I wanted to share a few of the places that we stopped at and some things I thought were kinda cool when we were there.
This is Ketchikan, and I loved the Salmon Market sign…
…right next to the big jewelry sign. I swear every other store was jewelry.
And the splash, I didn't get any good shots of whales as we just watched off our balcony and it was really hit or miss, after a while I stopped trying to take pictures and just enjoyed watching the bits and pieces of them. We did see one come half way up and that might be the splash picture. We also saw one at lunch one day.
Glaciers in the distance in Tracy Arm Fjord.
It was a little nippy out so we were all bundled up and drinking hot cocoa.
I loved this shot, two trees off in the distance, I have this as my wallpaper on my precious now, I am pretending I can see Edward and Bella on top of the trees. Yeah I know, get a life.
Iceburgs, look at that gorgeous blue color. The ship had to steer around all of them, and I guess they got closer to the glaciers then other times.
In Juneau Alaska you might need a fur lined bikini…wonder if they were selling the body to put in it?
An interesting building in Skagway, funny what you can do with drift wood and sticky strip.
Ya know if you're gonna murder a poor innocent creature, don't just mount the head, try not to be wasteful and use the whole thing. I didn't go around to see if the head was on the other side. It was kinda "dear" it was $250.00.
If you can't pay your bar tab…out ya go. Head over heels.
Jeff in Skagway, while we were waiting for the Skagway Fish Co to open, we wanted crab legs…bad!
I think this was what they dug tunnels with for the railroad…or if you're really bunged up and need some help.
Statue in Victoria – 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Navy
I loved this, it was painted on a building in Victoria
Parliament building in Victoria
The Three Muskateers and an Oh Henry
That should do it for today for pictures, I will share more tomorrow. I worked on thank you cards for my May on-line orders today, there is still a couple of days to get yours. My store is open 24-7 for all your Stampin' Up! products.
Oh and I forgot to tell you, Jeff found my missing box of supplies. I asked if he would drive up and down the road as a couple years ago we had a temp driver and he dropped my box at the wrong house, so Jeff went to that house and asked the girl and she said no, but then Jeff looked across the street at a vacant house and there sat a SU! box, he went over and it was mine. It sat there for 5 days! Yeah when UPS calls me Tuesday you can bet I will be complaining, if the address does not match I don't think they should be leaving the box there. Luckily we did not have any rain while we were gone and everything was fine. Whew!

Those pics are fantastic. DH and I someday will take a cruise there. You didn't buy a fur lined bikini? I thought everyone needed one of those. Hee hee Thanks for sharing all the fun. Give UPS a piece of your mind although they really won't care. They ruined one of DH very expensive guns while shipping it and didn't do a thing about it. They were nice on the phone but nicely said well that is why you get insurance.

Enjoyed catching up on all your posts and pics from your cruise. Such fun you and Jeff had. Hope you post more pics. I'm waiting patiently to get my new catty. NOT!
So glad you found your SU delivery. whew!! Di, you are so funny! I loved the comments under your photos. Especially the Three Muskateers and an O'Henry!! ha

Beautiful photos. I loved Victoria, didn't you. We were there when Parliment was in session for the first day and the Prime Minister walked down those stairs and greeted people. So exciting.

I loved Victoria I went there a few years ago to see a hockey game. Our Idaho Steelheads were playing the Victoria Salmon Kings and I saw that same whale painting on the side of the building and I stayed at the Fairmont Empress…. Looks like you had a blast.

My Alaskan cruise went to Tracy Arm Fjord, too. We didn't get nearly that close to the glacier. WOW! Awesome pics! I'm looking forward to seeing more. Didn't you just love all the icebergs? Did you hear what they call the small ones – "bergie bits?"
I got tired of all the jewelry shops…they're not any fun when you can't really shop in them. HA!
Glad you found your supplies, too!!

Love the pictures of your trip. I would love to take the same trip someday!
Stef Perry says
Very cool pictures, thank you for sharing. I really want to go on the Inner Passage cruise one day and your photos just wet my appetite for it!
