One of our off ship sites. A very nice man from South Africa, who had a camera like mine, took this photo of Ed & I. The cruise ship is in the background. The town of Hoonah, Alaska is here, it is a beautiful place with such friendly people, and lots to see. This is where I rode their ZipLiner zip line. Something that I have always wanted to do and now I have done it. I thoroughly enjoyed riding that zip line : ) We were bussed up the mountain for about 45 minutes, with awesome scenery and a driver that was from Hoonah and gave us so much information about the area, then let off at the top of the ZipRider. I got harnessed in and was off quickly. I felt like a bird being able to be up high flying down the mountain side. The ride is a little over a mile long and they said it took 90 seconds to get to the bottom. I did not get a sense of great speed but did get to the bottom before I wanted it to be over with : ). Ed did not ride the zip line, he waited for me at the bottom.

On our 50th wedding anniversary trip.

    I agree with all. This is a great shot of you two. I haven't yet gotten up the nerve to do the ZipLine. Sure would like to do parasailing.
