DAY 1 ....SEATTLE AND SAIL AWAY



Grab your beverage of choice, sit back and relax. This is my take on Seattle. You would never guess what interests me....food, food and flowers. They just make me happy! Click to enlarge.

My favorite place to hang out as long as it is not the weekend...too crowded



Bet you didn't know Halibut had cheeks, did you? Check it out at:


More crab later in British Columbia
I forgot my camera the day I went to the Lavender Farms. Multiply this lavender many hundreds of times

$15.
The last of the local Peonies



The first Starbucks

The Norwegian Star in port in Seattle


This is an upgrade, folks! Much bigger than we have had in the past.

Bye Seattle, see you in a week. ( Yes, that really is me)
Told you the decor was gaudy. Floating Vegas, Baby.



Tomorrow we will visit Historic Ketchican Alaska

  2. Oh my gosh, I lived in Seattle for years! This was such a treat (I haven't been back since I moved). It's a wonderful city. I've never been on a cruise. That ship is something else! Have a wonderful time!

  5. Floating Vegas indeed! I thought the same thing on our cruise. The flowers, oh.the.flowers. Could you believe how cheap they were? I filled my brothers house for $30.00! And the green, that's it, next year a road trip. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Oh you just brought me back to my trip from last year. I went on Sept 2nd! I loved every minute of my trip.

    I went on Holland America and the ship looks so much different. Very much down played I guess. More woods and classy designs. The rooms were much bigger too.

    I can't wait to go on Roayal Caribbean in a few weeks to see the difference. I've only been on HAL cruises.

    Looking forward to your other posts about your trip.

    Hugs,
    Joanne

  13. The majority of clinical care should still be provided on an individual cialis dosage 15mg, patient specific basis. The ingredients in this have been precisely balanced to complement each other and produce positive results in a basically short time.
