Been having way too much fun in Seward Alaska. Real beautiful up here and the people haven't started to hate the tourists yet...heheheh. Wasn't quite sure when we pulled in if I had been at this port before but after a few hours of walking around I remembered some landmarks from when I came up here for my sixteenth birthday. Had fun then too with halibut and salmon fishing. Not doing anything too extravagant this time around but just enjoying the resturants, visiting historical sites, museums, and finding things to send back home to my girl friend and family. On duty today and found some downtime to send out some mail to people...tis the suck-age when you have to remain aboard when it's so nice outside.

Speaking of which I was out for sea and anchor when we came in to port. Water was calm, in the distance some whales were breaching, and the mist was coming off of the surrounding mountains. Very cool. Had to laugh when we finally tied up because a cruise ship was next to us and they were taking pictures of us as we were taking pictures of them, just a stupid laugh but a laugh none the less. I wonder what the fishing boats thought when they saw a destroyer coming into port...hmm.

Happy

Haha, that is a funny picture. So people are getting pitures of other people getting pictures?

Sounds like you're having fun! ^___^

*Waves*

I am. I will be glad to get back to Hawaii again though...for obvious reasons...heheh. They really didn't know we were coming. I tend to dress to blend so I wasn't asked but my chief had several people ask where she was from...heheh, then they asked where the destroyer was parked...heheh. Considering the harbor isn't that big and you can't really park a ship on the street (length, weight issues most likely...) I thought that was funny.

Did that before, hehehe but I did have some Halibut Calabrese at the local resturant...very good, moist, and flavorful. I've started searching out penny presses and try and get a penny for everyone back home when I can. Other then that I've started sending my girlfriend pins of the places I've been and she likes orcas so I found an alaska pin with the orca on it but still haven't had a chance to take a pic of any whales breaching yet...:(
