On our first day in Alaska, we took a 6-hour cruise around Kenai Fjords National Park. I was hoping more than anything else to see whales, and sure enough, we did. Our triple-decker catamaran was maneuverable enough to get very close to them, and they didn't seem to mind us. This was a mother and her baby, and she was observing as it practiced breaching.
I try to find beauty in the everyday, primarily through my photography, which I share here. I also try to keep my brain thinking creatively every day, even if the rest of me is not in the mood, so the posts here are as much for me as they are for you.
