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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. Lydia, it was so cool – You could hear the Glacier crashing and it sounded like thunder, the entire ship was quiet – because we were all just amazed at what we were seeing.

  10. These pictures are amazing! My husband and I did an Alaskan cruise for our 20th and we went to Glacier Bay. There was a seal laying on an outcropping of ice!

          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. I have looked through my Facebook pictures and it’s not there. I’ll have to think about where it might be

            1. 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.

              1. Yes, it certainly could be. But sometimes things come to me in a flash. I like to just let things percolate in the back of my mind and then maybe it will come to me.

                1. 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

                  1. 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!

                    1. So sorry about your husbands passing, It was a really special vacation and I was not even interested in going, I just did it for my husband – but then ended up loving it – Just like you!

                          1. That is so true!
                            We have these preconceived notions that sometimes get in the way of us even trying them.
                            We have to practice being open.

  11. Your posts are all beautiful. The camera you use must not be a phone but a really good one. It captures the beauty.
