Although still in the state of Wa. at this time, these were photos of Alaska from the ship as we passed on our way south to Seattle on the last day of the cruise..  The ship was the Star Princess and an amazing, beautiful hotel on water.
Food was fantastic, and delicious, and so many restaurants to choose from I put diet and such out of my mind, and ate what and when I wanted... I think it's called reckless abandon, and I say "so what."
Entertainment was as diversified as the food, and all of it good.  I'm trying to do a little painting while here at my friends house. So hopefully back to some painting soon..

Stateroom had a balcony. So could take a lot of scenery photo from there.
Seattle as we were leaving the port.


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Nice to see the pix.

  2. I've never been on a cruise so love seeing the photos of the ship too. I so love Washington and I really do miss it so very much. So often I find myself wishing I'd never left. Glad to see more of the PNW through your eyes, my dear BJ. Always looking forward to seeing your next art works too.

  3. Thanks for sharing all these beautyful photos from the trip! Enjoyed it alot! It must have been amazing to see all these places, and to meet with your friend after such a long time. Take care :)

  4. Dear BJ - I am so proud of you giving into wild know we only live once in this life - so go for it girl - eat your heart out (LOL) - these are such beautiful pictures. Looks like the ship is a floating city. Take care and have a wonderful week.

  5. Barbra Joan, I am thrilled to hear about your trip. Sounds like you are having a great time. The Alaska cruise is so special, according to various friends who have done it -- someday I will, too.

    The plein air paintings are really charming. Keep it up during your vacation.

    Living in lots of sunshine as you do, I am always thinking that I leave the best weather to go on vacation somewhere else. Last fall in Ireland, England, Scotland, and Paris, we saw very limited sun. It was worth it to see the great sights.

  6. What a wonderful cruise ... the ship looks awesome.
