Today we are getting picked up from The Ramada Hotel in Anchorage at midday. Taking a scenic wildlife tour to the boat. Had breakfast at The Hard Rock Cafe and then went for a walk around the markets. There was a cool kids merry go round using little ponies as the rides. Spent 1 hour at the Alaska Wildlife Reserve on the way to the boat. There were bison, a bald Eagle, grizzly ...
... I could get my camera sensor cleaned at Stewart's. Then we drove up to Kincaid Park to see the views since it was a nice, clear day. The views were spectacular and we were surprised at how many soccer fields were up there. By now it was noon and we went to
pick up Nolan and Evan Rand. The boys have become friendly with Evan and Nolan over all the years we have been coming and enjoy biking, playing and hanging with them. This year The Rand's were in ...

On the train ride (back and forth) we saw Bald Eagles, ...

We sailed right to the end of the bay to Harvard Glacier ..... I swear I thought the ship was going to bump into the glacier. This glacier was 2 miles wide .... Not quite as high as Margerie but because of the calmness of the water and the lack of icebergs we could get so close.
There were otters floating on their backs and a seal on an iceberg but they seemed to like the port side of the boat and we didn't see them.
