Alaska Cruise – Part 11

6th June, 2017.

Next morning we arrived at Alaskan Dream Cruises’ docking facility at Auke Bay across the channel from Orca Point Lodge and some 20km north of Juneau, Alaska’s capital. There we were taken by bus to Mendenhall Glacier before being dropped off in town for a free day.

The waterfall cascades down the cliffs quite close to the glacier.

Lupins were growing wild everywhere.

We were bussed to Juneau where we were greeted with the sight of no less than 5 cruise liners which poured around 10,000 tourists into the town, most intent on hitting the tourist shops. As it was approaching lunchtime, we found ourselves a table at a waterfront cafe and had a nice halibut lunch. We did a short walk around the waterfront area but the press of people was all too much for us so we opted to take the early bus back to Alaskan Dream.

Once again we were treated to more whale watching.

And another beautiful sunset.

    Dear Nussbaumerweb.. we are so much enjoying your wonderful photos and congrats to erich for the action but we both are puzzled as to who we are watching having such a wonderful time. We do not recognise any person in the photos and are interested in your names and maybe how we came onto your gmail list. Please do not remove us. Apologies if we should have recognised the name and photos….. Bill & Lesley Brady, Ballarat, Australia.
