Icebergs!

water, land, and sky

The first thing I saw this morning as I looked at the glass sliding doors was an iceberg and mountain walls behind it.  We saw many more icebergs on our journey through Tracy Arm.  Some were pretty small; others much larger (yeah, I know that's not very descriptive!).  I noticed how water would hit off the chunks of ice, and they didn't flow fully with the current.  White was a dominant color of a number of the icebergs, but blue also commonly appeared.  The water was bluer here too.  The mountains rose up from the shore.  Up on the peaks we could see glaciers, the sun glinting right off one of the icy fields.  Thin waterfalls splashed down the sides of the mountains, the water disappearing behind trees before reappearing to jump or gush into the fjord.  While we could see some of Tracy Arm from our balcony, we chose to bundle up and go the main deck for a better view and running commentary from a naturalist.  As we were leaving, we saw our sister ship the Diamond Princess.  The ships blew their horns as passengers snapped photos.
