    Wanted to share some recent pictures of the humpback whales returning to AK. A sure sign that spring has arrived! Hope you enjoy them.

    BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the whales!!!
    I used to work on a dinner cruise ship in Hawaii. Once in a while I would work the lunch cruise and get to see the whales. They are SO awesome!! Had a couple of them one day just swimming under and around the ship. Had to shut the engines down for about an hour until they were done "playing" and left. Somewhere I have some pictures of them. One layed on it's side and swam right next to the boat. Was too cool!!

    We start the cruise ship season this month. Gets pretty crazy here on certain days of the week. My folks and sister have taken the cruise through the Inside Passage and really enjoyed themselves. You'll have to look me up if you come.

    Been there and done that with shutting down the engines and drifting.
