A harbor seal led our dinner cruise. What fun to follow him (or was it a her) for the beginning of our 3-1/2 hour cruise around the harbor!
While in Alaska, our daughter and son-in-law treated us to a dinner cruise hosted by Marty and Marion, of the Galley Gourmet, from St. Paul Harbor in Kodiak, Alaska.
I highly recommend this cruise! Marty is the former harbor master and Marion is a master gardener, chef, author and photographer. They offer wonderful hospitality, not only in great-tasting food, but also in wildlife viewing, and entertaining (and knowledgeable stories) aboard their beautiful craft, the Sea Breeze.
The photos were taken by myself, my Hubby, and my daughter.
Enjoy the show!

For those of you who are interested in my trip to Alaska, here is a slideshow of more photos, as promised.
You are looking at my visit to Denali Park. I was blessed with a gorgeous day for the visit!
Hubby and I saw golden eagle, moose, ptarmigan, Dall sheep, bear, caribou, small critters, and fabulous scenery. Nobody creates and designs like the great God above!

My life is boring since coming home from Alaska. Ha, ha!
If you are planning a trip to Alaska, you might like to consider riding the Alaska Railroad Denali Star Train.
Hubby and I rode the train from Anchorage to Denali Park, and we loved it. Yes, it was a wet trip, and a long one, but well worth it anyway. The scenery is gorgeous! You can see wildlife, and we did, but we didn’t take pictures of any (except a nesting white swan, which nobody but us would recognize from our picture…hee, hee!). It isn’t easy taking pictures of wildlife from a moving train!
Since I did promise more photos in the previous post, the following is a slideshow with a few of our photos from the train trip.
There will be more photos for those who are interested. Next up, Denali Park.
My June goal for the OMG and Patchwork Times challenges, was to work on an old birdhouse wall hanging project.
I’ve done absolutely nothing to it.
I do have ideas, and I want to work on it. I really do.
But June turned out to be a very busy month.
I am painting an upstairs bedroom.
And the bathroom.
Both rooms will be a very soft gray, and much lighter than they were before. I hate house painting, but the results are worth it!
Progress is slow, since I am fitting the painting in between work shifts and the usual life stuff.
I took a trip to Alaska at the beginning of this month. What a lot of fun! I’d like to do it again!
I have literally hundreds of photos to sort through. I’d like to make a photo memory book for myself. This is going to take some time!
I thought I’d share a few photos with you. These are from the flight to Alaska:
I’ll share more when I get them edited.
I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal (OMG). Head on over to see what everyone else is doing!
