A short note and off for the day - backposting again from tuesday am....DH and the kids are going fishing and I am going to do a bit of hiking and bum around some of the art shops here in Seward, Alaska....
These first 3 pics are the view from our 'cabin' here in Seward. I say 'cabin' but its pretty fancy for a cabin and the kitchen is bigger than mine at home :). The views from the great room(kitchen and living room all in one) are incredible. The porch is right off the great room . The first picture is straight out overlooking the stream and a bald eagle up in the tree. The next 2 pics are looking left and right at the mountains - one of the mountains has a big hanging glacier in its bowl. It was a little cloudy when I took these pics so I may have to retake them because today is sunny and sooo clear - right now the sun is right at the top of the mountain top with the glacier so will have to wait to retake the pics till this afternoon.
The first one is of a group of sea otters - I don't have a zoom lens on my digital camera so this was as close as I could get.
The next picture is from the first glacier we stopped at - I took a picture of a spot I thought was likely to break off (or calve as its called) but naturally the glacier calved at a totally different spot - but I managed to catch most of it in the next couple pics :) Its pretty impressive to see a couple tons of ice break off and fall into the water.
Well its time to get a moving for the day - Take Care
