Today we ...
Left the Emerald City and set sail for Alaska.
Two days at sea meant we ate lots of ice cream.
Read lots of books.
And got bedazzled for dinner.
We also watched the sunrise at 4a.
This was my favorite way to start each day (even though I froze my ars off).
Yesterday we ported in Juneau.
And went kayaking in the northern Pacific (where we proudly supported the McKeaigg Family Adoption).
We paddled to the Mendenhall Glacier.
And were captivated by the Alaskan wilderness.
We also paddled 5 yards away from this Bald Eagle. Uh-mazing.
Overall our kayaking experience deserved lots of leg kicks and fist pumps.
Because afterwards they fed us reindeer jerky and crackers.
While on our way back to the ship we stopped at Red Dog Saloon for an Alaskan Summer Ale and cup of clam chowder.
The day ended with this sunset which reminded us of how blessed we are to be on this trip.
Today we will experience a salmon bake in Skagway. Then head to the Tracy Arm Fjord followed by a stop in Victoria, British Columbia.
Hope to post more photos of our adventure soon!
