Woke up around 8:30, and after our standard breakfast of all the meat for Keith and fruit for me, wandered off the ship around 9.

 We walked around the tiny town for a little bit, and made plans to shop later.  Keith found a tiny tour guide place that offered the same bus tour into Canada that Disney offers for $150 each.  Their price?  $38 each!  Oh, and both Google Fi and T-Mobile don't work in Alaska.

11am: Keith found a little BBQ place where Keith got a caribou burger, coleslaw and mustard beans - the beans were interesting.  He ate it on the bus, so we could get going.  I, as usual, was not hungry, but got some Sprite in case my stomach got upset with the windy roads.

The bus was filled with Malaysian tourists that were pretty funny and rowdy, plus a few Japanese tourists that kept the bus waiting while he made a beer run.  His poor wife never left the bus!  The guide was an old trail guy who was a bit ornry, but funny - he knew a ton about the area.

 The bus made tons of stops, and while we didn't see any bears, we did see some mountain goats way up on the rocks, and got to climb around tiny pocket pools of snow, icy water, moss and rocks.

Keith disappeared down a cliff next to a iced-over lake once we crossed into Canada, and I was seriously worried he'd: A: get eaten by a bear, B: get lost, or C: fall into the icy lake.  As we're all heading back, he appears...on the opposite side of the lake!  He had walked around the whole thing while out of sight!  Oh Keefies...

One of our last stops was at a glacier runoff waterfall, we all filled our water bottles with it - it was so cold and clean tasting!  Our guide says that's where he gets all his drinking water, you can't beat it.

Keefies needs ice cream in Alaska, apparently.

We were back by 2:30, and we were going to go shopping, but I had a meltdown - I felt like shit, couldn't tell if I was hungry or not (and didn't want to eat even if I was), and just could. not. even.  Keith is so patient, he talked me off the ledge and we headed back to the ship for me to be hangry there.

I ordered room service while Keith napped; a steak panini which turned out to be a giant steak on a roll, baked mac n cheese, the cheese platter, and two ice cream bars.  After picking at it (mostly the cheese), I felt better about life in general.  We got ready to watch the premiere of the new Alice in Wonderland movie (in 3D, meh), and headed out.  The movie was really good, I wished it wasn't in 3D though.

Keith got a popcorn tub and an orange soda - the popcorn bucket was Han Solo in carbonite (now my teabag holder).  It immediately broke, so we needed to swap it out the next day.  We watched the Frozen Deck Party for a bit before dinner, and also got the Frozen Scavenger Hunt - basically, you run around the ship looking for 3 places each day that have a giant Frozen sticker on them. The clues were tough, too!

Dinner was at Triton's again, and was a Frozen menu: keith had norweigian fish and entree, and I had a vanilla salad, mustard salmon, and an apple pudding cake.
