It's another busy summer in Alaska! This is Week 5 in 2010; there will be 12 more. The season began in Whittier, AK on May 22 aboard the Coral Princess. After three weeks, I "transhipped" to the Sapphire Princess where I am now. At the end of July I will tranship again to the Island Princess. These three ships have two different itineraries so it makes for an interesting summer. Moving from ship to ship is a bit hectic because I have to move my stuff on and off and then fly to the next ship. Once there, I have all new people to begin working with. It does, though, make for great variety, and after ten years on the ships I know a lot of the captains, cruise directors and staff.
I continue to pinch myself that God gives me such an unbelievable arena of beauty and people in which to work. What a blessing!. As always, I continue to have new and unbelievable experiences. The picture below is one of the serendipities of this job. After dozens of sailings past the site of Mt. St. Elias, I finally saw the entire mountain in late May.
