The beginnings of a tense day

Cruising among glaciers and wildlife and having the advantage of an National Park ranger narrating was both exhilarating and information overload. We joined the Major Marine Tours(recommended by Kris). This was a 5 hour afternoon cruise through the pristine waters of Resurrection Bay. The pictures will tell the story.

An all you can buffet of salmon and prime rib was enticing. It equaled some the best prime rib we've ever had. Accompaniments were cranberry horseradish , fresh salad with mandarin oranges, rice pilaf, sourdough bread, and salmon. Even I over extended the limits of my stomach. Food organization was commendable. A late afternoon desert session of fresh fruit, cheesecake, brownies, and jello arrived just in time for hot coffee.

Wildlife viewing included Dall shell, mountain goats, stellar sea lion, harbor seals, puffins, tufted puffins, numerous eagles, and humpback whales. It is incredible how the Dall sheep and mountain goats negotiate the very narrow ledges only inches wide.

Photos are slow to upload and the inteernet service slooooooow-I'm trying to be patient!!!
