Trust the Airlines to be late. We were supposed to see Tank on July 11th around 9:30. So we decided to go to his hotel to meet him. Unfortunately, his plane never arrived - at least until after they closed the bar at the hotel. So, we went back to the RV park after taking photos of the Anchorage "sunset" at 11:45 p.m.

Heard from Tank at 7:30 this morning and picked him up at the hotel. We went to the Portage Glacier and took the Ptarmigan tour boat to the Portage Glacier. Of course, Tank spent alot of time telling the vessel's captain how to operate his boat. Photos of Tank are attached along with some of Bob and I just to prove to the Doubting Thomases out there that we actually are in Alaska and actually still married. There's one of me taking a photo through a bar window of Tank - kinda a cool shot.

Drove to Whittier through the 5.5 mile tunnel - longest in North America and had wonderful Fish and Chips at the Swiftwater Cafe. Saw a cruise ship in the harbor - day was really beautiful and sunny but incredibly windy and cool.

Took Tank back so he could get some sleep - good for the passengers of the next flight.

Had a great time and it was nice to see one of the folks from home.
