Alaska Day IX

Day nine was another amazing day (tired of hearing me say that yet?). We were awoken by the Thumpingtons up stairs (loud hotel people), and ate a quick breakfast to start our day. We headed down to the boat to depart Seward for our three hour tour to kenai fords glacier lodge. Along our ride we saw many beautiful sights and animals. We were lucky enough to see some humpbacks, orcas, sea otters, river otters (a dead one too :...( , bald eagle seal lions, dall's porpoises, and other animals. Along with animals we saw some amazing glaciers including the one from our cabin which you can see from some of the images below (the one with Christina and I is from the boat ride).

We arrived at our beautiful accommodations and were greeted by the best weather of the trip so far. After a short canoe ride we headed up to dinner. After dinner we had a research team on river otters give us a talk about the importance of otter feces.

As Christina has been saying "this is the best day". Here are a few shots from today please forgive the out of focus ones. When loading to the iPad I can't inspect them any larger then a thumb nail size.
