Closer view of glacier

This passing little 2-decker boat begins to give a scale of the glacier. Google says it is a mile wide, 180 feet high, and 400 feet deep in the water!

Glacier Bay National Park

During our first night on the cruise ship we left Skagway and cruised along and out of the Lynn Canal into the Icy Strait, so that when we woke up we would be entering Glacier Bay NP off of the strait. So when we got up and got outside on our 'porch' we saw our first ice bergs that had calved off of some glacier. They were pretty small calves though. About an hour later we met a substantial glacier name Margerie Glacier.

Our Cruise Ship

We boarded our cruise ship in Skagway, Alaska in mid afternoon after we got off the White Pass Yukon Railcar ride down the coastal mountains (see a coastal mountain stream at Midtown). But since the cruise ship was not scheduled to leave until 6 pm, of course we had time to deboard and go shopping in Skagway. Two other cruise ships were at dock, so many, many others joined us or us them.

I haven't been around in a while and had password issues when I tried to get back into my blogger account, but it seems to be fixed now.

I'm loving the Bob & Shirley vacation pics. Does Bob have his own blog now?

I like Cassie's new blog, too, but can't seem to post a comment over there. Do I need to be invited? I like her version of the Degas ballerina.

I was going to take Mick to visit a trail ride today, but when I got there to pick him up, he didn't want to go - said he wasn't feeling well. He seemed a little disoriented. I've seen him like this before and suspect he's having TIAs. He'll probably be fine tomorrow. I'll be going back on Wednesday.

Happy blogging, everyone.
