Alaskan Cruise

August 11th to 19th we went on an Alaskan Princess cruise with mother,, Tawnia, Val, Gordon, Matt,  Michelle,and Mark and Sue Orme. We went to Juneau, Skagway, Ketchican, and Tracy arm and Victoria Island. We went whale watching and saw the bubbling feeding of about 15 whales. Then we took a bus tour to see Mendenhall Glacier and go on a nature hike. We saw a porcupine in a tree! In Ketchican we went touring with Tawnia's adoptive family and then watched the Lumberjack Show. In Skagway we drove up to the Continental Divide, and saw the area where the Alakan gold rush began. Then we shopped. On Tracy Arm we cruised and looked at the glacier and all the beautiful fragments floating in the water. The colors were so beautiful!  It was cold! On Victoria Island we got pedi cabs and toured the island. Very fun!  Not to mention lots of Racehorse Rummy with famil and friends and food!

Caribbean Cruise on Liberty of the Seas

San Juan, Puerto Rico was so historical. We visited one of the oldest and largest fort systems in the world. The water was so blue! There were really old cemetaries right by the fort along the beach cliffs too.
Ron had a little mishap on his scooter in St Maarten. We met Therry, a great French guy that took us to the hospital, and then we took him to lunch at Loo Loo's! What a day!

We hired a lady taxi driver to take us around St Thomas after we had visited Turtle Bay on St John. Here is the veiw from the top! This is the life!

Cruise with the Crazy Canadians!

Our cruise went to St Thomas, St Maarten, San Juan & Labadee, Haiti. There were about 9 couples. It was great fun! Here are several of us hot tubbing!
We stepped on the beach for a photo op in Key West! We also visited the "Southern most " tip of the USA, 90 miles from Cuba!
