Post Alaska

After a very busy week or two we are back from our Alaska cruise & coming back down to earth after being pampered on the trip.We have a multitude of pictures which I will place on my webshots, I have some up there already but it's slow going to upload them. I am convinced this is the best way to see Alaska, as I am not a big backwoods adventurer & don't like the cold weather. Crisp, cool is fine but not frigid. It rained almost every day we were away, even the 4 days in Seattle but the sun did shine for our sailing from Seattle.
I had not spent any time in that city before but I like it a lot. Pike's Market is amazing & we had an interesting visit to the Space Needle & lunch at the top, then we toured the Science Fiction Museum. The flowers & gardens in Seattle are lush, colorful & spectacular & we had a great day on our friend's beautiful 41ft. yatch sightseeing around the harbor.
Haven't blogged for nearly 3 weeks, lack of internet access plus the Alaska adventure have kept me away from the internet.
We have so many spectacular memories & photos of the great state of Alaska that it's hard to choose, but the rainforest in Juneau, the glaciers & the Misty Fiords stand out. Seeing salmon spawning was mind boggling, so many fish that the water was 'boiling' with them, & watching a 13 week old Bald Eagle fledge from the nest for the first time, wow! I'm posting them on my webshots bit by bit if you'd like to see some of this wonderful state from the view through my camera lens!
I'll post a couple of pics of my quilting progress in the next week-I have another QOV finished off & I'm still working on the applique baby quilt getting it ready to quilt this weekend.

I am glad that you enjoyed your visit to Seattle, it's a lovely city. I am only a short drive away, and it's nice to be so close to a city like that, but still live in a small town with big trees and a GREAT quilt shop.
