Our weather hasn’t been the best. It’s very misty and cloudy, so the pictures are grey and muted. I met a young guy who taught me how to get off of Auto on my camera, so I’ve been experimenting with settings and light. But mist is mist, and I’m anxious for a sunny day to see if my camera skills are getting better. We cruised up and back down College Fjord and then up into Glacier Bay. Sooo beautiful!
The ship did a salmon bake on the indoor pool deck for lunch. The salmon is of course very fresh and delicious.
I took a few hours off in the afternoon to explore the spa. The heated tile loungers offered a panoramic view of the mountains and glaciers. It was a pretty special way to see the spectacular scenery go by. The mineral whirlpool, steam room, and heated loungers were followed by a massage. I was pretty much jelly by dinner. The halibut has been fabulous every time I’ve had it.

We are docking at our first stop in the morning; Haines. Cheryl, Mike and I will take a wilderness exploration in the afternoon. I think we take a catamaran and long canoe up to the face of a glacier. Should be breathtaking.

Sorry it was misty and cloudy. I am sure you will have better and beautiful days. I have been following your vacation. By the way, Boo and Scooter say HI. They are fine but I bet they miss you.
