A Day of Rest

A Day of Rest
Today was just what we needed. A short day at work and then a day at home resting.

What I have come to learn is that resting isn't always about doing nothing.

Sometimes resting looks like taking a nap, binge watching tv, reading a book, soaking in a bath, or sleeping all afternoon on the couch.

Port Valet In Seattle

Port Valet In Seattle
If you ever cruise out of Seattle, and are offered the opportunity to use Post Valet Services, do it. You will thank me later. 

The end of a cruise is hard enough. You have spent several marvelous days at sea, basking in the sun, eating yummy food, playing in the water, visiting different ports, maybe drinking some alcholol, eating more food, watching shows, listening to music, staying up late, possibly even gambling a little.

While at Icy Strait keep your eye open. Coastal brown bears make random appearances for some lucky visitors. Oryou may spot a humpback whale.

Ketchikan Day Exploring

Ketchikan Day Exploring
As with all the ports, there are many excursions to choose from. With Ketchikan being the Salmon Capital of the World. Being the Salmon capital of the world, it seems fitting the main attractions highlighted are salmon and seafood. Neither thing my crew is fond of. 

Again like all other ports in Alsaka we were short on time, and didn’t want to go to far. We were in port for roughly 7 hours, but by the time the ship is cleared, you don’t really have that long. Plus, who wants to wake up at 6:00 am while on vacation?
