Playing Alaska Tourist (Part 1)

Having now wrapped up my project with GCI, I’m ready to have a few days of fun before I head back to the lower 48. (Wow! Don’t I sound just like an Alaskan?)

Two things I wanted to do before heading south were to visit the Alaska Aviation Museum and see some wildlife on the water. So, I drove south along the highway to Seward, Alaska’s only year-round ice-free port with access to the interior. There, I boarded the Orca Song for a tour around Resurrection Bay.

Out on the water, I saw Sea Lions,

A huge variety of birds, and the namesake of my transport, the highlight of the trip:

A pod of whales, including a very young orca, still juvenile tan instead of black and white. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos… The orcas were not cooperating, although the baby was so cute! The battery on my phone was about to die and getting these two shots was difficult as it was.
