Summer Vacation

Hi Everyone!

My husband Stuart and I, along with my parents, his parents and brother & sister in-law, just returned from the best vacation ever. We went on an Alaskan cruise! I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful Alaska is, so I thought I would show you instead.

We flew to Seattle, Washington where we boarded Holland America's Westerdam. The first picture is in Glacier Bay. Then we were off to Juneau, Alaska where we went on a whale watching trip with Captain Larry (and shopping). There we saw sea lions (second picture), orca's and whales (last three pictures). The next stop was Sitka where Stuart went fishing and caught Coho Salmon (and I went shopping). Then we went to Ketchakan. Guess what we did there. That's right, more shopping! Our last stop was Victoria, British Columbia, where we did more shopping. Then it was back to Seattle where we caught a plane and flew back to Texas. If you've never been on a cruise, I can't emphasize enough how much I recommend it. The ship was beautiful and the food was wonderful! But of course, there's no place like home.

Until next time!

Hi Shabby Shan, Your cruise to Alaska looks like a blast. My sister did the Alaska cruise last year and loved it. Hope it's in my future to go on one.
