I am sitting on our balcony still docked at Pier 91, Seattle. Our ship is the Golden Princess. At 4:00 PM PDT she is scheduled to back out of the slip and head to the Pacific via the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
I have a spectacular view of Seattle all the way from the Space Needle past Safeco and Century Link Fields and the working docks. From time-to-time large car carrying ferries head to suburban neighborhoods on nearby islands.
Dominating the background is Mt. Rainer. The upper half is still covered in snow and a small trailing lenticular cloud. It looks like a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream.
In Seattle, a city known for its rain, we are looking at cloud free skies!
If you’ve been cruising you recognize ships like the Golden Princess. We’ve been on enough to see the similarities. It’s very pretty and very well kept.
Our cabin is on Deck 12, toward the stern, starboard side. We’ve never been in a cabin with as much closet space!
