Looking at glaciers while in your jammies is fun!

This post will mainly consist of photos. Words really can’t do justice to the breathtaking beauty of Glacier Bay. I was awakened on the morning of August 24 by voice of our cruise director (Julie!!) announcing that were were approaching glacier bay. We opened our drapes, and for a while, I lay in bed as we floated by the gorgeous scenery, which was blissful. As we approached our first glacier, I threw on a hat, put a jacket over my pjs, put some coffee on, and went out on our balcony to get a better look.

I was once again struck by the stunning blue of the ice. As we got closer to the glaciers I realized that I could also hear them. For the most part, things were silent, but every once in a while, we’d hear creaking and cracking, followed by splashes, as some of the glacial ice broke free and fell into the water.
