A lot of people do a LOT of shopping at the ports of call on a cruise. Usually I don't really get into shopping on vacation. I can never really find anything that I really want to buy. And then i always kick myself because other people seem to get the COOLEST stuff while on vacation.
However, in Ketchican something strange happened. I saw my mother-in-law standing in front of a jewelry case eyeing some raw gold flake jewelry that had been panned out of Alaskan rivers. When I looked down I just knew that was what I wanted.
So I got me some earrings. And I LOVE them. You can't really tell from this picture, but they're rough and look like two perfect little corn flakes dipped in gold. I've worn them almost every day since I got them.
