Glacier Bay and More!


   Another plein aire painting for me.. not something I'm known for but I can now say I know what inspiration does to you when your  'out there' . This was one of the little coastal villages on the way back from Glacier Bay.  
While I'm on here let me say I'm so pleased to take you along, and hear how much your enjoying the trip.    

I was lucky to catch it just as a part of the glacier was breaking off. 
I know there's a technical term for it. For me it was called a 'magical moment' ..   
 Very little sunshine for this Florida lady. But it was expected so I think I handled it ok... Cold, windy, rainy, but that's all part of it.. 


While in port at Ketchican a  bald eagle flew in front of me and landed on this post.. I took the best photo I could.. 



   Right now I'm using my blog as sort of a personal journey but as I always say, your welcome to come along.. Since I posted yesterday I want to add a few more pics. 
Whether you are from the U.S. or other parts of the world I must say how proud I am of the beauty of this country..  This part of it is majestic, breath taking and awesome.. Did I leave out anything ?
                  





    Glacier Bay.A spectacular sight.

  
              A small painting of Juneau, Ak. as seen from the ship.
        yes, I actually was so inspired that I did a plein aire painting..
