Vacations: Planting Seeds

Written by RitaC on June 24th, 2010

Cruising the North Pacific, the Gulf of Alaska, and Glacier Bay offers profound poetic visions as my ship plies cold northern waters. Two sea lions loll on a red buoy. An otter sails by on an ice floe. A bald eagle, then another, graces a subdued sky, misted by rain. A distant grizzly bear plods on ground rising higher each year by melting glaciers.
On the flight home, mountain peaks pierce the clouds as my plane soars away from the powerful beauty of Alaska.
