Sunday, August 4, 2019
Breakfast at Tsar's Palace.
This is how they serve a banana!
Hmm, a lot more ice in the water! (Disenchantment Bay)
Turner Glacier
W end of Hubbard Glacier
The E end of Hubbard Glacier extends behind Gilbert Point (KSS)
Sort of a close-up of Hubbard Glacier;
the ice at the face is about 450 years old
Hubbard Glacier, of which we see about three of its six-mile width;
it is 350 feet high above the waterline and 250 feet below;
Hubbard Glacier is North America's largest tidewater glacier
Leaving Hubbard Glacier, a glacier that is advancing because
of warmer temperatures; it reacts opposite to most glaciers
Trying a selfie at Hubbard Glacier, but where is the glacier?
There it is! with Erich, Tamiko, Dylan, Pete, Kent
Lunch at Garden Café: Italian Buffet.
Lots of trivia and card games.
Dinner at Garden Café: Grill Buffet.
Saw an orca dorsal fin passing by.
Next: Seward.
