Two Days at Sea

Monday and Tuesday were days at sea. We enjoyed the amenities of our floating hotel and looked forward with anticipation to our visit to Juneau and beyond. Sometime during Monday night we crossed back into AKDT, a definite sign that we are approaching Juneau.

On Monday it rained, sometimes hard, sometimes a mist. It did not dampen our spirits as we took this time to relax and read, to visit the shops and to walk around the ship. Mike dressed for the weather and walked a mile on the outdoor jogging/walking track. The crazy part is that others were walking as well. We had reservations at the French Restaurant, Le Bistro and had a wonderful meal.

The crew came to our table and sang Happy Birthday to Mike... the embarrassment was lessened because they sang happy anniversary or happy birthday at a number of tables.

On Tuesday morning we entered Frederick Sound with less than a mile of visibility in the morning fog.

We are hoping that this clears up in time for our adventure to the Mendenhall Glacier and our wildlife quest in the afternoon. As we got closer to Juneau the weather became noticeably Alaskan it dropped a degree to 49 in less than an hour.

We spotted ice floating in the water.

As we approached Juneau it started to lift....
