Cruise Ship Visitors

Last Thursday, one of Mr. X's childhood friends came to visit. J & J were on their honeymoon cruise and contacted us for a day of storytelling and touring.

Ever the optimists (yeah. right.), we tried to cram as much as we could in to their shore excursion:
  • driving tour of Alaska's capital city
  • McCauley fish hatchery
  • Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget Falls
  • Auke Bay boat harbor
  • RotFather's Grill for lunch
  • Whale watching at the Shrine of St. Therese
  • hiking at Windfall Lake
  • Mt Robert's tram

Not bad for a single day in town. The weather was pretty awful out to Auke Bay, but we thoroughly enjoyed our sunny visit to the Shrine. And I was reminded of how friendly and charming midwesterners are - it was a real treat to meet J & J and we wish them all the best.


  1. I want to come visit and get the tour! I love your stories too! We will call you guys again soon.

  2. Sarah, WOW. You guys have been busy. I didn't even know you guys kept a blog. It was fun reading about all of the fun things that you are doing.

    How is life going? How long are you going to be staying in Juneau?
    Miss you guys!
