Several Miles outside of Columbia Glacier. The Ice Bergs were everywhere so we really had to putts along to navigate through this area, it seemed surreal but was very exciting - first time for me to navigation around that type of stuff.
This berg was much larger than my boat - makes for great ice for the cooler.
This shot is in Shoup Bay about 8 miles from Valdez, we camped here for the night and enjoyed the sounds of the glacier calving all night and day, although we did not enjoy waking up to huge hunks of ice wedging and rolling between our boats.
Pam and Lynn enjoying the Gull Rookery back in towards the Shoup Glacier at high tide.
Caleb fighting a pink salmon all by him self, pretty good for a 2 year old.
I wanted to see if I could pull my boat with my dingy, let's just say I would not want to cover to much distance that way, but it would do in a pinch.
Mission accomplished, it sure felt good to make it to Valdez, almost as good as the shower and breakfast at the Totem.
Sawmill Bay - this was an amazing area with huge mountain vistas and very calm mooring.
The seas were so good on the trip, we could have made it to Valdez in this.
Unless we ran out of gas like this - Tom (giving me the tow) gave me a hard time about having to earn a boy scout badge... I was actually just saving gas.
The Party Raft - I was crafty and managed to not have to put anchor down - I may not get away with that on the next trip - something about sharing the load.
Well these photos are a little out of order, but this is us getting gas in the harbor in Valdez - I am getting 4 miles per gallon.
Tom's got a 27ft Sea Sport, of course with 4 kids the C-dory would not quite cut mustard - it is quite the boat and sure nice to ride behind when the chop starts kicking in.
This is near the narrows in Valdez and where we slayed the silvers - what a total hoot.
I did not know what I was doing but managed to get my limit both days.
Family picture time on the new Kayak - this Aire is a very stable platform and lots of fun to explore on, a little more responsive than the dingy's.
Mark got a nice shot of this eagle on lookout in Siwash Bay.
Swimming in Siwash bay, can it get any better. I do this every now and then just to remind me how much I do not want to do it on accident.
