This is the last Alaska post.
When we got to Juneau, we woke up to airplanes. Right outside our deck was the water landing strip.
Steve took the following pictures.
That cruise ship in the background will be the ship a MOMS Club buddy will be on in a few weeks from when we saw it.
Our lunch at the Red Dog Saloon. Our only regret in Juneau was that we didn't plan out our day better. Steve's back and knee injury caught up to him here. We ended up back on the ship so he could take it easy.
When we go back, we will make better use of our time here. But we still had a blast. My favorite Alaskan beer turned out to be Alaskan White. Yummmm
Our evening buddy. A frog. His eyes are made of the chocolate they leave on our pillows.
After a good night sleep, we where ready for Skagway. We opted not to take the train. Steve is less then thrilled to take train rides while on vacation. We took the smaller van tour. He stopped and let us out to check out the sights. This guy really knew what he was talking about. I love when you leave a tour, you really feel like you know the area.
We all stopped at the Welcome to Alaska sign. Yes, Doreen and I have matching jackets. We got a great deal on them. Kelli has one to but she didn't wear hers. Actually, most of the ladies on the ship at them.
I am actually standing on the edge of a cliff. Something I wouldn't normally do.
Our last formal night, we took advantage of the fact that we were all together and sang happy birthday to Doreen. We were two weeks early but oh well.
Steve's favorite thing about this ship. This tree. He commented on it every time we got in the elevator. You can't really appreciate just how big this thing is. It is several stories tall and it is suspended in the air. It is very cool.
Just a picture of the grand stairway. At night there is a band and dancing. Over looking is Steve's coffee shop. Yes he had his coffee.
Standing at the back of the ship, watching the sun set.
Our last nights little buddy. In my cousins room the monkey was hanging over his bed. Craig crawled into bed and fell asleep. The next morning he woke up with brown sticky gooo in his hair. Craig thought the monkey left him a treat on his pillow, but as he woke up realized he had fallen asleep on his pillow chocolate.
It was my turn to be tired when we got to Victoria. Steve and I had both been there so I wasn't that excited. This picture is more of an inside joke between Steve and I.
Since we had already seen much of these sights, we spent a lot of time just being silly and having fun. We did take a tour on a double decker bus.
I just liked this store.
Liked this Dollar Tree sign because of the Canadian leaf. It doesn't take much to amuse me.
We would do this trip again in a heart beat. We wouldn't trade anything on the ship, it was truly amazing. We would do some of the excursions a little bit different. We laughed a lot and enjoyed the family. We are already planning the next one.
This picture is completely unedited. This is exactly what the sunset looked like. Simply Amazing.
