What are the rectangular objects in your last photo?

 

They appear to be aqua colored, but that could be a reflection of the sky.

 

 

Tree seedlings in a protective container . Well spotted !

On the way back to the ship we stopped at the Rio Simpson Museum ( it was closed but we could walk around the park area ) and the Puerto Aysen Suspension Bridge for photos .

Our cruise through the fjords was overcast , grey , and misty . Not the best for photos .

The featured highlight was the shipwreck of The Captain Leonidas

But it is a pretty area as you can see in this video clip :

 

 

 

We decided to go watch the organ play in the Atrium

That organ! Wow - amazing.  My cousin had a recognition at her church a while back for playing the organ for them for 50 years.  What a talent.  Misty grey days at the fjords, not the best but it is what it is.  I had to go look up the Captain Leonidas.  Very interesting.

Sailing through the fog and mist is spooky and enchanting.

Thanks for sharing your day.

 

It surely is as it lends a mystique . We had a lot more later in the cruise .

Great pictures and videos.  Loved listening to the organ on the Zaandam.

 

Sorry you had a foggy/misty day in the fjords.

 

Thank you . Here's another catchy tune played on the organ by a "ghost" . Who can name that tune ?

It was spooky that nobody was playing . We would have loved to have see a concert on that organ .

That would remind me too much of Phantom of the Opera.

We didn't know which glacier that we were going to early in the morning but we have been to Amalia twice

In 2007 we had wet snow on the NCL Dream

In 2013 on the Zaandam it was better

It wasn't too crowded when we first got there
