My dad always had boats and we spent many summer adventures on the intracoastal, the Florida Keys and the Bimini Islands. I had an inner ear infection when I was in college which affected my equilibrium. Boating became most unpleasant for me. I tried the ear patches and they worked okay but more often then not I would just sleep on the trips. When my DH and I started cruising years ago I bought the cloth bands with the bubble pressure knobs to wear on your wrists. I have not had a single problem since! Even on the rough sea days I can go to the dining room while others cower in their rooms. :-)
We had no rough weather on our Alaskan cruise. The weather continued to be beautiful as we visited Skagway on day four of our trip.
As of the 2010 census, the population of the city was 920. However, the population doubles in the summer tourist season in order to deal with more than 900,000 visitors.We took the three and a half hour train excursion to the White Pass Summit -- the train travels 20 miles from tidewater to the Summit of the White Pass – a 2,865 foot elevation.
The history is fascinating! Here are just a handful of the many pictures I took.
And of course I had to have a picture of the Bookstore. :-)
