Ketchikan, Alaska

Highlights from Ketchikan! We arrived into this lovely port at 7am. We had booked a 10:30 Flightseeing tour of the Misty Fjords through Family Air. We highly recommend this tour with Dave. If you have 4 people in your group he only charges for 3. This worked out for us as we had 4 in our group. He was very knowledgeable, funny and careful during our flight. We were able to land in the Misty Fjords and get out of the plane. We walked around and breathed the freshest air we've ever breathed in our lifetime! After the tour they dropped us off downtown and we enjoyed the little shops. Be sure to check out Ketchi Candies for a yummy little treat.

Alaskan Sunsets

How about a sunset for every night of the week?! They sure were spectacular and each was it's own. The sun set around 10:30 pm while we were there it was the strangest thing! And at 4:00 am it was bright as ever before once again. 
Many of these were taken right from our balcony on deck 6 of the Celebrity Solstice:

                                                                              Oh look, an Orca Whale!

  This sunset was taken from the top of Victoria, B.C. in Canada. What a beautiful city, by the way. Mansions, blooming gardens and historical homes all along this coastal town.
