Our first port was in Juneau. We went on the Alaska Whales and Rain forest Trails excursion. It was awesome!! Before we ever even got on to our boat, we saw several bald eagles. Of course I was going ballistic. I could watch them forever.
We rode a boat out to see the humpbacks and sea lions.
The kids were so funny. They kept telling everyone that this was probably their mom's best day of her life seeing how I had seen the whales AND eagles. Too funny. Then we went on a hike through the rain forest where we saw a beaver,
a porcupine high up in a tree,
moss, granite rocks, flowers,
and the Mendenhall Glacier. There's a man kayaking out there next to the glacier, so you really get a feel for the size of it.
It was a great day. How could it not be? Look at this guy.But, he's taken. He's all mine. Nothing like a good kiss with a good looking guy up in Alaska. :)
