Slow Boat to Sitka

There are a few things to be learned from a luxury summer cruise to Alaska in 2011:
  • Cruise life is sybaritic (and should be done at least once in one's life.)
  • Alaska is a very big forested state with many islands.
  • Alaska's economy, in the small, coastal towns we visited, is anemic.
That said, some memories:
 Let's see...Vancouver, Mandatory Abandon Ship Drill,

Hubbard Glacier (in the distance), Enjoying the Verandah, Ketchikan...

 Ketchikan downtown, Sitka downtown

And, after the cruise, on the deck on Lopez Island, WA.
Nice trip. Enjoyed by us both.
(Thanks for looking.)
