Today we were able to have another later start. It was foggy but not too cold so Nik and I sat on the deck for a little while before getting ready for the day.

We met for breakfast at 9:00 in Tritons.

After breakfast Nikki and I took walk around the deck before heading to the Art of Entertaining presentation where we learned how to make Philo Wrapped Salmon.

Regan went and worked out and Kelsie went to do her own thing.

We met up to play a trivia challenge and we were victorious again...that is two for two.

After trivia, we went up to Beach Blanket Buffet for the BBQ.

It was shortly after lunch that we entered Tracy Arm Fjord for our cruise to the glacier. It was rainy and cold but as we sailed a little further, the fog lifted and we were able to see the mountains on both sides of the ship. The scenery was incredible.

Around 2:30 we arrived at the South Sawyer Glacier. We got to see it break apart and fall into the ocean, called calving.

The water was full of ice from the glacier and the captain turned the ship so that people on all four sides could face the glacier.The ship started it's journey out of the fjord a little before 4:00 pm .

We all headed down to play another round of trivia where our winning streak ended.Then Nikki and I went to watch the scenry go by an the girls went for a nap.

Dinner was in Animators Palate again tonight with the regular menu. After dinner we went to see the two pieces of ice that were brought onboard from the water. Then headed to the show to see Magic Dave.

After the show, we got ready for an early start tomorrow and then I hit the sack and Kelsie went to Vibe while Regan and Nikki went to Wavebands.

Did the ice from the glacier look any different than regular ice?
