Pics from our cruise...

We got back from our cruise on Sunday.  We had such a nice time being with one another, seeing beautiful places, relaxing, catching up with our friends Andrea & Elliott, and of course eating lots of yummy food!!!  The weather at sea was a bit windy and chilly, but all the stops were 70 and sunny, just beautiful!  Here are some pics...

The wonderful pre-sailing drills. ;)
A lighthouse!
The Golden Gate Bridge...I think the Captain said the boat clears the bridge by 13inches!!!
I don't know why, but I love watching the seals.

Of course, we had to stop for a little ice cream at Ghirardelli's! :)
Our favorite park in San Fran...it's a hike from the pier, but worth it!

1st formal dinner...had to get a picture out on deck even though it was FREEZING!!!
Everyday there was a new towel made into an animal...the puppy was one of my favorites!
Our view from our table at a local brewery in Victoria, BC.  So beautiful!
Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria
Random pics from within the castle...

The view from the top of the tower in the castle...if you look closely you can see our cruise ship in the background.

Top of a lighthouse in the middle of the street, random, but hey I like lighthouses! ;)
The beautiful Empress Hotel

Seattle!


Now this is what I'm talking about!!! :)

In Seattle we got to spend the day with Andrea & Elliott! :)
