After making weekly runs from Vancouver, BC to Alaska's Inside Passage, we have started heading down to the Caribbean! We docked in Astoria, OR last Sunday where my dad and my friends Troy and Brian met up with me (photos to follow). Today I'm in San Francisco, CA. Here are the other ports I will stop in on the way to Ft. Lauderdale, FL: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Acapulco, Mexico; Santa Cruz Huatulco, Mexico; San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua; Punta Arenas, Costa Rica; scenic crusing in the Panama Canal; Cartagena, Columbia; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. Will dock in Ft. Lauderdale on Oct. 21, and then make weekly runs in the Caribbean. Will update you on those ports-of-call then. Will send new photos soon too!
Eric and I in Ketchikan, AK. In the background is "Creek Street," the town's former red-light district. It now houses shops and museums.
This is downtown Ketchikan. Ketchikan is Alaska's fifth-most populous city, with 8,000 residents. It was also certified as the "Fourth Wettest Spot on Earth," with nearly 170-200 inches of rain annually.
