Icy Strait Point
|Saturday, September 1, 2018|
We are scheduled to arrive in Icy Strait Point, Alaska.

Day at Sea
|Sunday morning, September 2nd|
I stepped out on the aft deck to watch the sunrise.
|6:37 AM Alaska Daylight Time|
We are at sea enroute Anchorage.
|I guess there are others who like to snap sunrise pics.|
|Zoomed in a bit.|
Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day!
|This is a "Day at Sea" with no land in sight.|
The seas are smooth today.
|Later, in the afternoon, the skies are still perfectly clear.|
|There are plenty of activites inside the ship.|
I would rather be right here watching the sea, doing some
reading, listening to some of my music, and
possibly spotting some interesting wildlife.
Next time: Anchorage
