DAY 11 - Sailing towards Vancouver

Cruising Day
June 4, 2011

Sailing towards Vancouver and enjoying the sun - mom always has knitting nearby! . Bittersweet day as we really didn't want to leave, however we all agreed this was a trip of a lifetime!

non stop beauty the entire trip

the wait staff treated us to Indonesian Tea on our last day..can't get over how wonderful every employee we came in contact with. We were treated like special guests every single day ( something i got used to pretty quickly ) and the staff always had a smile for us. It was a special trip for so many reasons but being able to experience Alaska with 3 very special people to me made it that much more memorable.

I brought my mini-fuji polaroid to the tea and the waiters had a blast with me taking pix!

Experience of a lifetime!

Day 10 -Ketchikan - Misty Fjords - Pt. II

Our Pilot

thank you for such an awesome ride. We landed in the middle of a Fjord and asked if we wanted to get out !! - -getting out meant, very carefully climbing down the open stairs and standing on the float which the plane lands on ...Scary but so exhilarating....

The views was incredible from this vantage point as well.

and back up we are

and we are back on land ! -- you did it MOM!!!
on the way back to the boat ... you do you think we run into again! - and even though we just went flying - we still didnt see Russia!
