John and I have been anticipating a cruise to Alaska for years. We purchased our cruise 3 years ago and found out in April that it was expiring in August. WOW. We scrambled to find a week to be able to take this long anticipated trip. As it turned out May was the lucky month. We left from SLC and flew to Seattle for a 10 hour layover. It was awesome. We rented a car and went into the city. The first stop was "steamers". My favorite place to have chowder and cod. John had never been there before. I was more than happy to take him.
