What a lovely adventure you had!

Nature Notes..Michelle

Wow.....what an amazing opportunity.....Talking of aging. I now qualify for a scooter that I hope will allow me to go to more places that require walking like the zoo. But it is a kind of ....need that I never saw for myself....Michelle


Hello Sallie :=)
What a great experience you had. Enthralling images of the fjords and the Amalia Glaciers. The snow capped mountains are a beautiful sight and you took some wonderful photos. Thank you for your commentary Sallie, for it added greatly to the spectacular views knowing you could see them whilst you ate your breakfast, and watch whilst crew members brought back chunks of ice for your drinks.
I really enjoyed your post,...and am glad you will continue to share your holiday photos.
All the best


Beautiful photos, Sallie! It does look like it would be cold on deck! Glad you were able to observe it from your room and breakfast table. We had a similar experience on an Alaskan cruise when our ship sailed down Glacier Bay National Park. Hearing the ice crack or "calve" as they called it, was remarkable!

What an incredible experience. Sad to think that the possibility of the next generations might not see this.

The glaciers are amazing, we recently visited Fox Glacier with similar scenery.

Dear Sallie, it`s a magical place indeed. I understood very well.

This week has been turbulent... The internet is too slow, it's tedious. Nevertheless, I don't want to miss out on looking at the individual posts, which I really enjoy as always.

And I'm delighted with your contribution to

Greetings from Heidrun

Wonderful to see! Thank you for sharing.

This is something I've always dreamed of seeing. So beautiful, and thanks for sharing your photos!

Penelope Notes

These are remarkable images, Sallie, and I can believe even more amazing in person. On our Alaska cruise we had views of glaciers melting and large chunks of ice breaking off into the water … landing pads for seagulls. It was wondrous but also a sign of our warming climate.


Great photos but I agree it's really impossible to capture the beauty of huge nature environments in two-dimensional photos - glacier scenes or the Grand canyon

Love seeing the glaciers, the water and the mountains. We saw glaciers when we were on an Alaskan trip.


Glacier is an amazing thing to see in real life

Your Amalia Glacier sailing adventure sounds fantastic!
Waking up to the sight of icy fjords stretching across the horizon must have been surreal.
Ending the day with a delightful dinner accompanied by music must have been the perfect finale to such a glorious day.


Wow! Amazing views beautifully captured.


Sallie, please do continue blogging about your adventures as speaking for myself, I am enjoying seeing the wonderful places you visited, all from the comfort of my computer.

Why this is amazing. i can't imagine it. thankyou for sharing. Looks like it was a fantastic trip. Enjoy your week. I am joining you at Mosaic Monday.


The experience must have been fantastic. Our travel to Patagonia was fascinating, but very different, with several days on land before we embarked on the ship. I’m looking forward to. your next installments!

best, mae at maefood.blogspot.com


i think you may have experienced the perfect day, with absolutely stunning views!! talking about and seeing the glaciers brought me a little scary shiver, it was nice to read that you were excited about the whole experience!!

and the ice went in the drinks?? how cool is that!! your pictures are stunning today sallie, i enjoyed the entire narrative!!

Well that's a view that most people in the world will never see in person. What a wonderful trip for the two of you. Hope the last few days of February are good ones at your Canal Cottage!


Wow, that would be something to see. Generally at sea days are pretty quiet but one would be looking at the glacier constantly.


Fantastic views of the glacier country! How long was this great cruise?


This must have been an amazing trip! Your photos are wonderful and what a lovely ending to the day. Drinking cocktails made with ice they brought back and listening to a delightful piano and violin duo. A lovely day indeed.


Beautiful views of the glaciers and mountains.
I would love that view during breakfast.
It is interesting to have glacier ice in your drinks.
Take care, have a great day and happy week ahead.

Your glacier viewing sounds absolutely delightful, Sallie! Glaciers are truly marvelous, and it's terrible the way they are disappearing from all over the globe. How fun to have glacier ice in your evening drinks! Thank you for sharing.
