This Alaska Trip

It was the season's maiden voyage of the Lu-Lu Belle, the aptly named "Limousine of Prince William Sound."

Because Captain Fred wasn't tired of tourists yet, he spent the entire day on the water showing us the Columbia Glacier, locating sea otters, sea lions, whales, and taking us in for close-ups of beautiful sea caves and waterfall dotted shorelines.

Captain Fred maneuvered easily through the beautiful blue iceberg filled waters
These pictures don't do it justice, mainly because it tries to put something so huge into such a small space, but that's the Columbia Glacier in the background spilling out its iceberg guts into the frigid waters.

I met two incredibly inspirational couples in Valdez who have become some of my dearest friends. Chuck & Kalyn, although "bogus" Texans, have hearts as big as their adopted state.

Woody & Genie were celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary, still smooching!
