bears, and whales. Oh my! What an
amazing cruise! It exceeded our
expectations! We also had the unexpected
honor and excitement of being invited to
have dinner with the ship's captain, Claus
Anderson (see picture above) along with
three other couples.
The only day we
had dreary weather was in Juneau where it
was drizzly and cold all day. Yes,
even the weather in Ketchikan was beautiful.
It was such a joy and privilege to have the
opportunity to see so much natural,
below show the glaciers, bears, and
whales in scenes of sequential
events. If you've never seen whales or bears
in their natural environment, you will get an idea of
what it looks like to see whales "breaching" through the
water, bears trying to catch salmon, and a glacier as it "calves" and
releases huge chucks of ice into the sea.
You may notice a
slight delay if you have a slow connection.
