Friday Aug 24

Ferdy didn’t have a good sleep due to a bad head cold. He slept in a bit and we still made it to the culinary show. Since this is another seaday, we keep ourselves busy on board. Another great talk on glaciers and local geology was very interesting.

In late afternoon, we entered College Fjord with quite a few glaciers. The most spectacular one was Johns Hopkins Glacier, which is more than 50 km long, 2.5 km wide at the mouth, close to 100 meters above sea level, and 50 meters under water. All glaciers in this fjord are named after eastern American colleges. We observed some minor calving, not as spectacular as yesterday’s. We also saw plenty of sea otters, who are great in number here after almost having been hunted to extinction.

The Voice of the Oceans finals was a good show, with an Australian winning with his version of Johnny be Good. We were sad to say goodbye to Kathy and Mark, who will be traveling separately from us by train.
