Gluttony: the dining experience aboard a cruise ship in which one never experiences even a hint of a hunger pang, yet eats no fewer than five 5-course meals every day for 7 successive days.

Majesty: a solitary bald eagle.

Breach: to leap party or completely out of the water, head first, and land on the back or belly with a resounding splash.
Disappointment: to be in the "head" (i.e. boat's powder room) when the once-in-a-lifetime viewing took place. (Sorry Lynn!)

Bubble Net Feeding: a group of whales working together to capture schools of herring. One whale will swim in a circle while blowing bubbles under the herring. When the bubbles rise, they form a net and scare the herring into a tight ball in the center. The whales then come up through the middle with their mouths open, capturing large amounts of food.

Beauty: Tracy Arm Fjord. Our captain even encouraged us to compose our own Haiku to describe the view. We ungraciously declined.

If you look closely, you can see the bear!

True Love: (1) the motion sickness patch. (2) Starbucks hot chocolate.

Fine Art: a family totem pole.

Crystal Clear: the state of sea water in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Holy ICICLES batman... I have RT just looking at those pictures!

It is beautiful though, and I still would have rather been there than chasing after my kids for a week- sans hubby.

Looks like you had a fun trip!

Jealous!! The one place I would love to go and yet will never get there. Looks like a lot of fun and was probably hard to come back to reality.

ALASKA! I'm jealous, too! How did you bribe Tim into not making his goofy face for that picture? (I don't really want to admit how dumb I am, but it took me awhile to figure out that whale picture-it looked real to me.)

FABULOUS pictures! Looks amazing. And so do you, my dear, you're barely showing.
