Hi Again Paula,
Sorry. Forgot to thank you for the camera tip. That 10X opitcal zoom you have should be great for Alaska. That is a nice camera. How long have you had it? You should get some beautiful pictures. Mine is a little smaller, only has a 4X optical zoom with a 2X optional converter but is capable of shooting in a RAW mode.
Isn't the technology exciting.
Have a great day.
I look forward to meeting you and your husband.
Again thank you,
