. This occured three times while we were there.
We left the glaciers and at the mouth of Glacier Bay we saw numerous humpback whales. We actually heard them by the spray of their blow holes before we saw them. They were so fast that I could not get a good picture of them. You will see 2 pictures with their grey humps. It was a very cold day on the deck with a lot of wind. We were served Dutch Pea soup to stay warm and given wool blankets also. It was a very long cold day of standing but worth every minute of it.
We went to dinner at 5:45PM, went to the movie Ironman 2 then to the show to see the comedian. Tomorrow we go to Sitka, Alaska to do a 4 mile hike in the rain forest.
Today was a day at Sea. We woke up to the ship's fog horn and some much fog you couldn't see in front of your hand. I was a little worried since we were going into Glacier Bay. All I could think about was hitting an iceberg like the Titanic! We actually went to the restaurant for breakfast and had Eggs Royale, which werepoached eggs with smoked salmon on an English muffin covered with Holliandise Sauce. We then cruised down Glacier Bay National Park. We saw 3 brown bears while they were feasting on a whale carcass. It was too far away to get a picture but someone let me look through their binoculars to see them. We then went to Rendu Glacier which had a blue tingle to the ice. Next we went to Johns Hopkins Glacier but we were not able to get too close to it because Sea Otters were on the ice nursing their calves. This glacier continues to grow one mile per year. Lastly we went to Margie Glacier. It is one mile long and 300 feet high. While there the glacier the "calved" which is when the ice crashes into the water making a thunderous sound
