We were on the Zaandam in early May 2018....and couldn't get into Tracy Arm (due to ice)....

 

Plan B was a beautiful trip down Endicott Arm....a gorgeous day....with a couple of bear sightings....:)

 

Until I saw your map....I couldn't remember the name of Endicott Arm.....thanks....!!!

My recollection is that Endicott Arm is advertised as pretty much a given if weather conditions are unfavorable for Tracy Arm.  I am not surprised that it is pretty close to an equal attraction.

@Quartzite Cruiser,  as others have said, your DH’s pictures are amazing. Please thank him and please post more. 
We are booked on the Auckland to Seattle cruise next March and it would be wonderful if there was an astronomer to speak and show us the stars.I can picture standing on deck and looking up in amazement.

We live near an area that bills itself as “The Lilac Capital of Ontario”. I love lilacs but we are a few weeks away from them blooming here.

This is the best thread on CC. Thank you all.

Good afternoon. Thanks for the Daily Rich.

Good days and good quote. Alas, no mate to kiss.

I like the meal and wine. I'll pass on the drink.

I've cruised in Alaska but I don't think to Tracy Arm Inlet. Thanks for the great pictures!

 

It's sunny and warm, but they are calling for thunderstorms, 60mph winds and perhaps hail later today. I need to move a couple of potted plants into the garage so they don't get pummelled.

 

Prayers for the care list and cheers for the celebration list.

Stay safe everyone!

 

 

 

 

Oh my....those are strong winds!  Batten down the hatches and be safe!

Oh, your lilac is taking me back to the home where I grew up!  There was a small lilac tree/bush in the backyard and it always bloomed before May Day so we could make a bouquet of flowers for our Mother.  The scent was so fragrant.  I loved it!

 

Back in Michigan when I was growing up, we had a neighbor across the street that had a boundary row of huge lilac trees/bushes. All colors but mostly purple, I've always liked lilacs and the smell from their yard didn't hurt. They are no longer there, unfortunately.

It took me awhile to get back to the computer and to find what I was looking for.  In honor or Astronomy Day,  I have a few pictures that DH took last fall and early this year when we were in Quartzsite.  I think I may have posted some of these before, but I don't have notes on which ones I posted several months ago; so I hope you enjoy them again.

 

There are many fascinating objects in the sky not only planets and constellations, but clouds of gas and dust, clusters, galaxies, the moon and nebulae.  We think the nebulae are the most interesting.

 

This is a double cluster in Perceus.

An open cluster with an exploding star.

The Triangulum Galaxy

Now we come to the stars (excuse the pun) of the show, the nebulae.

This is so beautiful!!  Reminds me of the huge lilac bush behind our house when I was a child in Colorado. The smell was intoxicating!  So glad you were able to keep the deer away so you can enjoy them.

Good evening everyone!  We are just home from our little getaway and Blue is happy as punch to be back home from the vet.  I had said that I was very sore from walking but realized last night that I was actually retaining fluid in my ankles and feet which was causing me to feel sore. All the restaurant food caught up with me. I will have to remember that for the future. 
 

Thank you for the Daily Rich and the past two years and the beginning of year three!  Thank you for your lists Roy. 
 

We have been to Tracy Arm once on the Oosterdam 7 day round trip Seattle. I’ll look for pictures. 
 

Have a great evening everyone!!
