A photo review.  Although I'll be here in Washington state for another 2 weeks, I'm posting a last few photos and will see you all when I get back to Florida.. 
 Pegs garden and koi pond and where I've been staying in Washington . 

On the Amtrak to Seattle. A 3 hour train ride and loved it. 
 The Space Needle in Seattle 

The most amazing Chiluly Glass Museum.. This piece was about 15 feet tall.
 And lunch there was so interesting.  It was full of collections on walls, in glass tables, everywhere even hanging from the ceiling.  
These were transistor radios,  but of course I don't remember them !!


And accordions hanging from the ceilings.

Onto the Star Princess, a floating city and headed for Alaska ! 

Atrium, Shops, Restaurants Internet Cafe, Theatre

Music of all kinds, my favorite? 
Janusz, lol !  the violinist on a quartet . 

From a Window. 

Juneau, Ak. There for a whole day.

Ok, all the way to Alaska to see a Wal-Mart.  LOL !

Onto Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchican.  

Did I have a great time you ask?

 Peggy,  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this possible. 
 I met my friend Peg in the late 60's in Florida where we were very close friends for over 10 years . Although life put distance between us we never lost touch .. and the last time we saw each other was about 20 years ago. She is a dear friend to have brought me out here to her home and on that wonderful trip.. I'll never forget it.
