Thursday May 23 - Seward - Exit Glacier & Alaska Sealife Centre

 

After a quiet night at the VRBO with a beer around the firepit, today was more of a relaxing day.  We did the 10 minute drive out to Exit Glacier around noon....

There were various signs showing where the glacier was in past years, evidence of the melting glaciers....

OK, not sure why the photos above are not working....so will try a re-post here and ask the moderators to remove the above post....

 

You can walk much closer to the glacier than we did.....we spent about 90 minutes here........

One of our favourite birds is the Puffin!   We first saw them in Newfoundland and then again in Alaska.  Here is a video we took at the Alaska Sealife Centre showing them "flying" under water.....

Friday May 24, 2019 - Seward - Kenai Fjords tour with Major Marine Tours

 

Today we set out on our second tour with Major Marine.   This one was 6 hours long and had a larger boat with more people on board although it still wasn't a full load.  Today's tour was a combination of wildlife, fjords and glaciers.....
