Say Hi to the camera!

A family of Orca Whales in Prince Rupert (British Columbia)

Our last cruise stop was Prince Rupert in Canada which ended up being my absolutely favorite. For over an hour we were able to follow this family of orcas (mommy/daddy and baby orca). We learned alot of interesting facts about orca's life but also other whales (like the humpbacks) which were native to the area but we did not see...Arent' these precious?

The Nursery

The Nursery has been completed. It has been painted by my dad and touched up by Mary Lou and the chair rail was put up by David and Stanley. Thank you to all, I really appreciate it. The furniture made it's way from the garage to the nursery after the paint dried and the chair rail was up. As you can see, we had a bit of an assembling party after which we hit up the steak house to relax. Whew! Thank you all so much for helping with it, would not have been able to do it without you!

The before and afters!

Aren't you glad i did not pull one of these at my wedding?

As you all know, Chris Brown is one of my favorite singers and that is one of my favorite songs but I don't think I could ever pull one of these off! haha!

Inside Passage!

These pictures were of the inside passage as well as one of the glaciers that the captain wanted us to see. He did a 360 degree turn so all of us could see the "end" of the glacier. It was breathtaking. While in the inside passage we saw some seals. Some people saw whales but i did not. Pay attention to the only "green" picture and you will see a tiny bear.

Glaciers at last! (Series 1 of 2)

The float plane picked us up and off we went into the sky. This excursion was a substitute to our mushing excursion (since it got cancelled because of heavy fog). But nonetheless, we did not regret going to see the glaciers. Here is a brief excerpt of what we saw.

The glaciers are remnants of the Ice Age making up the Juneau Icefields 1,500 square miles of solid ice. We saw the imposing faces, deep crevasses and azure blue melt water pools of the Norris, Hole-In-The-Wall, East and West Twin Glaciers and the Mighty Taku. Of the Icefields 36 named glaciers, the Taku Glacier, five miles wide at its base, is the only glacier not retreating (it's actually advancing)!
