THINKING OF OUR CRUISE

Last summer we had taken a cruise to Alaska. We started our journey in Seattle on a really beautiful day. Was not what I had thought being my first time to Seattle. I expected rainy and grey and there wan’t one cloud in the sky.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE DEDICATED MARTINI BAR

This shot was taken just shortly after boarding the Rotterdam cruise ship in August of 2010. We boarded in Seattle and headed up to Alaska for 7 days. It was a great trip with unbelievable views that you can only get from the water.

I’m not too sure what to say about this shot other than I was eager to cruise, no pun intended, around the ship before the masses engulfed the ship and cluttered every shot taken. This was a martini bar that was all set up and not a soul had touched it just yet. I was able to take my time and compose the shot without feeling rushed.

I sure hope you all are enjoying the photos I’ve posted so far.

Well, if you like what you see please comment and share with everyone. I’d love for my photos to be enjoyed by everyone.

WORKING IN THE DARK

I figured I’d get a little work done today in the afternoon. The power to the building was supposed to be out until about 2pm and when I showed up at 3:15, guess what? No Power! Fortunately I found one outlet that had power to it so I could get a bit of work done but no lighting. It’s lonely enough working here by myself, but with no lights on it’s even more so. Got my tunes going though so that makes it a bit better.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE SEATTLE SKY LINE

Last year August we went on an Alaskan cruise which left from Seattle. I took this photo after we boarded the ship and was walking around to see what the views looked like of the city before we pulled out of port. I had gone around the ship taking photos before it was inundated with swarms of people everywhere. I was able to get a few great shots. Make sure to click on this shot to see the large size. I think it came out pretty nice. Enjoy!

BICYCLING IN BOULDER

So, the other day I was driving to work and pulled up behind someone at a stop sign waiting for a chance to make their turn. I hear shouting coming from my left as a bicyclist comes flying down the side walk. He’s screaming ‘GO GO GO!’. Then when he finally gets to the intersection starts yelling at the woman in front of me that she’s pulled through the stop sign and hasn’t moved. Then threatens her that he’ll sue her for everything she’s got if she does this again. Does what again? Block the intersection because she has to inch out beyond the stop sign so she can actually see the oncoming traffic?

My thought was that he’s complaining about his woman’s driving but here he is riding his bike on a sideWALK!!! It’s not called a sideRIDE. Isn’t there some law against riding on a sidewalk and demanding walkers move out of the way? They do it all the time.

TODAY’S PHOTO – SITKA BY THE SHORE

This was a view from our cabin when we had made port in Sitka, Alaska lat year. This little island seemed to inhabited by few houses. From our view we could see many little island like this traveled heavily by many fishing boats.

THE ST. ANASTASIA PULLS UP TO SHORE

AN ISLAND OFF OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

We had made port in Juneau Alaska during our cruise and went on a boat tour around the surrounding area. We were able to see hump back whales and stellar sea lions which were fantastic to see in person.

Towards the end of our boat tour we pulled up to this small island to get up close and personal with the flora, not to mention getting a close view of a Bald Eagle up in one of the trees. We learned that taking feathers found from Bald Eagles is illegal. Probably a good thing I didn’t find one as I would have pretty tempted to not say anything.
