Home Again Home Again

HOME!! Today we landed back in Seattle. While it was an awesome trip, Scott and I were both glad to be making our way back to Dallas. See how tired we look? Well, Scott looks a little doped up, but I think that’s cuz he’s tired. :) See, that’s why writing the blog is so great. I can say what I want!! When I asked Scott if he had anything to add to the blog, […]

Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria, British Columbia

VICTORIA!!After being on ship most of the day, we docked in Victoria around 6:30 pm. I was so excited for this port because I’ve never been to the Western part of Canada and it was Scott’s first time to Canada (well, except our Skagway/Yukon trip). When we docked, we hurried off ship since the sun was setting and took a bus ($6 roundtrip per person) to the downtown area. Driving through the parks with all […]

Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan, Alaska

KETCHIKAN!! Unfortunately we only spent a few hours in Ketchikan, but once again the town is pretty compact so we made our way around on foot. We were warned that it would rain in Ketchikan, so we were prepared with rainsuits. When we got off the ship, though, it wasn’t raining!! It was overcast outside…which we were growing pretty accustomed to, but yeah!! No Rain!! The first place we headed for in Ketchikan was Creek […]

Tracy Arm, Alaska; Scenic Cruising

Tracy Arm, Alaska; Scenic Cruising

Tracy Arm!! Today we were at sea, but in the morning we sailed into Tracy Arm where the Sawyer Glaciers are. We overslept a little (which is weird because every other morning we’ve been up at 6:00 am), but I think we got up in time to see the best part. The picture to the left is a peek at one of the glaciers. We were able to cruise fairly close, but because we were […]

Skagway, Alaska; Yukon, Canada

Skagway, Alaska; Yukon, Canada

SKAGWAY!! Today was the day of our first and only “real” excursion. We decided to take a bus tour up the Yukon Highway to…Yukon, Canada. The weather was rainy and crappy – a real disappointment after having such a gorgeous day in Juneau, but what can you do? The tour started with downtown Skagway, which is tiny. The tour guide (who rocked!!) explained that about 700 people actually live in Skagway. During the summer the […]

Juneau, Alaska; Mendenhall Glacier

Juneau, Alaska; Mendenhall Glacier

JUNEAU!! Today we hit our first port in Alaska – Juneau. Some things about this beautiful city: it is the capital of Alaska; it is only accessible by sea/air; the population is 50,000. The city is nestled in between huge mountains and sits right on the water. The weather was gorgeous (high 50s, low 60s?), so we decided to make our way to Mendenhall Glacier about 10 miles outside of town. We took a bus […]

Cruising Day 1 – Alaska Here We Come

Cruising Day 1 – Alaska Here We Come

Today was our first day cruising. I was a little nervous because I was so stinkin’ sick on our Caribbean cruise and really didn’t want to spend all of our on-ship time in the room. I did very well, though, so I’m thinking I was only sick then because of my horrible sunburn (when, oh when will I learn!!). After missing dinner in the dining room last night, I was determined not to miss breakfast. […]

Leaving on a Jet Plane – Alaska 2007

Leaving on a Jet Plane – Alaska 2007

Alaska here we come!! The morning came very early today as we woke up around 4:30 to catch our 7:30 flight out of Love for Seattle, Washington. I kept asking Scott on the way to the airport if he was excited and all I got was a tiny whooo. By the time we got to the airport, though, he was feeling much more in the spirit and barely even rolled his eyes when I asked […]

In the beginning

In the beginning

 Scott and Trish – Taos, NM August 2007 More like in medias res. I am notoriously bad about journaling–apparently except when it comes to books. Every trip that Scott and I have taken, I’ve attempted to journal (the old-fashioned way with a pen and paper), but every time it just doesn’t work. We’ve taken some pretty amazing trips: Tahoe and San Francisco; Caribbean Cruise; Texas Hill Country–yayaya; our western excursion through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, […]
