Day - 3 Scenic cruise on Tracy Arm.
And scenic it was. Tracy Arm ends at Sawyer Glacier and today we were able to go all the way in to the glacier. This is a pretty big ship and there isn’t a whole lot of room up in front of the glacier. Carol talked to a lady who had taken this cruise twice before and this is the first time she’s seen the glacier. On our way in the cloud cover was a few hundred feet so visibility was really pretty good. On our was out the clouds dropped lower and for a while it was virtually foggy out. It was a nice day. For much of it we sat on our veranda and watched the world go by. When we’re sitting in the chairs back by the door it’s quite comfortable but when I was out by the rail taking photos it wasn’t quite so pleasant.
Tracy Arm ends at Sawyer Glacier so on our way in we passed a lot of float ice calved off from the glacier.
