We have been extremely fortunate to have had some wonderful weather while traveling in Alaska and Canada, but not every day is sunny and blue skies. Today, our wildlife cruise to Seldovia started out grey, cloudy, and cold.
We took a boat cruise that passed Gull Island
where we were able to get our first look at Puffins! (that little guy with the orange beak)
along with some Murres doing a mating dance.
Then, we stopped to watch this humpback whale.
The sea otters were cute.
You never get tired of seeing the eagles!
This picture is not completely focused but you can see the talons as he is going in
for the landing.
More sea otters
Those back feet are some heavy duty paddlers
A shipwreck on one of the islands.
There were some neat rock formations in the water.
Here's a Black Oystercatcher
and its chick.
Another humpback whale!
You can get an idea of how enormous this is.
The tail fluke as it dives deep into the water.
More sea otters.
They are just too cute
We arrive at Seldovia and have a few hours to explore and eat lunch. This is a Russian Orthodox Church there.
The skies began to clear upon our arrival and we had blue skies on our way back to Homer.
