Alaska and Canada

If I wasn't so tired I'd write a full complete entry.

Right now, I'm in Youbou which is on Vancouver Island, Canada. Yesterday was the end of the 7 day cruise my mom, my two aunts, my cousin and I all took, which was lovely. The cruise line was a little lacking, but seeing the sights was fantastic. Oh, we cruised to Alaska. Beautiful, beautiful area. Trees everywhere, and snow capped mountains everywhere. I got so many pictures and filmed a bunch.

We hit Ketchikan [where I bravely ziplined from tree to tree. A very hot girl was hooking us on to the line and said me eyes were pretty. Bless her heart for getting me mind of the fear for two seconds] and Skagway, Junea, and Prince Rupert which was really plain, not much to do at all.

On the ship I saw quite a few younger people [12-14] who were gay and probably didn't know it yet. Mostly girls. Besides that, hardly any gay people at all =[ One older lesbian couple.

But based on what I've heard I'm anticipating seeing quite a few in Vancouver. I've heard that it has a rather large gay population [or so says its website]. Vancouver's our next stop. We'll be there for 3 days, 4 nights. [I think there's a couple people on here who live up there, yeah? If you can give me any advice on what to hit up while there, let me know!]. Then we drive down to Seattle and stay there for a couple days, then go down the Oregon coast towards home.

A long, enjoyable trip =]

Here in Youbou it's been raining on and off, heavy and light. It smells so clean and fresh. You don't get fresh air like this in California. Plus, it's so pretty, all the trees, and mountains and lakes. Hell, even the clouds look better than they do in California.

And as far as C goes, there's not much to report. I'll update more on this later, but we've been talking via texts and messages when we can [Alaska made it hard, but we texted here and there] and there's been no talk of the subject of her liking me. But like I said, more later.

Oh yeah, yesterday was

Oh yeah, yesterday was shopping day, and our hotel is on Robson, so we really hit that up. We didn't get to Granville but we wandered down to Gastown. I think we walked past the art gallery [on Robson too?] and we saw a couple artists, but we didn't stick around to see much else.
