Much needed photo updates

So its been quite a while since I've posted photos on here so I thought I'd share some photos that have been living on my camera since we left Alaska. 

Here are some photos that I took the night that we left Haines in the snowstorm and also aboard the ferry as we traveled down the Alaskan inside passage.

Here is what the truck and trailer looked like when we arrived at the ferry terminal.  We would wait 5 hours for the boat to arrive and would have about 4 new inches of snow to scrape off when we finally got ready to drive onto the boat.

This is the ferry that we took out of Haines and into Bellingham, Washington (just north of Seattle).

Another view of the snowy ferry lot on the night we left.

Here Matt is relaxing in one of the bunks in our stateroom onboard the ferry.

Here is the truck and trailer on the car deck of the ferry.  Not any excess room anywhere.

This set of photos is from our recent Shetzer Family Reunion in Chicago.  We visited the Chicago Musuem of Science & Industry to tour the U505 German submarine exhibit.  During the war bond tours following WWII, Ted served on the  U505 during the tours of the boat.

Here is the whole family in front of the U505 along with our guide, Art.

The foreward torpedo room of the U505 - Look at the bunks, can you imagine sleeping in there?

Here Ted is in the control room of the U505.
