Thursday June 30, 2011

Thursday morning we left the campground about 6:45 and left our R.V. at the visitor’s center near where spent the night and headed to Seward by car. We traveled about 80 miles and arrived in good time to board the day cruise ship “Kenai Star”.  This was advertised as a good cruise to see both marine life and glaciers; true to the advertisements we had a good time and got to see glaciers some were ‘calving”, meaning that ice breaks from the glacier and falls into the water and makes a loud noise as it breaks loose. We also got to see whales, sea lions, porpoises, sea otters, and several species of birds. The cruise included a salmon and prime rib (including dessert) buffet meal at noon. We arrived back at our R.V. about 7:30 so we had a full day of activity including travel time.
