    North to Alaska

    My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary this year. As a gift to each other, since he wouldn't buy me a ruby ring... we are going to Alaska.
    We are on land for 10 days and cruising for 4... I am so excited. We are doing a Holland cruise.

    Does anyone have any suggestions.... everything from what to pack ( we are going in 2 weeks), to what not to miss... did anyone have any out of the way places off the beaten path... that is what we really like.

    Thanks Gals... you're the best.

    What ports are you stopping in? That will help pick out points of interest for you. While on land are you still with the group from the cruise or travelling on your own? As for clothing - it's still not real summer there - pack layers - fleece works well and make sure you have a set of rain gear, or at least a rain coat/jacket.
    We are here to learn how to live in heaven - I'm still learning.

    Where are you going? We went at the end of May, 2010, and it was over 80 degrees in Anchorage. No one was prepared - the hotel gift shop did a booming business in short sleeve t-shirts!

    You and your Husband will need at least one nice outfit for dinner, my husband had to wear a jacket, I a dress. The rest of the time he could wear t-shirt w/collar (like a golf shirt), I wore long pants with a nice blouse. Sweaters, under shirts and jackets, wool hats, gloves, warm socks when up on top of the deck, on land we wore sweater and jackets, carried umbrellas for just in case. We had a great time.

    Take bug spray for the no see ems (little bugs that bite).

    I loved Lands End on the Homer Spit. I would live there if I could.

    I would definitely take plenty of warm clothes so you can dress in layers if it is cold. Also, a rain jacket or parka would be a good idea. Notnonly will itmprotect you from the rain but also help with the wind.
