Even before we moved back to Bowling Green on June 1, Steve and I talked about taking a vacation once we got back. After spending a couple of weeks playing with grandbabies, enjoying being with our children and visiting with friends, we were ready to do it!
And we didn’t wait long…I started looking online at Alaskan cruises one week and we were there the next week! The good thing about our last-minute cruise was: we got a good deal on the cruise…with a balcony stateroom. The bad thing about our last-minute cruise was: we did not get a good deal on our flight to Seattle! Oh well…
We spent 2 days in Seattle and then on June 20, we boarded the Norwegian Star and began our adventure along Alaska’s Inside Passage. Ketchikan, Juneau, Dawes Glacier, Skagway and Prince Rupert, B.C., Canada. So, here are some pictures:
Hanging Peppers from Choice Produce & Peppers at Pike’s Market

This is Seattle Grace Hospital from “Gray’s Anatomy”…Only it isn’t even a hospital! It’s Channel 4 News!
Somewhere between Ketchikan and Juneau
The Governor’s House (The big one in the middle)

Somewhere between the glacier and Skagway
My favorite—A Quilt Shop!
Prince Rupert, B.C., Canada
The Norwegian Star (our cruise ship)
Our little housekeeping guys made this cute monkey out of hand towels and a wash cloth and hung it in our bathroom our last day on the ship! The eyes are Andes mints.
This is the pretty atrium…looking down from an elevator. It was a beautiful ship!
