Alaska Trip Update

After a week on the ship I finally have internet access. We did get our luggage on Wednesday, thanks to the hard work of the Cruise staff. Yea! The cruise was great. In spite of cold, windy, rainy weather every day except the last two, we enjoyed seeing the towns of Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway. The last two days of the cruise were the best as far as weather and sights. We cruised into Glacier Bay and Prince William Sound to see the many awesome glaciers and snow covered mountains. We also were able to see orca, sea otters, porpoises, and we even spotted a couple of whale in the distance.
Monday, we disembarked the ship and headed for Homer and Kenai. What a great drive that was. We saw a number of moose, a caribou, and dozens of bald eagles. The scenery is spectacular. Here are a few pictures of the trip so far.

I will add more as I have internet access. Off to do some hiking.
