Raf is slowly processing his photos. I think he took in access of 500! Hoping for that one good one! This one is of Marjorie Glacier in Glacier Bay. This one is calving. It calved quite a few times while we were there. The ice is so beautiful. The turquoise so vivid. I'd seen photos, but it is breath-taking up close and personal! Our inside cabin was about 5 feet from the fore deck on Deck 6. We and one other couple, nice Canadian couple, were the only ones who used it much. Tremendous views! But rather cool when sailing. However, it wasn't a bit cold when we were stopped in Glacier Bay.Friends of ours from Texas took the same cruise about a month before we did, and he sent us this shot of his daughter in front of the Eagle totem I showed in my past post. Isn't she a lovely girl...college junior, I believe.
And more Glitter Sister photos. Wish I didn't looks like such a dufus! Oh, well. from left to right, Sioux, Violette, Nicci, and Giggles.
And, I told you guys about the gifts whey gave us. Violette's the picture and the card, Nicci the two pins, and Giggles, the bracelet (got some many compliments on it!)...and, well, I would show the banana bread, but, well, we ate it that night! YUM...thanks, Bryan!
I've had quite a few comments on my last post. Two people said they didn't see drinking. Now I never said we didn't drink, but the bars opened at 6 am and closed...well, who knows, we were asleep by then. One of my friends said they never went to a bar onboard...they they must of disappearted! Because there was at least one bar on each deck and it was often at mid-ships. Most decks had three or four, and you could go no place without seeing one! The Casino was also very busy, and we had to go through it to get to the dining room.
We did hear a wonderful string quartet called City Lights. They were from Romania and were booked to play on that ship for 6 weeks. Problem was, they played in the small longues and most of the people were so loud it was hard to hear them. They were by far the best act on the ship.
Well, that's all for now. Need to go to the post office and get busy sewing. Will post more later.
