Day Three of Alaska Excursion Extraordinaire

Today we went into Ketchikan, which is an interesting little town. Upon first looking at it, you think…hmm, this is a wet muddy town. But it’s not so bad. A lot of nice little houses, and a couple of cute little shops. There’s quite a bit of fur shops, ivory shops and jewelry stores. And alaska tourist shops. I felt bad for all the huskies that the local people had on display. I guess they think that’s what people expect of Alaska. There was one that had money shoved in his collar. Poor things…Anyway, afterwards I had a very lovely massage and facial…now I feel all oily. Thats pretty much all for today.
Later!

Day One & Two of Alaska Excursion Extraordinaire

Sunday was mostly a day of figuring out the ship and the schedule and whatnot. Because this is “freestyle” cruising, it makes it much easier when you have a small baby aboard and you need to do things on his schedule. Marcus went to bed at 8:30, and I read Wuthering Heights while Kevin and Karla went out for a late supper.
Monday has included a yoga class with Karla in the morning, feeding Marcus a too sugary muffin for breakfast (that wasn’t me though…but I did watch…) trying to get marcus to sleep, but instead watching him squirm around the room grumpily. Then, after him not sleeping, I took him around the boat for a while in the stroller, then we had some lunch, and then put him to sleep. While he was sleeping I was able to slip away and take advantage (or be taken advantage of…I’m not sure) of the ridiculously expensive internet service they have aboard (service? I’m not so sure…more like a disservice at $.75 a minute.) Tonight we will have tepanyaki It will be exciting. No pictures yet, as we haven’t gone off the boat.
Until next time!
