Another bright & early day on the boat waking at 4:30 a.m. to find that it was already light outside. Not wanting to waste a minute of sight seeing time, I threw on some warm clothes, grabbed a mug of tea and my camera, and went out on deck to watch as we pulled into Idaho Inlet. On this day we spent the morning doing open kayaking and a guided shore walk with Marika and our fellow passengers. In the afternoon we pulled up anchor and made our way to the Inian Islands. The weather turned a bit from what we’d previously experienced, so we got quite wet on our late afternoon skiff ride with Alex to see sea lions, sea gulls, and a whale before returning back to the boat for dinner.
