|there were jellyfish! |
Growing up I always thought that jellyfish were just in warm water - I was wrong!
|taking a Christmas photo in August...|
|We saw Orca Whales!|
Those guys were quick - I never got the "money shot" but I saw them out of the water - it was so cool!
|this whale hung out quite a while (I think he was a humpback whale?).|
He was playing around, rolling, splashing water with his "arms"...
I started to wonder if he was trying to wave at us!
|and shortly before the whale was done playing with us, we saw this...|

Oh man, I can't WAIT to go on this cruise again!
It was $125 per person, and it was 7-8 hours long - I would say that's worth the price!
|leaving Valdez harbor the sun started coming out and the water was this amazing teal color...|
|there are tons of waterfalls all over Alaska...|
