So…..I have been away on vacation – an Alaskan Cruise, to be exact! I returned late Weds night and just now picked one specific photo that was taken each day of the cruise to highlight as my “Photo of the Day” each day. They aren’t necessarily the BEST photo of the day, but one I thought was fun or showcased the day without taking away from the anticipation of my upcoming blog post devoted to the trip that will be posted in the next couple of days…..as soon as I finish sorting through the more than 1000 photos I took of some of the most gorgeous scenery and fabulous adventures EVER!!! It was a great trip……but, this post is not about that – it is about finishing out the month of June for my 2016 Daily Photo Challenge!
We followed another cruise ship out of the harbor in Vancouver, British Columbia as we set sail toward the Great North!
“Beer Tasting At Sea”
On our first day at sea along the Inside Passage, I took part in a hilariously fun Beer Tasting Event on the Lido Deck! All the beers offered were from the Alaskan Brewing Co in Juneau, Alaska. Three were VERY good (# 1, 2, and 4), one I liked, but didn’t love (# 6), and two were awful (# 3 and 5) – they tasted like soap, to me! hehehe
“Sea Lions in Juneau”
During a whale watching tour in Juneau, we saw a group of sea lions playing just off from our boat – they were quite animated and acted like they really wanted us to notice them and take their photos! 🙂
“Switching Cars in the Yukon”
We took a fantastic train ride from Skagway into the Yukon. When we reached the end of the ride, the crew had to disengage the engine, switch it to the other track, and drive it to the other end of the train to reconnect it and take us in the reverse direction back to Skagway. It made for a cool photo op!
“Seagull in Glacier Bay”
A foggy day, lots of huge seagulls, and a breathtakingly beautiful glacier…..what more do you want for the perfect photo?
“Red Light District in Ketchikan”
Self explanatory, right? Of course, it is good clean fun, now, but back in the gold rush days, this was where the men would go to (ahem) relax after a long day of mining for gold!
“Last Day At Sea”
A gorgeous day at sea along the Inside Passage on our return to Vancouver!
We pulled in to Vancouver early with everything packed and were in airports and on planes all day until our arrival back in Rochester around 9:30-ish pm. So, no photos were taken!
Remember when I posted one of my two daisy bushes before I went on vacation? It was partially opened and the second wasn’t opened at all. Well, I got back and they are both fully opened and amazing!!!
