Cruise to Three Glaciers

Thursday we cruised from bay near Calafante to see three glaciers from a huge catamaran. Tom and I braved the cold and wind in one of the bows to get the best photos. Not only did we see a 400 foot glacier calve, rocking our ship with it’s wake, but I took photos of the crew pulling up pieces of iceberg in the channel. And, yes, Evan, we did get to eat glacier. The cruise photographer also took a picture of me using my camera, although he charged everyone else for the same shot. Don’t know why I got special treatment, also got a hunk of ice to eat.

We did get film of the glacier calving but I can’t seem to get it on the blog.

  1. One good thing about Open Gym duty is that I have time to catch up on this wonderful blog, now that the papers are graded. This looks like another fabulous trip and I will try not to fall behind reading entries from now on–you’ll be gone for four more weeks!!! However, by the time you return, I will have mastered the gluten-free clementine cake recipe from today’s Gazette for your welcome home dinner–after we return from our modest turn in the South. Love–Claire

  2. I am so glad you are having a good time. I have never been to the places you have, and I am glad you are finding such wonderful thins to do. Did I not tell you that once in one place (any place) you’d find too much to do?

    I am looking forward to read your next discoveries.
