Back to the lower 48
Bright and early (8 AM), we arrived in Vancouver. I'm sorry to say we didn't see much of it during the bus ride to the airport. I had been there years ago and it is a nice place.
When we boarded the plane, we actually walked out on the tarmac and climbed in. I was pretty surprised until I remembered we were only a short hop away from Seattle and our connecting flight to Denver.
Visibility was good and we had a good view of (what I'm pretty sure is) Mt. Baker.
And I zoomed in on Mt. Rainier.
(Too bad Mt. McKinley didn't cooperate like that.)
In all, we traveled 1786 nautical miles, which I had to google and multiply to convert to 2055 land miles. Although it looks like we had lousy weather when I read back over the blog, it didn't seem that bad or to interfere much with our fun. Ironically, we had picked June for our trip because the weather is supposed to be better then. So much for that. We really like the NCL freestyle cruising with the option to eat anytime and we wore jeans and hiking shoes or sneakers the entire trip. I know that's not for everyone, but we don't particularly like to dress up.
One last short video. Turn your volume way up and listen to what this water fountain does. You should have seen the reactions when thirsty travelers in the Seattle airport tried to use it. (My model Ron was expecting it. I should have had him do some acting.)
