Empress of the North - cjs - 06-08-2007

Don't know if the news about the Empress of the North got out of the Pacific Northwest, but last month this gorgeous paddle wheeler had an oooops in Alasaka -

"Alaskan Boat Passengers Calm Amid Chaos | May 15, 2007
When the Empress of the North ran aground, the band played on - as everyone disembarked in an orderly fashion. Passengers jolted awake by the ***** hitting a reef in Alaska's Icy Strait were ordered to don lifejackets and gather in the ballroom."

Well, it caused quite a stir up here anyway! But, the reason I'm posting this is that she just came into our port about twenty minutes ago - don't know if the work will be done here, or if this is just a stopping off point for her. It was still pretty dark and she was all lit up and looked so festive - for the crew, that's all that's left on board!!

We'll drive down later and be looky-lous and maybe take some pictures. She's a beautiful *****.

Yes, we heard about it down here. My goodness, I'm glad the Captain and Crew were professional on that boat and everyone got out safely.

We heard about that on the news here, too. It really is a beautiful boat. Take some pics.
