It has been quiet around here. Why? Well, I spent the last week plying the waters of Southeast Alaska exploring the towns, fjords, and glaciers of the region and learning a bit about its history and culture.
On the wargaming front, my intention was to work on a rules review while away but that goal came to naught as I was quite occupied with activities at hand. I did manage to read Theodore Roosevelt's gripping account of his exploits during the Spanish-American War in Rough Riders. What an enjoyable and fascinating read! I return rejuvenated to press on with the Span-Am project.
Before heading for home, we stopped in Victoria, Canada for one evening. One objective was to revisit Miniatures World adjacent to the magnificent Empress Hotel. I last visited Victoria and Miniatures World about 20 years ago so I was due for a memory refresher.
Miniatures World houses a display of dioramas some of which are military themed. Many of the displays were familiar and brought back fond memories of my earlier trip but new exhibits were on display as well. With battlefields in miniature, model railroad displays, miniature operating sawmills, dollhouses, and more, there is something of interest to almost everyone.
A sampling of the exhibits follow:
Normal activities resume and a Two-Year Blog Anniversary contest is in the works.
