I should definitely start by acknowledging this is WAY TOO MANY photos for someone to post of their vacation. BUT, have you been to Alaska? Did you luck into a week of unbelievably clear weather while boating around completely pristine, uninhabited landscapes? It's really hard to choose the best photos. These are all SOOC (straight out of (digital) camera). No photoshop or anything. Just the good (or bad) of the lighting on hand.
Ok, enough about the photos. Let's talk jokes. We had an early flight out of Sacramento and at 5 am we were the only people on the airport parking shuttle. The awesome driver started rattling off jokes just perfect for a five-year-old (with one hilarious exception). And I happened to pack a joke book. So a lot of jokes were told (and invented) by Oscar during our trip.
I made him a pictorial joke list as a reminder of his favorites and here they are for you. Randomly inserted between scenery shots.
What do you call a cow with 3 legs?
What do you call a cow with 2 legs?
What do you call a cow with one leg?
What do you call a cow with no legs?
What do you call a sheep with no legs?
Why did the alligator wear a vest?
Because he was an investigator.
What do you get when you cross and elephant with a rhino?
Ele-if-ino (say it out loud. this is so funny told by a 5 year old who totally doesn't get it)
What do rhinos have that no other animals have?
What kind of bow can't be tied?
What kind of coat doesn't keep you warm?
A coat of paint
And this one was invented on the boat:
How do you turn and eagle into a seagull?
Add an "s"
The reverse of this joke was also told.
Why did the Silly Billy sit on the clock?
He wanted to be on time.
What's black and white and red all over?
A sunburned penguin
Ok, that was the favorites list--you get the idea. There are still more photos though.
Above is an abandoned saltery where they, literally, boiled the ocean to have salt to pack fish for shipment before ice/refrigeration.
Abandoned wharf at the saltery. Kids for scale.
The map for this cove showed "abandoned cabin." This is pretty much all we found. Can you imagine living here? The photo doesn't show just how unbelievably remote this is. A little cove between nowhere and nowhere else backing up to bear filled mountains. And someone lived here!
We lived on that boat.
