Suck the Marrow Spring 2018 Trip, Foodie Edition

It's Yummy Monday! Today we're talking about the best things we ate on our Alaska/Washington/Oregon/Canada road trip and cruise.

With our health and mobility issues it is imperative that we make the most of each day we have. So each time we go away we adhere to my tattoo, a quote from Henry David Thoreau.

"Live deep and suck out all the marrow of life."

Between May 5 and June 4 of this year we:
  • Took three cruises
  • Rented two cars
  • Stayed in 12 different hotels
  • Visited four National Parks
  • Spent time in two countries
  • Traveled to four states
  • Traveled by plane, ship, converted school bus and converted prison bus, double decker bus, coach, train, taxi, car, and shuttle.
  • Went to two Major League Baseball games
  • Won $1279.07 on a penny slot machine
Yeah, we sucked the marrow. But when we take these kinds of trips the same question comes up, a question that is hard to answer. 

What was your favorite part?

Instead of favorites, today I'm going with the best foods we had.

Best Breakfast - Razzy Cinnamon Rolls at the Talkeetna Roadhouse in Talkeetna, Alaska.
