As you have hopefully been reading, at the start of June, we went on a cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. We stopped in port at Juneau for the Mendenhall glacier, whale watching and the tramcar, Skagway and Ketchikan.
For my tour in Skagway, I tried the non-conventional route. I probably should have headed up on the train ride with the rest of the family, but to be honest, I expected it to be raining and the views terrible. It was a beautiful day – you live and learn!
This was an enjoyable activity. We were able to take part in making a glass ball. The glass-maker did the tricky parts (i.e.: most of it, they were really just pretending we were making it;)). It would have been great to see him make something special to demonstrate.
The tools weren’t fancy!
We were able to choose the colours and design of our glass ball. I chose the “feather” design in red and white. My decision making took forever and even so I am not sure I am happy with what I chose (story of my life)! And I have to wait till we get back to Australia to see it, since it got shipped straight there.
And to finish with, me in my very trendy blue (fire retardant) lab-coat! Click on any to view it larger (or don’t – its not very glam!!).
