The one thing I really wanted to do while we were in Alaska was take a wildlife cruise, so we headed down to the town of Seward. We decided to take a half day cruise with a company called Major Marine. The crew was super nice, but the weather was so crappy the whole time and there wasn't an abundance of sea life to be found...it really put a damper on the whole thing. Even though it was pouring down rain, we tried to make the best of the situation and enjoy the beautiful Alaskan scenery.
On the bright side...with rain comes rainbows!
And we did get to see a few bald eagles, some sea lions and a sea otter! Sea otters are my favorite animal, so I was super excited to see one up close and personal!
After our cruise we made a stop at Exit Glacier and hiked up to it. Usually you can hike right to the edge of the glacier and touch it, but I guess it was too dangerous while we were there, so it was roped off (probably due to all the rain). We were able to get really close though and it was definitely worth it!
Even with the disappointing weather, we had a great time in Alaska and I can't wait to go back! It truly has a unique beauty that can't be accurately portrayed in pictures...you really have to see it to understand how gorgeous Alaska is!
Now it's time to start planning our next vacation...where should we go? Any suggestions?
