{Alaska Update: Days 5-6}

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Spending two days at sea means ...


Lots of whale watching.


Eating.


Jumping on the bed.


Picture taking.


Titanic tributes.


And animal charades. Ps, did you know that moose have 4 stomachs?


Yesterday we watched the sunrise before passing through the Tracy Arm Fjord.


This man was kindof a magical rugged distraction. Not. gonna. lie.


We saw glaciers.


Waterfalls.


Canyons.


Mountains.


Icebergs.


And finally the best view of them all: The Sawyer Glacier Pretty sure my crayon box shorted me this color of blue.


Overall, this was our favorite day at sea.

Tomorrow we port in Victoria and hope to visit Butchart Gardens as well as celebrate National Canada Day. We'll be returning to Dallas late Friday night and are already looking forward to sleeping in our own biscuit.

HAPPY (almost) FREAKIN WEEKEND!

XOXO

I'm pretty sure my crayon box shorted me that toxic-but-not color of green in the last picture.
