Rick and I

Here are some random pictures of Rick and I during the vacation. I must say I so enjoyed this vacation more than even going to Canada. Now everyone knows how I love my Canada but going to Alaska, not having to do anything just watch the beauty of this state was so refreshing. I am now taking sign ups of who want to go in 2011!!!!! NCL Pearl cruise to Alaska in 2011 woo hoo...anyone want to join us?

Downtown Seattle

What still amazes me to this day is the amount of homeless people in Seattle. It gets so cold there. Here in Virginia Beach I can understand it a little more as it doesn't get cold during the winter. My heart goes out to these folks. 20 years ago during my first trip to Seattle I was getting change for 20's so that everyone I saw I was able to give money too. That was my first experience seeing a homeless person. I aslo added into this collage some sights of downtown seattle.

Emerald Lake

This lake is the color of emeralds. Due to something or another I don't remember the reason but it is the most beautiful color of green.

Alaskan Sled Dogs

We actually got to see a camp for sled dogs and some sled dogs in the making. How STINKIN ADORABLE are these puppies?
They were so cute and if you could catch one you could play with it. This was in the Yukon

NCL Pearl room 9672

Here you go....this was our suite I loved it. Who would have thought you could get a king size bed on a cruise ship? We had what is called an AFT suite. Back of the boat very quiet except for the sound of the wake from the props. We would leave the balcony door open all the way just to hear the wake. I so wished I could hear that sound right now....

Outhouses take on a whole new meaning

Public Restrooms? well, in Skagway they really are public. lol
Someone had a great sense of humor when they put this smack dab in the center of their yard. We loved it and saw a picture opportunity when it happens...

Here are just a few of the pictures of Skagway. When we arrived it was early early early so we got up went into town did a little bit of shopping then went back to the boat to meet our tour guide for the day. I will post pictures of the Yukon shortly. I tell you I love this place I want to retire and move to Skagway where we hear it rains 297 days a year if not more. The tour guide said they get about 20-40 days a year without rain and guess what..... it didn't rain the entire time we were there.

Flowers of Seattle

The day we left was Mother's day and Pike's Market had all these beautiful flowers for sale... GET this TEN bucks for a large bunch of Tulips. OH my Tulips are my FAVORITE well, one of my favorite flowers. Lilacs and Peonies oh and clematis are my most favs but for cut flowers TULIPS are my fav. Rick wanted to buy me a couple of bunches but was afraid the cruise ship would not let us take them on. CRAP guess what? most women had flowers when they were boarding. Shoot....oh well. When we go to Seattle next year for another Alaskan Cruise WE WILL HAVE TULIPS in our suite.

I think well it is my personal opinion that EVERY woman should have something from Tiffany's. I would be tickled pink with a charm from Tiffany's. Well, I got to go SEE Tiffany's. It was early Sunday morning and they were not open. Thank god since I had on blue jeans, a comfy shirt and my old faithful blue hoodie. I don't think Tiffany's would appreciate my casual

Shamu she wasn't but....

She sure put on a show for us. I just had the time of my life watching these whales. I have included snapshots of the humpback whale and the oraca whale. For six hours they put on a show for us. If you ever get a chance you must take an Alaskan cruise and see this amazing place.
