I liked taking these framed shots from the promenade deck.
I'm actually in our cabin, taking a picture of the Glacier. I came in to get something and took a few shots from inside. Good view we had eh?
Goodbye Glacier Bay
Another great couple we met and enjoyed on the cruise. This is Vic, Bruna Tom and me. Where did my teeth go..looks like I have none in the shadows!! Vic and Bruna were a few cabins down from us, so they were often out on the back deck watching the view with us. They live in Vancouver, so we hope to see more of them soon.
Above, the Casino, taken on a day while in port when it and all the stores on the ship close. I gambled twice on the 1 cent machines. In it went and game over! I hate gambling! The slots are on the other side of the pole.
Above is a picture of a picture that hung in the hallways. Tom worked in the engine room of a ship during WWII at the age of 15! Everytime we'd go by, he'd say "there's little Tommy",meaning the guy second from the right, at the bottom of picture. We were on the Zaandam twice now and in the very same hallway, so we've looked at that picture, with me hearing the same comment dozens and dozens of times. So, I took a picture in case we were to see it again.
The OLD BEAN, as my cousin Dorothy calls me!
Above was the Red Dog Saloon. Like stepping into another world. A sawdust floor, packed with people, stuffed animals everywhere, a piano player tinkling tunes, a wall full of business cards and another bear chasing a miner up a pole. A few naughty pictures of naked ladies and just a place that is fun and has a ton of atmosphere!
Which ones the moose??
Tom and Linda having a great time, and Joan and Tom having a spin on the dance floor.
Ketchikan, built on pilings
Found myself a new boyfriend!!
Also, another one!! This is Reg from the Lido, that was always so friendly and terribly cute!
Lucky gets some time off and we take him for lunch in Ketchikan. He's a sweetie!
Lucky has his own show on board, showing how to make the delightful little animals we find when returning to our room each night. Always something different and so very cute! At the very end of my Alaska blogs, I will add a movie I took of him doing an elephant. So much fun!
Our home away from home...The Holland America ship 'The Zaandam"
We are leaving Ketchikan here, and all the other ships have left except one, which will trail behind us on the way back to Vancouver. The streets are nearly empty and we are ready to roll! Here they untie us to be on our way.
Heading into the narrows from Ketchikan heading south.
WEll, we are on our way home. I took over 700 photo's and it was fun sharing them with you. The next blog and the last will be our journey to Vancouver. Stay Tuned!!
