Alaskan Cruise

When I told my friends and co-workers that I was going to Alaska for a week, a lot of them assumed I was going on a cruise.  That’s not surprising; cruising from Seattle up along the Pacific coast is a very popular vacation and I know a lot of people who’ve done it.

Well, last night we took our own cruise along part of the Alaska coast.  This was a two-hour cruise through Prince William Sound and by the Shoup Glacier.  Almost all of the VLFTC company went along and we saw some spectacular wilderness along the shoreline, spotted a group of otters playing in the water, and even got to touch a piece of the glacier.

Here are some photos in no particular order.  Enjoy.

Those little black dots in the water is a group of otters playing. This is as close as they got to us.

The conference ends today with a monologue presentation, a slam of ten-minute plays (including “Ask Me Anything”) and a gala dinner. Tomorrow we all head for home.
