OK- I am desperately trying to post froma tiny little store in the middle of nowhere with a giant satellite dish that I can buy some interent time. Every one thinks I am checking my email.
I don't know what day it is, there is no communication with the outside world (barely) all I know is that I am so not as rugged as I thought I was. I have become a luxury princess and this is not a luxury cruise. I'll give you all the details when I get home, but just know that this morning when I tumbled out of my tiny hard little bunk to use the communal bathroom, my feet went squish and I thought for a second that maybe, just maybe the boat was sinking and I got all excited that I would be able to go back to civilization. I had decided that I would just leave everything except my CF card from the camera to sink, and replace it all. It turned out to be an over filled water tank. Boring. Damn.
On a less negative note, Alaska sure is beautiful, even when it is raining. (90% of our time here so far) I'll show you all the gray landscape photos when I get home.
There is some hope that the weather is going to turn and maybe, just maybe we can have a day or two of blue skies before the end of our adventure.
We haven't seen a bear yet, but have enjoyed a few bear poo spottings. We have seen whales, porpoises, and sea lions. Also an eagle who tormented me by bobbing his head around in his nest and not coming out. I am keeping my eyes open for more. The vacation will not be complete without a Moose. I won't leave without seeing a moose.
I'll post again if I can, otherwise we are off the boat on Sunday.
