Today the bay is empty of ships, but yesterday three ships occupied the view all day long. I can’t believe how wonderful the weather has been. Every day is a carbon copy of the last, sunny, warm, and perfect. Our trip is coming to an end, and soon we will be winging home to Alaska. This has been a great shot in the arm to break up the Alaska winter, but we are missing our new puppy Princess. I’m imagining her tail-wagging, wiggling and licking our faces when we see her again. Today I think we will take a long walk on the beach.
