Time to enjoy the last day on the ship while cruising the scenic Inside Passage – and watching whales, well at least one whale.
A short visit to Ketchikan Alaska and the northern lights at sea at night.
Chasing rainbows in Skagway, Alaska. Well didn’t need to chase too hard, they just appeared. And a bear as well.
A spectacular day cruising the breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord. It couldn’t get much better with large chunks of ice floating, turquoise water and wispy clouds clinging to the side of the fjord. Oh and we also visited Juneau, the capital of Alaska.
Enjoying nature in Icy Strait Point
Almost another visit to Hubbard Glacier, Alaska. It turned into a visit to a fog bank.
A soggy and foggy day in Seward, Alaska. The end of the first cruise, but the beginning of the second.
Amazing views of Hubbard Glacier, in Alaska
A spectacular day cruising in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. Beautiful mountains and glaciers.
Two trips up the Klondike Highway to Canada on a scenic summit drive from Skagway, Alaska. Waterfalls, mountains and glaciers surround the city.
A beautiful day in Juneau, Alaska. A little hiking on top of Mount Roberts and a scenic tram (gondola) ride.
Ketchikan, Alaska, Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My… well there were Bears and Salmon, no Lions or Tigers in Alaska (unless Mike Tyson moved here from Vegas)
Today was supposed to be scenic cruising of the inside passage, but the ship passed most of the scenic part at night. It was still a nice sea day and a chance to relax.
A double shift at the happiest place on earth.
Queens, Rockefeller Center, New York Public Library and my flight back to Houston
The last full day in New York City. I visited the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
A trip on the Staten Island Ferry and a bit of exploration of the World Trade Center memorial, Chinatown, Little Italy and Broadway.
A full day in New York City. Today I visited St Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park, the Guggenheim museum, Roosevelt Island and Grand Central Terminal.
First day of a long weekend trip to New York City. The day started early in the morning with a direct flight to Newark, NJ. I used the nice weather as an opportunity to explore some of the outdoor spaces in NYC – the High Line, the Vessel, Brooklyn Bridge and Times Square.
Flight to Miami and an afternoon in South Beach
