Alaska

Late last month we joined Samantha, Jake and George in Vancouver to embark on a 7-day Alaskan Cruise. Jake reserved the Penthouse of the Celebrity Millennium.
It was pretty fancy.


From Vancouver we went through the Inside Passage to Ketchikan, then to Hoonah (Icy Strait Point), then to Juneau (with a side trip to the Mendenhall Glacier), then to Skagway, then to a boat-side viewing of the Hubbard Glacier and then to Seward. From Seward we took a magnificent 4 hour train ride to Anchorage to catch our flight home.

As always, George ran the show. He cheerfully dressed for dinner

but insisted on checking his messages during appetizers.

He soaked up the hot tub
and loved his family time in the pool.

He rode the swing in Skagway
but skipped riding the World's Largest Ziprider in Icy Strait Point.


George was bored by the massive and thunderous Hubbard Glacier ... 
carefully explored the wonders of the The Alaskan Sea Life Center in Seward ...
but chose to sleep through most of the scenic train ride from Seward to Anchorage.

A giant Alaska-sized "thank you" to Samantha, Jake and George for allowing us to join them on this amazing northwest adventure.
Cool shoes, George.
