Glacier Bay, Alaska – Part 1

These were our views from the deck of the Ruby Princess, it was so breathtaking, I am posting in two parts. Few words, mostly pictures

In my mind this is the entrance to Supermans secret layer….
He was floating by on an iceberg.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

  1. Absolutely stunning! And I especially adore your Fortress of Solitude allusion. 😀 There’s something about icebergs, and especially things like glaciers, that absolutely fascinate me. There’s a wonder and mystery and timelessness to them that are difficult for this temporal brain to comprehend. Perhaps this is my Tolkien fan side coming out here, but I like to think of the Earth’s timeline in Ages, as did/does Jesus (Matthew 28:20–“And lo, I am with you, even unto the end of the Age.”). I am reminded of Peter talking about the great Flood in 2 Peter 3:6, and how it destroyed the world of that age, immediately after which possibly some of this ice was formed… It’s like gazing at the stars–you are looking backwards in time.
    Also, I love the color of arctic ice! 🙂

    1. Mandy, we love how you write. You have a real depth and soul to it. We are both more science related, so you know how you always want what you cant have…… Plus we are both great Christians, so anyone who quotes the Bible is someone we are talking too. I read thru the Sunshine blogger and am grateful you nominated us, our very first nomination on anything, so we will filling that in over this week for sure.

      1. Fantastic! I can’t wait to read it! But seriously, no pressure. 🤗 It took me well over a month to respond with mine. 😬 I’m so happy to meet other believers; it’s like running unexpectedly into family you didn’t know you had.

  2. Wow, just look at those beautiful iceberg photos, I would love to go on a cruise as well – from Vancouver preferably – just to see such a natural wonder before it all melts away one day. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to more travel photos

      1. I don’t remember where they are. It seems like we probably took it with our phone. But those phones are long gone. Wonder if I shared it on Facebook? I might be able to go through my pictures on there.
        It was 4 years ago.

      2. oh no, it could be a long search, this is exactly why we are post as quick and often as I can, because the photos get lost to the void. WE have lost soo so many pictures – even though we have them, we just cannot find them.

      3. Wanda if you do find that picture I would love to see it. We would love to go back to Alaska it was just so different than I thought it would be a lot more spiritual I guess I felt safe there not that I don’t feel safe here but I just felt I guess that I was in the right place there would you go back? If we do I think next time we’ll take a car

      4. We absolutely loved it! Best vacation ever. It was different than I expected. For some reason, I thought I would just be looking at a wall of ice the whole time!
        But, it’s beautiful and natural and unspoiled!
        I don’t know if I would go back because it was so special and now my husband has passed away and I think it would take away from our memories.
        It did have a very spiritual feel.
        I felt like I could really unplug and just be!
