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!
