Fred and Velvet Entwisle have returned from a seven-day cruise to Alaska, the inside passage on the Norwegian cruise line Jewel.

It was a belated honeymoon; joining them were Fred’s sister Cathy Prillar from Didsbury and Vevlvet’s sister Faye and Fritz Gramm from Salmo, B.C.

Highlights of the trip were whale-watching in Juneau, where they saw a mamma suckling her baby; feeding the seals; watching the sea lions and sightseeing in Ketchikan on a float plane.

In Skagway, they enjoyed a salmon bake and gold-panning. On the last night of their visit, they docked overnight near Victoria on Vancouver Island, before returning home via Vancouver on Sept. 22.

Velvet reports they had a fantastic time.

Betty Hadwin flew to Ontario, where she spent 16 days with her friend Ethel at St. Catharines.

While there, they motored to the tourist town of St. Jacobs, and they experienced the shopping advantages and sights.

Thelma Davits spent a few days in Stettler and area, visiting family and friends. She was on her way home from a family reunion, on her mother’s side of the family.
