Alaska!

It's my intent to do a full write up, but I don't have time yet. So here are some of the pictures!


View of Seattle from our ship.


Mt. Rainier outside Seattle.


Lounging outside watching Glacier Bay go by


The ice that had broken off in Glacier Bay


On the bow of the ship watching Glacier Bay. It was chilly!

"Lady Baltimore" in captivity on the top of Mt. Roberts. She was shot in the beak and it blinded her in the left eye.


Our ship, the Westerdam

Ketchikan



In Ketchikan. We had to get this picture for Maggie!


They are hanging out the second floor window. These dogs were cracking us up.

Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pictures! I've never been on a cruise and would like to, but I worry about motion sickness. I guess it depends on the weather and whatnot, but I worry about that. The one picture of the tramway freaked me out! How did you make it to the top? The view at the top is breathtaking but I don't know if I could ride one of those things! That's so great that you were able to take such a gorgeous cruise for your anniversary!

Oh! Victoria! I didn't know you guys ended up there too-that is by far our favorite city.

Looks like you had an awesome week-so happy for you guys :)

Awesome pictures! Congrats on 10 years! So glad ya'll got away for some Jenny and Andrew time! Tell Andrew I like that picture too, and love the one of you both dressed up, you can really see those beautiful blue Allie eyes, and you missy look pretty darn skinny to me! Hugs from Fort Worth! P.S. what did Maggie say when she saw you and that big o'le bear?

Isn't that fun! I went on the same cruise, same ship, two summers ago. I live in WA state and love the northwest beauty. I am from Dallas originally and that is where I first read about your blog several years ago and have been reading it ever since. I will be heading to Dallas for a visit but sorry to say it will be very hot there and cooler here!! Why do I always visit Texas in the summer??? Glad you had a great cruise and enjoyed it up here. Maggie is such a pretty little girl and seems so happy all the time. You have done a great parenting job with her! Enjoy your blog.

I love your pictures - it looks like you had a great time - I really liked your pictures of Victoria - that is where I live and I love it here. I'm sure Maggie was excited when you arrived home! Happy Anniversary!

Looks beautiful!

We are heading to Seattle in a couple of weeks. We're going to do a daytrip up to Victoria while we're there. Can't wait.

The picture looking from the tram down to the cruise ship made my stomach lurch and i'm not even scared of heights;) WOW!! So cool!

Adrianne said...

Those pictures are AMAZING! I want to take an Alaskan cruise so badly! My father in law and his soon to be new wife are for their honeymoon in August and I am super jealous! Thank you for the indulgence! You totally deserved this! My 10 anniversary is in 2 years. Maybe then!!

Looks like you had a wonderful trip, and look forward to seeing more!

Gayle said...

Beautiful pictures Jenny! Looks like a trip that was well deserved and thoroughly enjoyed! Thanks for sharing.

Tamara said...

We leave to go cruising Alaska in a little over a week -- just got finished looking at excursions last night. These pics are getting me super excited! Any suggestions as to see or not to see? We are in several of your ports your pics were of. We just start in Seward and travel south to Victoria.

What beautiful pictures - and what wonderful memories you and Andrew will have! Looks like you had a great time. :)

Veronica said...

Amazing pics..thanks for sharing and glad you had a great time!

Jenny said...

Tamara--if you are going to Sitka--You MUST do the Ocean Raft of the Volcano Coast. Absolute coolest thing we've ever done. Loved every minute of it. And if you're feeling adventurous--snorkel!
