Bon Voyage!

Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau Alaska

Well I was able to get 99% of the packing done. I did fine on food yesterday. I will tell you I am soooo looking forward to being able to cook again. It has been a month since I cooked a meal :-(
At least on the ship they have LOTS of healthy options (and a few not so healthy!) Last year I was able to not gain any weight so that is my plan this trip too. Lots of fresh seafood, fruits and veggies.

Not sure how much computer access I will have to post while I am gone. I will be keeping a handwritten travel journal of our adventures so I will post that when I get back. Here is our itinerary:

7/23/10 Fly to Seattle
7/24/10 Embark the Golden Princess
7/25/10 At sea
7/26/10 Juneau, Alaska
7/27/10 Skagway, Alaska
7/28/10 Glacier Bay - Scenic Cruising
7/29/10 Ketchikan, Alaska
7/30/10 Victoria, B.C. Canada
7/31/10 Seattle, Washington (Fly home)

I will also try to post updates and pictures on Facebook as well. We take off for the airport at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. I bid you all farewell! I will miss you guys! Until next time...

P.S. This is my 499th post!
