Checking in back from vacation...



Had a wonderful time - cruise ships are the height of decadence yet also the height of relaxation - but believe it or not, I managed to get a sunburn even in



Fireweed - the "state flower", it`s surprisingly tasty in jello-form.



Can`t really see it in the pic but glacier ice is bright blue because of the condensed oxygen in it.



Yup, I went on a hiking tour into the wilderness. And it was worth it.




Now this should give it away. And nope, it wasn`t Santa`s backyard. *g*

Alaska? Beautiful pics! And as sunny as it was, I'm surprised you didn't automatically wear sunscreen!

Yup, Alaska. :) And the sad thing is, I WAS wearing sunscreen, I pretty much always am on vacation yet I still got sunburned. Just me and my usually translucent skin.

Translucent skin? So you can see through your skin? LOL Hmmm. Was it a high numbered sunscreen? Or maybe you sweated it off.

Heh, I was being a bit cheeky but my skin is really, really fair and I usually don`t tan but burn right away. For suncreen I mostly use 50 or at least 30 but I think I should have re-applied more often. Oh well. :)
