Silver Aniversary, 25 years July 18, 2012 pictures of our trip to Alaska and more

I am not going to say a whole lot in this post, just to say thank you to The LORD for helping me and thank you to my dear wife for putting up with me for 25 year. I still believe our vows to this day. There has been bad time, good times and great times, great times are like the down we took our vows, another one was the day our precious daughter was born and placed in my arms in the delivery room.

My dear wife has always wanted to go on a cruise, the prospect was not even luring to me at all, until some one told about the Alaskan cruises. With that we planned it for our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.  We had a great time for the most part, I will not get too political in this post, but some later post I might talk about the violation of our liberties in the airports and getting on and off the ship.

We took a seven-day cruise north bound on the Princess Sapphire, we left our of Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. We stopped in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway Alaska and the last two days cruised through  Glacier Bay and College Fjord, docked in Whittier toured for a day into Anchorage and flew home late that night. We did shore excursions on each stop.  For me and Sheila I think also the highlight was July 18, 2012 in Skagway the morning of our anniversary we started our shore excursion with a helicopter ride to a glacier (it was cool), then the copter landed our tour group and guide at a trail head in the wilderness, we hiked for 6-7 miles and back out to our trail head, then we caught the White Mountain Pass train back into Skagway.  I am going to post some pictures and hopefully a link that will allow you to see a whole bunch of pictures of the inside passage and the shore excursions. We had a bless and great time. Thanks to all those who helped us get there. Remember freedom is not free. When good men do nothing evil men prevail.
