The trip to Alaska was mainly about bears.  Of course it was nice to see the
remaining glaciers, and other sea life.  Afraid that we would miss the little bit of
summer we get here in western NY,  A trip to Hawaii was mandatory.

We were gone from Sat  June 30 Until Wed July 18th.  A long trip yes, but did
the time fly buy
