cruising alaska...

we've been back from our second Alaskan cruise almost two weeks now.  after years of cajoling my sister Marilyn and b-in-law Terry, they joined us for the cruise as did our cousin Ava. my better half and i  flew in to seattle on Saturday.  we got in late, leaving only time for dinner before heading back to the hotel to rest up for our sunday departure.

the Norwegian Pearl didn't sail until 4 pm on sunday which left some time to have a look about.  we took the rapid ride from just outside our hotel to the seattle center area where the space needle is located.  the center was blur of activity with the northwest folklife festival going on.

wandering through, we saw parts of the chiluly glass and arts exhibit.

the schedule was filled with different musical acts appearing on the main outdoor stage.  we paused a moment to watch a haiku drum group made up of young teens. it was thrilling. check out the short videos below.  sorry, I didn't clock the name of the group.

after wandering through the center's gardens it was time to collect our bags from the mayflower park hotel and embark the Pearl.
bees were buzzing

time's a'wastin' !!

anchors aweigh!!
