Seattle to Alaska

Saturday we set sail on Holland America's Westerdam for Juneau Alaska.

The view of Seattle from the vantage point of the ship was excellent.



I am pretty sure I could have lived in Seattle, except for the fact that Mark would be unlikely to join me. He is way more of a tropical traveler.

The ride was gentle and bonine kept me feeling ok although I hear there were many sick from the ocean swell, I thankfully did just fine.

Our dining table is in the aft window of the ship which affords a really stellar view.

Day one at sea was day one of the Dancing light class and given the caliber of beader on board I suspect there are going to be many done by weeks end.

Day two we arrived mid day in Juneau and Mark and I opted for bike and brew. We rode bikes ten miles along bike trails stopping first at a lake across from the glacier and then at the glacier.

Here's my sweetie looking adorable in his biking and rain gear...yes it did rain.







The ice formations were interesting and blue....an ever changing sculpture garden.

A strong storm with hurricane force winds has changed our plans from a day at Hubbard glacier to a nearby and more protected bay. I'm onboard with that change. We'll be beading and then in my free afternoon I'll be beading. Finishing up a second dream keeper in fuchsia and dorado.....it's a good one.


Internet will not be available again for a couple of days so bead well and see you Wednesday!
