Lots of folks watching Seattle go by on a beautiful day. And yes I was standing on the railing...
Stuart taking pictures
Mt Rainier and "Sodo" over the roof of the boat.
Blue sky and ship gizmos. Cool!
Olympic mountains over Bainbridge Island.
Cascade mountains over Whidbey island. I think this is the air force base in the foreground?
Gordon settled in to the room.
And then checking out the string trio in the bar.
Reproduction of Phil and Mary's wedding cake for their 50th anniversary, complete with a picture of the original.
And a re-enactment of the cake cutting, 50 years on!
Swingin' in Juneau. I loved how the snow fields stacked up right behind town. The street of houses in the background was very cute.
"Crabby" the gold panning instructor certainly looked the part.
Holy cow... It worked! We're rich!?
Lars got a cozy new Husky in Juneau.
Next up, a helicopter to dog sledding camp. Lars looked way cool in his life jacket and headphones.
Dog camp, on a glacier the size of Rhode Island up over Juneau. The big tents to the left are for the mushers, the little bumps on the right are dog houses. And the lines are dog sledding tracks.
Cool to see how the snow flowed down the hills as the glacier moved.
Very cool flight to sledding camp. You can see a couple of other helicopters ahead.
Lars got to drive one sled.
Now that's a cool looking motor...
Lars driving as we went along.
Cool to see the other sleds as we went into the shadows from the hills.
Lars petting the lead dog.
Evening in Juneau.
Looking at glaciers from the bow of the ship.
Susan and the kids watching the glaciers roll by.
it was so cool how the mountains rose right from the sea.
Big glacier and lots of tiny icebergs. Very pretty!
Bow wave from the boat in the green water.
Gordon brought his violin (and a guitar) and did lots of practicing.
Pretty Russian church in Sitka.
Downtown Sitka totem pole.
The lighthouse is a B&B that you can rent. Way, way cute.
