    Colin, I was in Vancouver for about 4 hours. Just long enough to unload at the airport, drive across town and load up on the ship. Very cool you even saw your office. Looks like a real interesting city. I liked the architecture of the buildings.

    MORE PICS ADDED TONIGHT TOO>

    Hey Rocky...

    Looks like you had a great trip. We lived in AK for seven years. What was the latest time the sun was still visible? What cities did you stop at?

    Ken,
    we stopped in Ketchican, Juneau, skagway and Whittier. the sun was out and the weather pleasant. sunny all but the last day, no rain except in disembark time and in the 70's most of the time.

    No, travel thru CAN and on the cruise ship, neither allow handguns.
