Rockford couple brings Squire on Alaskan cruise

Karen and Ray Fought brought their local newspaper along on a recent trip and provided The Rockford Squire with the following account of their adventures: “We went to Alaska via the Golden Princess, our first cruise. We were in the Inside Passage and saw Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and Victoria, B.C., Canada. We also visited Seattle before we left port. Alaska is a sight to behold. The serenity of its beauty just takes your breath away. We saw many humpback whales and a lot of spawning salmon. We even saw a bear onshore through our binoculars! So cool! And the sight and sound of the glacier breaking apart and falling into the sea was unbelievable. They call it calving. We are truly blessed to have enjoyed that experience. Just had to share.”
