Another beautiful day in Alaska . . .

Hello Everyone!
We are having a fabulous time in Alaska and the weather has been amazing!
Today we ventured out to the Hubbard Glacier.
OMG what a site and we did see a few parts of the glacier fall into the water.
This glacier (not the mountains in the background) is taller than the Statue of Liberty 
and more than 7 miles long (left to right).


Check out this view from our stateroom ...

 
 The glacier was amazing!
And, yesterday while walking through the town of Haines
look at the beautiful lilies and delphiniums I came across!


How exciting tonight while we were having dinner with a couple we met on one
of the excursions ... we looked out and there was not one but 2 or 3 Whales breaching the water right from the dining room windows.
I spotted the blow first and then there was more and more so several people were at the windows oooing and aaawwwing!  What fun!!

More fun tomorrow as we are going out on another Whale watching expedition and marine animals.
Catch you later ... 
Hugs from ALASKA!!
