A Word from Connie

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are well and getting ready to embrace the last months of the year 2020. We have a few day trips and local outings that we hope take place since so many other adventures have been postponed or canceled. I have even included a holiday performance to consider. I know, I can’t believe it either!

However, lets not pass over September too quickly because this is a very exciting month for me. My daughter is getting married. The first one of my children to “tie the knot.” Have you ever wondered why we use the phrase “tie the knot” or where it originated from? Me too, so I took a look. One explanation is that knots were used in many cultures to symbolize unbreakable pledges and have been associated with marriages since the 13th Century. Hmmm, I like that! The second explanation I found was that in the Renaissance era when a couple felt that they were ready to get married, they prepared a marriage contract. Then they tied their hands together for one year and one day and only after accomplishing this could they be married, if they still wanted to. I giggle out loud when I think about how that would work for today’s couples. That is taking togetherness to a whole new level.

It is very interesting to witness what is happening with the various viewpoints of whether the wedding should be postponed or celebrated as planned. The wedding party, family, friends and many others have weighed in on their feelings, all while our bride and groom-to-be tried desperately to make the most respectful decision. A crystal ball and a fairy godmother were their only hope. When I first started this job people kept telling me, just remember you cannot please everyone. This may be one of those situations.

We are experiencing much of the same in the travel industry. We work through every adventure and run down the checklist of important things to keep everyone safe. We view the situation from several angles. We social distance and wear masks. We also look for alternatives for the individuals who can’t wear a mask for one reason or another. Please know that your safety is very important to us. Thank you for your patience and kindness as we have postponed many planned activities but all with your best interest at [heart].

What is next? We have a lot to look forward to. You may have a deja vu moment when you look though this Journal because we have a couple of our postponed trips available again for 2021. We have new opportunities too, so please take a look and call me soon.
