My Article About
This Alaska Trip

I was finally able to tear myself away from the beautiful view from home and explored the town a little. I enjoyed strolling down the harbor and one morning I had coffee on one of the boats with a captain and his partner I had been introduced to by a Texas native I had met at Mineral Creek Canyon.

It was fun visiting with them hearing of their lives split between their winter homes in Phoenix and Arkansas and the passion for the fishing charters they run here in Valdez in the summer.
I met some people who were on this cruise ship but I was not jealous of their schedule. They could not stop long enough to really enjoy the sights available in this beautiful port.
Little did I know when I went grocery shopping that I would be greeted by eagles flying around the parking lot.
I could not get over it and I started calling to people, "Look, look, look at the eagles!!!" Of course, they were locals and were used to seeing eagles in the sky and even in the grocery store parking lot and they got a bigger kick out of me and my excited accent than about the eagles. I was so glad I had my camera and got some pictures, but no way they can capture what those regal birds look and feel like when you see them so close overhead.
