I am back from a very relaxing vacation on an Alaskan Cruise. It was beautiful and a great way to spend our 3oth wedding anniversary with my wife Irene. Whales were indeed seen, (although they did not prove to be very photogenic) as were eagles, a sea otter and a brown bear. The scenery was breathtaking.
I took the above photo from our balcony while cruising the Tracy Arm Fijord on the way in to view the Sawyer Glacier.
