Watery Wednesday & Wordless Wednesday - Alaska Cruising - September 29, 2010

I am participating in Watery Wednesday and Wordless Wednesday - join in the fun.


  1. The trail is so long to be erased.

  2. WOW! Carmen, those photos could well be from the pages of a Ketchikan Tourist Brochure. Yours are ALWAYS excellent!

    May we expect a couple photos with 'snow' tomorrow? Some of us never experience that, you know--happy grin!

    Thanks for all you give to us here.

  3. See, this is why I need to visit there! So lovely.

  4. Hiya Carmen,
    Can't get past that terrific header picture.
    What a coast line and with those flowers nearby.

  5. It looks lovely up there!! But it looks cold, even when it is presumably summer!

  6. Such a beautiful place. loved these shots!

    Thanks for visiting me today....Alaska is quite different from Malaysia!

    Well, the cruise ships have already headed south from Alaska so the big tourist season is over for another year.

    I've done two Alaska cruises but haven't been able to afford any of the rail tours. That would be really nice, I think. It is truly beautiful there.

    I am so blessed to live right near that spot on my header. The coastline near San Francisco is breathtaking.

    I visited on the Radiance of the Seas when it overnighted here on its way south from Alaska and they said the last couple of weeks, the temperatures were in the 90's!

    I wonder if the hill country of India might look like that?

    The scenery is quite different from your lovely islands...both are equally beautiful in their own way!

    It is so beautiful in Alaska. I've enjoyed my two cruises there...would like to spend some time on land there but it is so darn expensive.

    Alaska is so beautiful and the wildlife is extraordinary!

    Alaska can leave one wordless - and breathless!

    It is so beautiful in Alaska and seeing it from a glass ship is one way - but, then, you miss all the inland beauty. However, that's way out of my means.

  13. Hi Carmen! Can't see Dolly's House... ;))

    Blogtrotter Two is almost leaving Costa Smeralda. But still has some new pictures for you to enjoy!!! Drop a line and have a great weekend!

  14. Gorgeous scenery, and the second photo is a fantastic capture, Carmen!

  15. awwwwww... so stunning. this is one of the reasons why hubby wants to visit Alaska.

  16. aaahh.... it seems to be a beautiful city.... mountains, trees and a river..... must be great to live in

    You are always on the go. I celebrate my 66th birthday on Sunday. The last two years, on that occasion, I was in Rome. I wish I was somewhere exciting this year.

    It is so beautiful in Alaska. I loved Ketchikan but, of course, one day visiting on a cruise ship, isn't nearly enough.

    You and your husband should definitely do an Alaska cruise. If, at all possible, do one of the train trips before and after ( I never could afford that ) so you can see even more.

    Actually, Ketchican is a small Alaskan town, not on a river but the Inside Passage, part of the Pacific. Most of Alaska is very rural, wide open spaces, very few big cities. It is so beautiful, full of wild life, bears, moose, etc, and, when cruising in those water, you see, killer whales, bear, etc. It's unbelievable.
