So we just got back from 11 days in Alaska on a private yacht. Yes, I hate me too. How many awesome vacations should one girl get in a summer? (answer: 3). We are so, so lucky (especially lucky to have generous family friends with a yacht! in Alaska!).
The trip was pretty much as awesome as it sounds and despite there being 6 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog the boat was roomy enough that it didn't feel claustrophobic.
The weather was very gray and rainy most days but the views we did have were amazing.
Ok, so this post just deleted itself for the THIRD time (after two times I started saving but not often enough). Typepad, I am annoyed! So, without further commentary and with frequent saving, here are some more photos including: wildlife we saw and wildlife we caught and ate. Enjoy!
luckily, the wine was "salmon safe" (!)
And this is where I could go on and on with photos and stories of stuff we did and stuff we saw but it's 11:15, I have work in the morning, Typepad is sucking etc etc. Suffice it to say it was awesome!
But one final, funny quote. After a week at sea in a very nice yacht with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen with granite counters, Biscuit was incredulous about the bread warming device they pulled out of the cupboard, "you have a TOASTER on this boat?!" Funny kid.
