The longer I stay in Alaska the better the weather gets. This can’t last for long, but since last Wednesday all over Alaska, at least from Anchorage to Nome, we have had sunny weather.
We returned yesterday for a cruise around Prince William Sound. We had glorious sunshine, infinitely better than the heavy rain and blustery weather that forced the cancellation of our previous attempt several days ago.
We left from from the little town of Whittier, 60 miles southeast of Anchorage.

We Also Saw Lots of Sea Otters, An Endangered Species Here

Leaving Surprise Glacier
Both John and I loved the unspoiled Prince William Sound. Once we left port we didn’t see any roads, any automobiles, any houses. Raw nature is more beautiful than anything human or human-made, except for the three B’s: boats, bridges, and bodies.
