Alaska From The Ocean



A shot I took with my iPhone in July of 2013 as we cruised past on a Celebrity cruise liner.  A different look of the mountains from what we are used to as we see them from the Alberta side daily.  Very stark contrast as they rise out of the ocean as compared to the foothills and prairie on our side.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Nothing fresher than a glacier in Alaska. The prompt this week is Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh.  The definition provided is “the definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing). Fresh is definitely this cantaloupe (“melone”) granita I enjoyed recently here in Italy. It cooled me down immensely (and it didn’t hurt that it was delicious, too!) “.  Doesn’t fit, BUT, I have an out.

“In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means FRESH to you”

This fits very well.  Fresh can me refreshingly cool.  Taken as a panorama shot on my iPhone.

Hello From Hubbard Glacier

A quick photo off our ship. This is Hubbard Glacier from a half mile away. Extremely impressive.


How You All Doing

Man, what a crazy summer so far.  Between multiple trips to Winnipeg, floods, heat and working too hard, we now will be sort of out of contact for a week or so, although I will seriously try to post a few pictures.  We are taking off to Vancouver for a day to continue with our “To Sail Or Not To Sail” adventures.  I am really starting to love the sailing thing.  Then we take off on a cruise to Alaska.  This should (will) be great.  See you soon, and I leave you with the obvious.
