Alaska Day 2

The second day I was in Alaska we went on a harbor cruise to see the wildlife.  We had to drive to Seward which was a little over 2 hours away but the drive was so pretty you didn’t even notice.  The weather was really cold and rainy but we had an awesome time anyway.

Here is our boat.

We saw a few different animals while on our cruise.  There are loads of eagles there so we saw a lot of those.

Beautiful waterfalls.

Here we are on the boat at the very beginning before we started freezing.

We finally had to put on hats to brave going outside on the deck of the boat.  It was really cold and the rain and wind were pretty bad out on the ocean.

I didn’t have a big enough lens to get a good picture, but this is an otter back floating.

That is a glacier behind us.  Don’t mind that I am a shopping cart away from being a bag lady, I mean seriously look at that outfit 🙂

After our boat ride we hiked up to a glacier.  It was pretty amazing to see one in real life.

On the drive back we stopped at this pretty spot to take more pictures.

On our drive back we were about 1 hour from home when traffic was totally stopped.  There was a fatal accident up the road and it took them 4.5 hours to get it cleaned up and the road opened again.  This was the sign we were stopped by the whole time.  

When we left Seward we bought me some huge 1.5 liter waters because I was dying of thirst.  I guzzled one all the way down thinking we were going to be home in no time.  Bad idea when I am not pregnant, really bad idea when I am.  I am not an outside girl at all, so the thought of having to pee in the woods was horrifying to me.  Luckily my little sister Terri talked common sense into me through a text by telling me it was either the woods or my pants.  After waiting for almost 2 hours the woods won out.  John has never been more proud!

It was an awesome second day and I was exhausted after it was over.  Since we were stuck on the road for 4.5 hours I had to sleep part of the night in the truck.  We didn’t get home until 2 in the morning and John said that was the darkest he has ever seen it get there in Alaska was at 2:00 AM.
