Glacier Bay

Hi All!

Are you tired of Alaskan pictures yet? No? Well then, here are some more! Yes? Well, check in tomorrow to see if I have moved on yet!

On this cruise we "cruised" Glacier Bay National Park. It was beautiful! The day was a bit overcast and the crowds on the ship were a bit pushy but . . . enjoy the scenery! Oh - I did decide to make the pictures bigger for your ease of viewing! I had forgotten I had the pictures set to "small!" Sorry about that!

This glacier "calved" while we were watching. Of course I didn't have my camera ready to take a shot of it - that is the whole story of this trip - me being late with the pictures!

It was cold out here! We were wearing jeans and long sleeved shirts while everyone else was bundled in parkas and gloves. I got the strangest looks when I sat and enjoyed what sun there was!
I am fascinated with glacial ice. It looks so rough and it is so dirty from ground up rock it has picked up along its journey.

Look at the layers in this ice! It is like rock layers in the side of a mountain but all made of dirt and ice!
Such amazing views!

I loved the way that the clouds were on the top of the mountains.

Icebergs are so cool - this one looks like a hippo with his mouth open wide! Yes, I know I have a very active imagination. I asked Hubby what he thought this looked like. His answer? "An iceberg."

I tried to go a little "arty" with this shot out of our porthole in our stateroom. I think it turned out pretty well!

Until tomorrow!


P.S. Is there anyone out there reading this who can tell me how to cross out words on blogger?

Voice Update: Good, good, good! I keep pinching myself because I can't believe my voice has been this good this long. I am really determined to get to my exercises today and get back into the routine. Inhale/exhale matching pitches, oral reading, and massage. I am still working on getting a good description of the massage to post and to put on my podcast for everyone who asks.

Oh my gosh! Have I got a lot to catch up on here!


Lucky! (ok... you may not know this, but that comes from the movie Napoleon Dynamite... as a mom of teens who can quote the entire movie, it pops up in my vernacular from time to time... gosh).

How cool is that?!?!? I'm going to have to come back later and read up. I got on the computer and haven't eaten breakfast... and it is almost 11 am... and my son has a baseball game and I don't know where... and I'm starting to get stressed because I just want to read blogs... I need to go to the grocery store... shoot, I still need to shower!

I'll be back (yeah, Arnold Swarcheneggar.. and I totally spelled that all kinds of wrong!)
