There was a hint of colour to mark the start of a cloudy day. The wind is brisk and the temperature bracing. The highlight of the morning was the Culinary Demonstration with the Chef and Maitre d'Hotel. Both provided an entertaining parody of a cooking show. The 'show' finished with one of the waiters singing a farewell with a voice worthy of an opera star. His performance received a well deserved standing ovation.
We drifted into a simple lunch and made our way to the Theatre for a screening of the ship's videographer's captures of the Glacier Bay Experience. We were so impressed we signed up for a $60 set of DVDs.
At about 16:00 we were advised that there may be possible whale sightings as we entered the Canadian Inside Passage, a series of narrow gaps between islands where the waters are quite turbulent. We stood on the open deck for over an hour and eagerly snapped images of the simplest sightings of a whale blow. I was able to recognise about eight separate images where there is a hint of a whale.
Dinner was in the Horizon Court after which we watched a movie - "Woman In Gold" staring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds. A powerful story sadly shown in a mediocre venue which made much of the subtitle text impossible to read.
Tomorrow we arrive in Vancouver where most of the passengers will disembark. We will need to leave the ship while some essential maintenance is carried out.
If you want to look at what I've been up to you can view a collage of whale sightings by following this link to my main album.
Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
