire yard looks like that. And that's the orchard in the other side of the truck. Everything is green and I can't take my eyes off of the cherry trees bearing incredibly beautiful fruits!

I recommend this place if you want to try Montana cherries.

Thanks for dropping at my blog.

Have a good one!

My First Cruise Experience

It was amazing and hubby and I would like to do it again!

July 20-27, 2018 with Celebrity Solstice from Seattle, Washington to 3 islands in Alaska then to Victoria, Canada then back to Seattle.

At first I was nervous to do it because I was thinking the boat will rock and it will make me dizzy and make me puke and that is not good, right? Another thing is that I was afraid I could get diarrhea because I have heard horror stories before about a cruise line which half of the passengers got food poisoning or something like that and that is a scary thing to happen.

I made sure our passports are still valid, otherwise, we cannot get into the boat. A month before the sailing or earlier than that, we've checked in online already to get a Sea Pass, it is the version of a Boarding Pass when flying. They have a no cash policy so they need the last 4 digits of my Debit card or Credit card to get a Sea Pass then I printed our luggage tags, I printed out 6 of them in a colored ink and attached one in our suit case following the how to.

Checking in on the sailing day was very smooth since we already prepared our passports, Sea Pass and the Credit card that we used when we checked-in online. The staff was with all smiles when she handed me my key card and my husband's.
Going through security was very systematic and organized so it was hassle-free. 

Before entering the boat, there were photo ops and they make sure we sanitized our hands so a staff was in the front of the gangway to gave as a spray or two of Purrel sanitizer which I thought cool and a must.

The key card the lady handed to us is like an identification card, credit card, and a room key in one. The info of the muster point in case of emergency is also found in the card and I thought it was a brilliant idea.

When the boat started sailing, we heard an announcement to head to muster point as stated on the card for safety instructions and info in case of emergency. Everyone was there because no one was exempted.

We stayed in an inside stateroom which was not bad because we did not really stay there all the time as we always go out exploring the boat. They clean the room twice a day which I thought it was too much. And every afternoon, the room attendant would leave the schedule of activities for the following day. We also get information of the activities on TV.

The boat was like a floating little city minus cars. Seriously, I was in awe! What really amazed me was when I saw the sign pointing to the Dialysis center. Someone needed Dialysis could still be on the cruise, how amazing is that!

Also, they have Casino inside the ship. It was funny because I went down to the Casino twice while the ship was docked in an island and both times it was closed. I kinda wondered. Then someone explained that the Casino is only allowed to be opened when at sea because it is not legal to open when it is docked. And I was like, "Ah.. okay, hehe!"

I took lots of photos while on the cruise. Will post them separately.
