Through the Inside Passage
The day and a half we had sailing the beginning of the Inside Passage was one of my favorite parts of our trip to Alaska. Ok, the entire trip was pretty much my favorite part of the trip (hah!) but what was pleasant about this time was that we didn’t have to be doing anything. We could lounge in the room, sit on the deck watching the water, sit inside the Garden Cafe (aka: the buffet) and watch the water while eating a dessert or sipping coffee. So, that’s just what we did.
Leaving port during those early evening hours we got glimpses of Canadian islands from the Inside Passage with remote camps and lodges tucked away in coves. I spied several that I could easily make as my own secluded outpost. The following day we cruised through Queen Charlotte Sound before passing Haida Gwaii or the Queen Charlotte Islands. This was a pretty great wildlife day with several humpback whale sightings as well as as several mola mola (ocean sunfish) sightings.
There’s not much to say other than it was peaceful and so very scenic.
What a great series of images. I loved Alaska, and every time I see someone’s report of a trip, I’m ready to go again. It’s not happening, but that’s fine — at least the memories get stirred, as they will for you for years and years.
