July 13, 2015 (Seward to Anchorage)

It was drizzling when we woke up this morning, which is rather unfortunate considering we have to spend the entire day in the town of Seward before we take the train this evening into Anchorage to catch our plane back to Calgary. I had hoped to walk around a bit, but it was a challenge... Continue Reading →

July 12, 2015 (Hubbard Glacier)

Today we spent the day cruising around Hubbard Glacier. It was a lot icier in the water than Glacier Bay, interestingly enough, but the water wasn’t nearly as pretty and blue as it was yesterday.  There were lots of beautifully shaped, blue, sparkly ice bergs floating by. It was fun to see which ones were... Continue Reading →

July 8, 2015 (Ketchikan)

Today we visited Ketchikan. In the morning we walked around town a bit. It was pretty touristy, but cute. We are so lucky that it hasn’t really rained yet.      When I was planning at home, I found us a great kayak trip independent of the cruise line. In the afternoon, we went on our three...
