Alaska Preview

Quick recap of the Alaska trip.

When I get a second to catch my breath I'll share some stories from the Alaska trip-- and believe me-- there are stories.  The people who came along are fantastic and made the trip all the more enjoyable.  Seriously, I'm sure there will be a reunion get together with many of them.

Anyway, I'll put up some pictures, but to quickly sum up-- we saw all kinds of wildlife; caribou, wild horses, moose, bald eagles, otters, seals, humpback whales and more.  We saw incredible scenery both on land and from the cruise ship; glaciers, mountains, icebergs, rivers and the ocean.  It was pretty incredible and I'll tell you all about it soon.  In the meantime, here are some photos to tide you over.

    It was a great trip and like Nancy and Dick said it was so much fun having you and Julie in the group. I'll never forget the HUGE lobster tails at dinner and the waiter who played with paper dolls!

    The trip remained truely fantastic even though you and Julie had to go... I'm not sure how, when we all get together, that there will be enough time for sharing everyone's pictures and hearing everyone's stories! You guys have some catching up to do. Played any cards or word games lately? Take care, Lisa

    Jason, it was a pure pleasure to travel to Alaska with you and your wife Julie. Sorry you had to leave a week early. I am sure we could have all gotten into much more trouble than we all did as it was!!! So many laughs and we especially enjoyed your impersonations. I dont know if you heard what Mike bought Bro and I would never want it posted on here of course. You will have to find out when we all get together sometime. Thanks for playing trivia with Dick & I even if we did LOSE!! Anyhow, its nice to have a couple of new friends. Later.....Nancy & Dick
