North to Alaska

My husband and I went on our very first cruise this summer and from the moment we sailed out of Vancouver, we fell in love with cruising!

Juneau was our first stop. Here's a shot of the state capital building.

At Skagway we took the train to White Pass and I snapped this photo of an abandoned train trestle.

And in the afternoon I went on a horseback riding adventure. This is me on Liberty at the Dyea flats.

We had a perfect day in Glacier Bay...

...and then it was on to our last stop in Ketchican.

One evening I even got to be part of the entertainment as a participant in a game show. They were looking for people with "interesting or unusual occupations" and apparently I fit the bill.

You'll have to forgive the person who made the PowerPoint slide for not knowing how to spell Harlequin! The panel of three on-board celebrities was completely stumped until the moderator let the audience give them some clues. "She gets to work at home in her bunny slippers" and "think Fabio." LOL.

A week didn't seem long enough, and before I knew it I was back home and hard at work on my next book.

Happy reading!

Great photos and sounds like a wonderful vacation. I'd really enjoy a cruise if it wasn't on water. I can barely stand taking the ferry to Victoria.
Looking forward to your Dec release date... Can't wait.

LOL, Linda! I would probably enjoy flying if it wasn't in the the air ;)

I hope you enjoy The Daddy Project!
