Luna and I took an eight day cruise of the inside passage on the Alaskan Dream. There were thirty-one passengers. I’d hoped there’d be other kids, but Luna was the only one. Still, she handled herself gracefully with the other passengers and had a good time. We left from Sitka in the afternoon and cruised toward Juneau overnight. On the way in the next morning we saw several groups of humpback whales, some bubble net feeding. We docked outside Juneau and a bus took us to the Mendenhall Glacier and then into the capital, which, like Sitka, can only be reached by boat or plane. Back on the “Dream” we cruised to Orca Point Lodge for an evening crab feed. That night we cruised on to Glacier Bay where we picked up a ranger and a Tlingit cultural liason for the day.
I’ll stop for now. More later. Trying to condense this trip and the over one thousand photos Luna and I took into the most interesting, relevant, or beautiful to post here is a challenge. I’d love to show them all and share more details.
