I have not had enough time to post a blog in the last couple of weeks because I have been very busy. Busy, getting ready for, and going on an Alaskan cruise!! Judy and I just returned Friday from a week of sightseeing SE Alaska.
Judy and I boarded the Celebrity Cruise Line ship Solstice on Friday the eighth of May in Seattle. We returned this past Friday. Judy and I were joined by her sister Sheila and her husband Ron for the cruise. We had a great time. I will post more about the ship in a future post. As a career sailor, I must confess it was enjoyable to be back at sea. I was able to experience what it is like to go to sea as a Coast Guardsman. Even though at sea, we were never out of sight of land. Just kidding.
The scenery was fabulous and we took many photos. The weather was awesome, no rain and the temps reached into the sixties. I understand that we were very lucky to have weather like that. The cruise included stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway Alaska. The ship also went 23 miles into the Tracy Arm Fjord. The final port of call was Victoria, British Columbia. Judy and I took advantage of shore excursions at each stop. The excursions we went on were, The Alaskan Sea-feast and Lodge Adventure, Mendenhall Glacier and Whale watching and Wildlife Quest, Gold rush, Sled Dogs and White Pass Train Adventure, and the final excursion was a Scenic Tour of Victoria.
Below is a small sampling of the photos Judy and I took, because we recognize no one really wants to see your vacation pictures.

In future follow up post I will include more amazing pictures.
That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
