It was overcast with rain again ,the clocks went back an hr today,from the ship white horses and a back drop of wooded islands and mist covered mountains ,closer a few guillemots and the ubiquitous gulls.
Juneau is the capital of Alaska and is situated in the Gastineau channel,it is famous
for the Meldenhall glacier,it was cold sea watching as we approached Juneau a Peregrine flew
over the ship,mallards and crows along the shore.
Trevor Wade who worked for Gastineau guiding,we took a bus to Auke cove where we boarded our
boat for a whale watching trip with Captain Annette.
Here's Trevor with a specimen,before leaving we saw Harlequinn and belted kingfisher.We
were soon on our way viewing superb Humpback whales.
You can see by the weather it was not ideal conditions,Trevor and Annette gave us lots of details
on cetaceans as we scanned the bay for blows.
A rainbow with a back drop of the glacier ended our trip.We returned around 1700 hrs seeing a Bald
Eagle up close.
