Here's a few pictures from me and Sarah's Alaskan cruise. We had a fabulous time and saw so much, but I'll try to keep it short and sweet. (If you use Flickr, you can view the set here.)

Michelle in Portland

We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard downtown. This is the view out the window.

Portland riverboat houses

We took a riverboat cruise in Portland (Thanks for the wedding gift, Ben!) and saw these neat houseboats lining the river.

Sarah driving the boat

The captain let Sarah steer the boat under a bridge--man, was that scary!

Seattle skyline from the pier

While in the harbor, we got great views of the Seattle skyline and Puget Sound.

Sarah looking handsome

Sarah in the lobby of the cruise ship, looking so handsome for the first formal dress night at sea.

Michelle and Sarah all dressed up

Oh yeah. Michi dressed up, too.

Sarah doing what she does

Sarah lookin' a little less classy at the Past Guest Reception party onboard. Free cocktails, anyone?

Michelle eating the best smoked salmon ever

Michi's serene expression comes from eating the most delicious smoked Salmon in Skagway, Alaska.

Sarah at the Red Onion Saloon

White Pass Summit, Skagway

Snow-capped mountains at White Pass Summit, Skagway.

Michelle playing in the snow

We couldn't resist playing in 20-ft snowdrifts!

Scenic cruising in Tracy Arm Fjord

A day of scenic cruising in Tracy Arm Fjord. We saw whales, porpoises, grizzly bears, eagles--but none of those slippery seals.

Mendenhall Glacier

Money shot of Mendenhall glacier in Juneau.

Michelle with a king crab

For my birthday, Sarah took me on the Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's Tour, aka the Deadliest Catch Tour. I can't believe I got to see a real live king crab!

Eagles nesting in Ketchikan

Eagles nesting in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Michi trying to look pretty

Michi trying to look pretty--it's hard with all that gorgeous scenery around!

A little piece of Texas at Pike Place Market

Back in Seattle, chilis at Pike Place Market make me homesick for Texas.

Are those also called spider crabs ?
if I'm not mistaken, it seems that holding them the wrong way can turn out to be pretty painful :-)

Kind regards,
