Besides the fact that I thoroughly enjoy my job, my colleagues, and my surroundings, another benefit of being at sea is that we sail to Victoria, BC, where my best friend lives. She and I met on ships in 2004 and have been friends ever since. A little over a week ago we docked at Victoria’s port, and I was able to spend the entire day with Tara. What a wonderful job perk! It was a great day with a dear friend. My only wish was I wish I could see her more often.
While in Victoria we visited a theatre friend of Tara's. She and I immediately hit it off, plus her backyard is the beach. Her view isn’t bad :)
The sun finally came out on Saturday in Sitka, Alaska, so Krystle, my fellow cast mate, and I decided to get a good workout. We set out for the Harbour Mountain Trail – a seven-mile hike up and down with spectacular views. I must say that the bloggers did not lie. The views were unbeatable. The photos don’t do justice to what our eyes drank in.
Krystle was ready to go. She had a little Beyonce playing to scare away the bears.
There were beautiful flowers along the trail. Below are the rocks we had to hike through. I was hoping there was no boiling mud ....
Views, views, and more views........
We made it to the top! So glad to be there. Snack time!
A few more of the picturesque scenes we saw while hiking back to town.
After four hours with steep ascents we felt we deserved the night off from the gym…. and a nap.
Hope you enjoy the photos from Victoria and Sitka. More to come…
