I’ve been out of cell service since we left Seattle – so this is the first chance I have had to update anything. We can’t disembark in Ketchikan for an hour, so here I am scrambling to write something ahead to put into the blog feed.
The weather was gorgeous in Seattle as we pulled out – Sunny and warm enough to make it feel like we were headed to the Caribbean, but north was our destination. Still, the pools were busy, the music was festive and we were on our way for a week long adventure ---
You can see downtown Seattle in the distance as we were pulling out to sea---
The other side of the ship showing the Space Needle getting further away!
Folks on the deck getting ready for the best part of all…THE FOOD!
The grilled chicken is my favorite – oh the aroma!
There is no shortage of good food on the ship, everywhere you turn!
Here’s a look at our cabin for the cruise:
It’s not huge, but it’s comfy and sufficient!
We’ve got a little balcony to watch the scenery ---
Check out that pink and orange carpet!
Looking back at the cabin door…the bathroom is that white door to the left.
My favorite of all – Towel Animals!
This guy was telling us to set our clocks back an hour to adjust to Alaska time!
Our classroom is well equipped, a wall of bright windows gives us more light and allows us to watch whales and dolphins while we sew ---
Other half of the class --
We are sewing on beautiful Janome Horizon machines ----everyone is loving them!
If you ever have a chance to travel with Sew Many Places – you will love it! I have another trip planned for November 2014 ---I’ll be traveling the Western Caribbean with Mickey Depre ((Yes we are teaching our Collaboration Celebration Quilt!)) and Pam Holland, and the fabulous Kim Diehl so you won’t want to miss that. Click HERE for more info! You can also find the info in the tab section at the top of the blog for future reference.
The dates are right after the International Quilt Festival in Houston, we sail out of Galveston, and your package can INCLUDE the festival if you wish!
That’s all for now – time to get breakfast and get ready to disembark! Looking forward to a great day in Ketchikan – more photos when I have further internet connection!
