Alaska Day 71 Valdez Boat Trip

It’s a whale of a story butt here’s the end..DSC_0159

We went on a 6 hour cruise out of Valdez the Stan Stephens in the coupon book for $125.  What a deal.  the weather stated off rainy.  15 minutes into the trip it cleared up pretty nice.  Later on it drizzled a little but the rain was not a hinder at all.  We saw just about everything you could see on a cruise.  Here just a few pictures….DSC_0021   DSC_0036 DSC_0048DSC_0027

Here’s the young captain (single) explaining the glacier.. She’s been a captain for 11 years.  She knows the history of these areas/water and shared her knowledge.  Her narrative alone was outstanding.DSC_0132

I think this picture was really funny myself…DSC_0017

Well, it turned into one hell of a good 7 1/2 hour cruise and it seemed like everybody was happy, happy, happy.  We were!   THE END……DSC_0158
