Monday 16th July, entering Glacier Bay
The promise of a great day at Glacier Bay had me awake early at 6 am.
And then up in the Horizon Buffet for an early breakfast of egg, ham and cheese muffins. I was then outside on our balcony wrapped up against the cold, watching as the ship entered the misty Bay.
As I watched I spotted these Dall sheep high above us.
In front and behind the Bay was still misty.
We were passing some amazing scenery to our side as we made our way into Glacier Bay. I grabbed a shot of a sea otter and saw my first iceberg.
On Deck 10 forward I watched as we came closer to the Margerie Glacier.
