Kenai Fjords Cruise

     The Kenai Fjords Cruise out of Seward was amazing! My oldest daughter, Alicia; friend Judy Reynolds and her daughter Susan with her two daughters, Jaden and Kaiya; and, I arrived within a few hours of each other the night of the 30th. We stayed at the Ciri Windsong Lodge on Exit Glacier Road - had a fabulous meal, visited for a while, and tried to get some sleep before the big day.
     Up and off in the morning to the parking lot and shuttle for registration. A near miss almost had us on two different boats - LOL - we were in separate lines and didn't realize there were two 8 hour trips. Minutes before departure we reconnected! What a hoot.
     Prediction was for rain, but we lucked out and had sun most of the trip even though hats and gloves were needed if we were on deck.
     All of us took photos and these are a small representation of mine - I snapped 238 digitals and immediately threw 65 in the garbage! It was hard for me to focus as the boat was rocking and some were just not up-to-par in resolution. Anxious to see Alicia, Susan, and Judy's collections.
     Hopefully you will be able to view the video I am uploading and then there is a link below it to a public area for my album on Facebook.
