After a few days in Vancouver, we boarded the cruise ship for our 7-day tour of Alaska. I won't bore you with the entire trip, just a few highlights. Knitting is at the bottom of the post.
First stop was Ketchikan, which is a fishing town on the coast. This town is inaccessible by vehicle, only by sea or air. Here Mr. Bonnet gazes out at Creek street, an old part of town that is built right out over a big stream. You can see all kinds of wildlife in the stream including salmon and jellyfish. This area used to be the red light district and some of these buildings were where ladies of questionable occupation lived.
This is a really pretty little forest trail right in the heart of Ketchikan. Someday I would like to hike and explore a lot more of Alaska than you see in those short cruise ship stops.
I liked this sign on the restaurant - Mexican restaurant with the best Pizza in town!
We stopped to take a look at this little park full of totem poles.
This guy was delightful from the front!
Mr. Bonnet fancied he could see a resemblance....
And so did I!
On board ship, my favorite thing was to bundle up in blankets on the deck and knit while watching the scenery go by.
And here's one of our formal dress-up nights. Mr. Bonnet is wearing his wedding clothes!
What I did on my summer vacation....
Inspired by this scarf, I decided to make my own version out of Noro Silk Garden. Simple garter stitch with a 4 row stripe in each color. Sorry I threw out the ball bands so I don't know what colors these are. I used one skein of each color and made a keyhole scarf so it could be shorter.
