Alaska: Day 3.

Day 3 on our Alaskan cruise was by far one of 
my favorite days on the whole trip.
The views this day were TO DIE FOR.
We were crusing all night from Seward
to Hubbard Glacier and then we cruised
all that night and got to Juneau on the morning
of Day 4. 

[ND] went rock climbing!

The boys played in the Texas Hold 'Em tournament on the
cruise. None of them made it very far.

Beautiful views all around the ship on this day.

I loved the floating ice. 

My first seal sighting! 

Hubbard glacier is the big block of ice to the left.

I love how this seal is posing for me!

We sat on our balcony almost all day this day. I loved it!

It was pretty warm this day (aka- like 60-65 degrees!) and
 parts of the glacier were pretty much melting off the
 whole time we were there.
This is called calving and we have some great videos of this.
It sounds like a really loud lightening crack when it splits off 
and then it sounds like thunder when it crashes into the water.
It was really cool to watch. 
The captain of our ship kept blowing the air
horns to try and make more pieces fall off. And it really worked!

The drink of the day this day was an Iceberg! 
I may or may not have had the drink of the day 

[AD], [ND] & I 

I loved being by the pool on this day. Such gorgeous views from
all around.

Family photo by the glacier! 

Pretty waterfall!

Lots of seals on this iceberg!

On the front of the boat in the rain!

This day was so much fun and the views were gorgeous!

I hope everyone is having a great week.
