Cruise from Vancouver, BC to San Francisco

We took a 3 day mini cruise from Vancouver, BC to San Francisco with our good friends Bonnie and Dennis. Bonnie and Dennis live in Arizona, so they flew up late Friday night. Saturday morning we took the train from Seattle to Vancouver and caught the ship. Here is Gene sitting on the balcony enjoying the sun and a drink before we leave port.

Here is Bonnie and I enjoying cocktails before dinner.

And the guys, Gene and Dennis, enjoying their drinks.

Gene and Bonnie decided to take naps (in separate rooms!) so Dennis and I hit the bar scene.

We hit rough seas during the night and the following day. Everyone took to their beds except me. I roamed around the ship, spent time in the library reading my book, and making new BFF’s for 2 days. I met a lot of interesting people. This one woman said her and a group of friends took the train from LA to Seattle. Spent a few days enjoying my beautiful city and then was catching the train to Vancouver to catch the cruise ship. They found out 10 minutes before they were to leave for the train station that their travel agent made the train reservations for Vancouver Washington not Vancouver Canada! Crazy! They had to hire a shuttle to get them to the cruise ship and they almost missed the boat. I wouldn’t be using that travel agent again! Here is Gene enjoying his day of seasickness with his favorite toy, the remote control.

They had to cover the pool because the water was poring out of it with the motion of the ship.

Our last day on the ship and the weather turned out beautiful. Here is Bonnie and I with Alcatraz behind us. That’s Gene’s hand behind Bonnie.

Love the Golden Gate Bridge! There was a touch of fog coming in.

Here is a picture of The Princess from the port in San Francisco.

And it just wouldn’t be San Fran without a picture of a seal sunbathing.

Or without Gene shopping!

We spent some time on Fisherman’s Wharf before D & B’s son picked us up. We spent some time at Kevin’s before Gene and I had to head to the airport and home.


Not another pair!

I was at Nordstrom and couldn't resist a glance at Toms shoes. They are burlap and soooo cute! Yes, I bought them.
